As both an oncology nurse and a yoga teacher certified at the 500-hour level, I love helping others help themselves.
In the hospital, I served as a bridge between doctors and their patients. I translated what can be confusing or overwhelming information into accessible and useful tools for patients and their families or caregivers. In the yoga studio, I give my students clear instruction to help them feel empowered in their bodies and their lives. Having published my own research on mindfulness with patients who have specific cancers, I I have since presented this research nationally and taught concepts of mindfulness throughout the hospital. These concepts are immediately applicable and infinitely expandable.
With an extensive education in Western medicine and anatomy, plus training in Ayurveda, Reiki, meditation and other Eastern modalities, I can help you address physical, mental, and emotional concerns with simple and clear plans for action.
I am currently studying with the Conscious Dying Institute to be a death doula and end of life coach. The concepts I am learning address issues that are pertinent to all and focus not just on dying well, but dying well. I hope to guide others to come to an understanding of what they truly value and want out of life.
