Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray. - Rumi

After 13 successful years working for United Health Group in a variety of roles in customer and client services, to legal services, to regional sales, she took a much needed two-year sabbatical to explore alternatives and restore balance.

In all her work realms she observed first-hand, the challenges people faced as they strived for success in life and work. This sparked her intention to serve individuals as well as organizations.

Still wanting to do more, she pursued an education in therapeutic bodywork to support physical and energetic health of individual clients and enhance her capacity to influence organizational and individual well-being.
