I was born into a medical family. My father was a general practitioner we had his office in one half of our house.
I learned a lot from my father as a child concerning confidentiality related to patients, the emotional components
of illness, and the limitations of pharmaceuticals. My entire life was spent in some aspect of healing. I was a
candy striper in a hospital in my teens and worked in cardiac research at the University of Pennsylvania after college.
Following completion of my MBA in Health & Medical Science, I worked in development at a large tertiary teaching
hospital (Crozer Chester Medical Center) near Philadelphia. One aspect of my job was writing grants for burn care,
hospice, elderly care, addiction, and other hospital departments learning quite a bit in the process. When I attended
the Barbara Brennen School of Healing I knew in my soul that energy healing was the reason I was on the planet.
Following graduation I began my full time healing practice and I have loved every day!
I became interested in energy healing when I worked in cardiac electrophysiology research at the University of
Pennsylvania in Philadelphia Pa. The laboratory’s focus was sudden cardiac death and studied the electrical
“disconnection” which contributed to arrhythmias. This was studied both in body and in cellular microelectrode
studies. I was curious about the large “Faraday cage” which surrounded the microscope. I asked why that was
necessary and the answer was “to keep out the ambient energy.” What was the “ambient energy” I asked. “We don’t
know exactly, but it affects that single cell in the microelectrode bath!” My curiosity was piqued and I began a
quest to learn all I could about “ambient energy.”
My quest led me to the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, a 4 year program in energy healing as challenging as my
MBA in Health and Medical Science Administration and my MS in Long Term Care. We were tested each week throughout
the training, had to be in energy psychotherapy (to remove the blocks in our own field) and in the 4th year we had
to do a medical case presentation as well as write a thesis. Next I studied Core Energetics, another 4 year program,
related to how defense patterns developed in childhood create similar situations throughout our life. Not only are
the defenses and blocks in the emotional and mental body but are anchored in the physical body as well. Finally I
finished my training with the Pathwork Transformation Program, which is another 4 year program which helps to realize
aspects of our individual personality, ego, spiritual self and universal consciousness. It helps to knock down our
defenses so that we can see and accept reality, which I felt made me a “clearer” healer.
I have been self employed as a “full time” healer in Chico, CA for 20 years. I feel that I am here on the planet
to serve in this fashion, having a joy, rather than a job. I have helped hundreds of clients in coming to their
health, physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
