I have a passion for wellness after providing 20 years of clinical occupational therapy experience in various healthcare settings: acute care, skilled nursing, long-term care, specialty, inpatient rehab, home health, and wellness.
After witnessing the benefits of a preventive and holistic healthcare approach, my focus has been on working with clients to address the Mind, Body & Spirit.
My education and experiences to address these significant health components include:
Mind: A Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology
This educational experience has empowered me to understand my client’s emotional and motivational needs and provide a safe and comfortable environment to relieve stress, find confidence, and become more self-aware.
Body: A Master’s Degree in Occupational Therapy & Certified Personal Training Certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine
This knowledge has allowed me to work in the medical field since 2001 with a variety of medical conditions, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, scoliosis, osteoporosis, diabetes, fibromyalgia, high/low blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, Parkinson’s disease, fractures, head injuries, spinal pain, injuries, and surgeries.
This experience has also given me insight into preventing these conditions and achieving wellness, quality of life, and goal achievement in my clients.
Spirit: Medical Therapeutic Yoga (MTY) studies at the Professional Yoga Therapy Institute (PYTI) in 2016.
After experiencing the transformational benefits of yoga in myself and witnessing it in others, it has led me to a more holistic approach to health and wellness.
