"I live my life agelessly

I believe that we can all live with passion,  joy, vitality and health 

- at every age."

 
 

Mindfulness is such a powerful way for us to become aware and choose the life we want. It puts us in control and opens a world of limitless potential.  I love that!

" Growing up as a second generation Naturopathic Physician, healthy living has always been instinctive for me, it's a passion I want to share with everyone. I want the world to live agelessly and live without bounds!" 


I have had the incredible opportunity to learn the art and science of healthcare along with many health promoting techniques and philosophies from doctors and professionals from all over the world.  My passion for helping others achieve a "Health Full" life took me to Oregon where I studied Naturopathic Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine.  Now, as a retired Naturopathic Physician and Acupuncturist,  integrating multiple modalities to empower people to live a healthy ageless life is my passion; Qi beauty, Pilates, and Mindfulness practice allow me to share vibrant living with others. 


I am so grateful to all the clients that I saw during my career as a Naturopathic Physician and Acupuncturist. They taught me so much as they traveled their healing journeys. Through them I learned that much of our health, vitality and joy of life is directly and intimately connected to our thoughts, beliefs and our consciousness. We really do create our reality and experiences.

A lifetime of dance and movement introduced me to the Pilates Method. Pilates exemplifies the principles of healthcare that I hold dearly as well as being the most effective and gentle form of exercise that I have ever found. People regain movement and strength so quickly and safely using the Pilates Method, its wonderful to be a part of that and to share it with people.


When I met Kathy Pedersen, founder of Qi beauty, I knew that I had met a visionary. Kathy's Qi beauty method is amazing! It triggers regeneration in skin, stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, normalizes micro circulation which all works together to create youthful healthy skin. Best of all it is done without needles, peels, or fillers.  I am thrilled to share the amazing benefits of Qi beauty.
