I lived and taught in rural Alaska from 1984-2005, teaching in the communities of Noorvik, Kotzebue, and Galena before moving with my family to Fairbanks, Alaska. I began studying and practicing bodywork in 1992, and have continued to learn and broaden my understanding of the body/mind/spirit connection and healing.
I have had amazing opportunities to study with a variety of teachers over the last 30 years. This allows me the ability to customize a unique combination of tools and techniques appropriate for each client.
I believe one of my gifts is to be able to listen to you at many levels. I want to hear what you think, what language you use, what you believe, and what you want. And then I listen to your body and to your inner being. Working with you as a team, I am sometimes leading, sometimes following, and sometimes simply witnessing. My goal is to help you find balance, healing, and a joy in living.

I have worked as a certified classroom teacher and contact teacher in the public school system, and as a homeschool teacher for my own children for 19 years. I have particularly enjoyed working with children who struggle with learning or how to fit into the system. My son was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome at an early age, and I learned first-hand how to look at the world and approach learning about that world through his eyes.
