A little bit about me:
Nature, camping, music and movement have been a big part of my life since I can remember. I’m an animal, plant and people lover. In 2005, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and found family, community and my three cats to be an essential support for healing. My passion is to help people live full, healthy and balanced lives as well as respect and value themselves, one another and the world we live in.
