I have been interested in Eastern traditions for about as long as I can remember. My father passed away at home when I was 16 and I was so impressed with the hospice nurses I felt a calling to serve. I was quickly disappointed with Western Medicine and the lack of time I had to care for my patients in a hospital setting.
As luck would have it I wandered into a cadaver lab field trip that ended me leaving a career in nursing for massage therapy and the rest is history! Massage therapy gave me a strong foundation in how the body works (and how to eventually learn the art of gentle acupuncture).
Shortly after I pursued a certificate as a hatha yoga teacher and in the midst of training and lots of stress I found myself in the emergency room for an ovarian cyst that ruptured. For months I dealt with pain that no one could give me relief from or answers for. When I returned to my mat the pain dissipated and I continued my studies entering an intense program for Oriental Medicine. I again developed irregular cycles and had pain and constant fatigue.
It took me years to combine my many years of studies to heal my own body and became pregnant. I gave birth naturally and free of pain medications at home with the support of 2 midwives, a doula and my husband. I feel a special passion in regards to women’s health especially regarding painful and irregular periods and how stress affects the body.
