Many of my friends, business acquaintances and clients know I’m a 5-time cancer survivor, but only my family and closest friends know the whole story. My experiences and battles with the “C word” forever changed, not only who I am, but also changed the trajectory of my life. The reason that I am so passionate about helping others heal is because of my own journey and it’s what ultimately led me to opening Sagewood Wellness Center, and founding the Cancer Support and Education Program.

As a Neuromuscular Therapist, I get to know my clients really well. Through many years of working with my clients at Sagewood Wellness Center, and my training in clinical psychology, I became aware of the fact that oftentimes, their physical condition was a result of something deeper.

As a health practitioner for over 25 years, and a five-time cancer survivor myself, you could say I have an intimate relationship with pain and more importantly, pain relief and healing.
