For more than 25 years my professional career as an entrepreneur and communications expert, as well as my personal healing journey have sown the seeds for my mission to inspire conversations designed to support personal and system transformation in the healthcare setting.
My lifelong advocacy of healthy living was shaped when I walked out of a Houston, Texas hospital changed forever in 1985. While recuperating from a life-threatening vascular event and near-death experience I was told I'd probably never walk again; however, I surprised my doctors when I did just that a few weeks later.
Aligning my rehabilitation efforts with an unyielding personal intention empowered me to continuously transform my life in spite of chronic daily pain and the myriad health effects of both incomplete spinal cord injury and hospital-based trauma.
The credit for my dramatic healing goes to the integration of my intuitive guidance and very early use of Energy Medicine - before "energy medicine" was really a term - with my ability to source and connect with the best that medical science had to offer.
My approach at comprehensive medical care wasn't easy in the 1980's. Surprisingly it's not gotten a lot easier almost 3 decades later to find and effect comprehensive, interconnected care across the divide between conventional and complementary paths in medicine.
An early adopter of digital technology I was one of a small group of media professionals invited to use AOL long before the public dawn of the internet. I've been collaborating with the country's leading thinkers in wellness and human development since the days I called into digital bulletin boards and CompuServe forums to communicate with people such as Jean Houston and her husband, the late Robert Masters. So I value technology immensely. My ability to remain tech-savvy now depends on balancing the role that technology plays in my life with mindfulness and self-care.
In my coaching practice, in public speaking appearances, and in workshops I now help others to lead their own health outcomes and use common sense tools in a program that combines the best of spiritual wisdom and science.
I do this by sharing the tools I used in partnership with conventional medicine to walk again, heal PTSD, manage chronic pain, and raise 4 children as a single mother all while enjoying a successful career as a consultant and serial entrepreneur.
