The experiences that contributed to my life to feel whole and creative occurred initially within the context of my own family and community.  I experienced my family's loving care, the teachings of Naturopathic Medicine, and genuine friendship and connection with community.  We share traditional teachings from oral traditions, traditional ways of life and philosophies, celebrations for Mother Earth, storytelling and the arts.  This is the reasons why  I've chosen the life long studies and practice of Traditional Naturopathic Medicine, Healing Philosophies and the Fine Arts.  In 1992  I integrated Jin Shin Jyutsu into my practice.

1986 Art for All School  Founder.  Artist Educator  Workshops for children and teachers Meditation, Nutrition & Art

I  also volunteer to teach JSJ Self-Help in libraries, health centers and clinics, colleges, schools, art galleries and art museums.
