Integrative Medicine Healer
Intuitive Energy Medicine
Licensed Nurse Practitioner
As a nurse practitioner who has mastered multiple healing modalities, I have many tools to help you find the answers to better health and well-being. In addition to being a board-certified family nurse practitioner, I’m one of just 1,400 practitioners worldwide to graduate from Dr. Andrew Weil’s Integrative Medicine Fellowship.
With 3 decades of professional nursing experience in a variety of settings, I have seen many health issues become chronic. I knew intuitively that there was so much more that could be done. I started to learn about Integrative Medicine, a cooperative, healing-oriented approach to medicine that takes account of the whole person, including body, mind, spirit and lifestyle, and makes use of all appropriate therapies, both conventional and alternative.
Through changing the focus of my practice and further formal education through the Integrative Medicine Fellowship at University of Arizona, I found my true passion. It was through the Fellowship I was first introduced to Energy Medicine, a powerful combination of all the skills I have learned in my life. Using Integrative Medicine and Energy Medicine, I often see transformative changes with employing simple changes and dynamic techniques.
When I’m not helping people to transform their health and their lives, you will find me hiking, cross-country skiing, bicycling, yoga, traveling, reading, and gardening. Although I grew up in Central Oregon, I spent many years traveling as a military wife with my family—most recently residing in Alaska—before returning to my roots. I am eager to continue connecting with my new home and to begin my work in this exciting area.
