A life long learner, I continually upgrade my skill set, my knowledge, both practical and esoteric. It’s fun!

Of 61 BodyTalk Trainings attended, I took 27 from BodyTalk founder Dr. John Veltheim, six of those in person. I have maintained my status as a Certified BodyTalk Practitioner since 2008. (Check The BodyTalk website for current Montana CBPs).

Most of my Ortho-Bionomy coursework has been completed with first-generation instructors who studied with the founder, Dr. Arthur Lincoln Pauls (deceased). I studied Craniosacral Fascial Therapy with its founder, Dr. Barry Gillespie, and trained in life coaching with the founder of the coaching process, Thomas Leonard, when he was still alive.

Staying up to date with coursework, assures I offer state of the art BodyMind Spirit Healthcare.

Here are a few specific recent trainings.

Before that? As a kid obsessed with the Beatles in the San Francisco Bay area, my dad took me to see them in their last concert at Candlestick Park. I wove yarn belts and retailed them; folk danced at Stanford University; and wrote in a journal almost daily. I lived in Cuernavaca Mexico for a month and spoke fluent Spanish.

I wanted to be Joni Mitchell, so I taught guitar. I was also the family go-to for baking desserts. I worked on an archeological dig and on the Save the Bay Campaign; drove a VW Beetle through the Pacific Coast Range; and discovered the joy of backpacking (my parents were confused because, as a child, I wanted to be carried whenever on family hikes [though to be fair, sitting up on my Dad’s shoulders was pretty nifty]).

I loved and love the mountains.

Living life. Finding my way. Still doing that.
