In addition to earning a Master’s Degree in International Public Health, I have extensive international business experience including serving as Director of Training and Development, Global Marketing Manager, Global Marketing Communications Manager with two of the world’s largest Corporations – in their innovation and entrepreneurial teams- and a fast paced start-up software company, in addition to managing director roles in private international sustainable development organizations and consulting engagements with indigenous communities across the USA to create programs for health promotion and leadership development.
Since childhood I have known I was here to serve humanity as a healer, artist, leader. I found my way to ancient Chinese wisdom growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area – in the 60s I didn’t know the healing arts of Asia were not yet well known everywhere. I just knew they felt like home to me. The tai chi symbol, representing balance and harmony ever changing (also known as the yin/yang symbol) felt like a part of my being. I have studied many ancient wisdom traditions, lived with and studied with Tao masters on 4 contents including while living in the People’s Republic of China in the 1980s. Since then I have trained participants on 5 continents and certified more than 500 tai chi instructors making tai chi more accessible (local and free of ego/safe and effective for the participant).
