I attended Houston Community College and studied issues related to wellness, stress relief, and the impact stress had upon the body. As a result of my work, I was invited to be an Honors student. This opportunity gave me great incentive to write papers and information modules on all of the issues I had a tremendous passion for. I graduated with High Honors.
The next phase of my life came while managing a wellness clinic for chronically ill patients. We offered rehab in many aspects: physical therapy, weight and exercise training, nutrition counseling, chiropractic treatment and massage therapy. I learned so much it made my head swirl! And to see all of the miraculous changes was very gratifying.
Next, I was asked to help organize a personal training team. That was so much fun! My manager/mentor taught me so much about the body, weight training and form, comprehensive stretching, and many other modalities that I use to this day.
I really enjoy being a Master Reiki Teacher. I have worked on many clients with a full spectrum of issues. It is so wonderful to relax in a Reiki session, allowing the Chi (universal) energy to work its magic.
I also like working on clients’ trigger points to relief stress and encourage healing. The physical, spiritual and emotional aspects of our lives are so intrinsically intertwined.
As a personal trainer (for 18 years!), I am able to teach correct form, stretching, lifting. I often work with people who have never lifted a weight in their life. I feel so grateful to be able to take the intimidation out of the process. My clients are trained to keep it simple and focused.
