With a background in dentistry, I always found myself doing healing work on my fellow dental professionals. I worked as an RDA in orthodontic and oral surgery offices in the Sacramento, CA, and foothills area for over a decade. I received my training at the College of Marin in Kentfield, CA, where I passed my written exams. I interned at San Francisco General for oral surgery and University Of Pacific (Dental), San Francisco, CA, to prepare and pass my practical exams (1993) earning my R.D.A. I specialized in hygiene education, and assisted with small surgeries and office duties. While raising my two boys, I enjoyed working on my licenses in healing work and eventually, opened two wellness centers.
My education includes: Healing Arts Institute, Citrus Heights, CA where I earned my C.M.T. I also have licenses in Acupressure from the Berkeley Acupressure Institute, CA, Bowenology Auburn, Ca. and am a Quantum Biofeedback Practitioner ( License 2008). I also studied under Carla Green Ac. for face rejuvenation and non-needle acupuncture. Invested in training with C.A.R.E. (Center of Aromatherapy Research and Education), I have over one hundred certified hours. I am also a Certified Aroma Yoga Instructor with Tracy Griffiths. My studies also led me to the ultimate reward, studying under D. Gary Young, (Founder of Young Living). I have been studying natural medicine therapies for the last 12 years including the Raindrop Technique, Neuro-Auricular, and Vita-flex therapies that incorporate the highest grade of plant medicine, essential oils and essential oil infused supplements.
I am currently ranked as a Platinum leader with Young Living (residing at the top one percent of leadership with the company in sharing and education), which takes me all over the globe to teach, learn and share. My love and studies of Pilates (with the amazing Linda Brown) along with my deep appreciation for plant based supplements and healing treatments, keep me blessed to pay forward these teachings and healing blessings to communities and practitioners in the health and wellness fields.
