“I have been fortunate to have amazing experiences throughout my career.  Nursing has afforded me the opportunity to explore how we can be truly creative in providing exceptional, individualized healthcare.  It is through the lens of Holistic Nursing, that I have been able to blend the best holistic modalities together, in order to fine-tune individual sessions and programs that help clients get to “root-cause” issues and to experience change and hope for the future.”
