My acupressure journey began as an inspiration, evolved to a seed, then a decision. A knowing to be made manifest, a path to share with others, ultimately to be harvested as a deeply fulfilling satisfaction. It has been a path to wholeness.

Growing up outdoors, a part of the elements, on the back of a horse, I felt in close rapport with nature. I knew my connection with nature was my life.

I began my studies at the Acupressure Institute of America in Berkeley, California, graduating in 1991. Mirroring my spiritual development was the study of the Spirit of the Points themselves, allowing completion of Spiritual Dimensions of Healing in 1992. Embodying nature within became my focus. I continued my education at the Acupressure Institute, receiving a diploma in Emotional Balancing in 1994.

My Acupressure journey continued with Chinese Medicine Five Element focus becoming my passion. Seasonal workshops connecting each season and its element became my practice.


In September 2005 I attended the SOPHIA Intensive at the Tai Sophia Institute* in Maryland. This programís focus is becoming the needle: learning to create movement and balance through oneís very own presence or being.

My education continues with Sacred Intuitive Healing, further studies in the sacredness of our relationship with the elements in Nature; a Shamanic approach to Energywork; and Certification in Equine Acupressure and Small Animal Acupressure, at  the Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute. As of August 2009, I am certified with the National Board of Certification for Animal Acupressure and Massage. As of October 2010, I am certified through Tallgrass for Small Animal Acupressure, and Board Certified for Equine and Canine Acupressure with NBCAAM. I look forward to further educational opportunities, to keep my skills fresh and up to date, to serve my clients, whether two-legged or four, to the best of my ability.

Acupressure is truly the beacon through which my light shines.
