I became a Massage Therapist in 1995, and promptly dove into the Healing Arts.
Having trained as a dancer in what now seems like another life, I know the importance of moving, and how it supports my work. Soon after starting my practice, I began training in Goju Ru Karate. Several sprained fingers and a knee problem later, I got my Brown Belt. Having gained valuable knowledge about pain and its repercussions, I quit Karate and took up Yoga.
Within the next few years I became a Reiki Sensei, a Reflexologist, and a Yoga Instructor.
In 2017 I completed the Contemplative End of Life Care Program at Toronto's Institute of Traditional Medicine, and the training at Hospice Toronto. I spent a year volunteering at Toronto's Journey Home Hospice, an end of life care facility for homeless and marginally housed people, and I work privately as a Death Doula. Another new development to my practice is providing Tarot card readings, which I've been doing for over 20 years.
I have developed and written courses for the three levels of Reiki, and Self-Care Skills courses in Chinese Acupressure, Essential Oils, and Reflexology. I taught these groups at Toronto's Sheena's Place, a support centre for people with eating disorders (2001-2014), and for stressed out staff at the Hospital for Sick Children (2004-2009).
I am an anatomy geek, a fair weather cyclist, a forever student of yoga, a periodic procrastinator, and a huge music fan.
