This is probably where you will learn the most about me and I can see if you perused my website thoroughly….

Graduate from San Diego State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art 1991

Taught English in Japan 1991-1993

I completed Bill Blasco Special Effects makeup course, Hollywood, CA

I have read numerous self help books and completed human potential courses before they were a fashionable hashtag, I WISH I had discovered hypnotherapy in my twenties…

I have always loved animals and believe those who grew up on farms are the luckiest of people.

I went back to school to take additional courses in order to enter a nursing program in LA but then changed my mind, enrolled in the Rolf Guild and moved to Hawaii.

I worked on a yacht which led me to working at a Sports Fishing Resort in Waterfall, Alaska for three summer season.

I love reading.
