An event in 1999 finally jolted me into taking a closer look at who I am and what I am doing and to find some answers. Oh, yes… and to somehow laugh and cry along the way. This led to the opening of Friday Wellness Center in 2005, continuing my business as Friday Wellness and the recent opening of Starlight Ridge Retreat Center.
For many years I have studied nutrition, physical health and wellness techniques, relaxation, mental and emotional balancing therapies, spiritual practices and philosophies and healthy relationships. The practice of all of these have allowed me to live a more vibrant, healthy, fulfilling and satisfying life.
I remember even at a young age I was drawn to give counsel, help and advice…. even sometimes when it wasn’t appreciated. I have grown wiser and have been blessed with many, many experiences. I now feel that giving counsel and offering advice to others that improves their quality of life is one of my main purposes in life.
One of the many lessons learned the “hard way” is to wait until I am asked for advice before giving it. MOST of the time I can do that…even with my daughter. I feel that is quite an accomplishment.
My credentials include: ordained minister, certified yoga teacher, certified Transpersonal Hypnotherapist and many other certifications and training in a number of emotional, mental, physical and spiritual therapies, practices, techniques and modalities.
I am a member of the International Kundalini Yoga Teachers Association, the Yoga Alliance and NATH (National Association of Transpersonal Hypnotherapist).
