I am a published writer, artist and certified yoga teacher. Since 2003 I’ve been leading workshops and classes in New England for people affected by cancer and loss. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1993, and that began my ongoing exploration and sharing of healing modalities.
One of my programs is 1 in 8: The Torso Project, a hands-on healing art experience for women affected by breast cancer. It consists of workshops, exhibits and a book. Here is the link to my website 1 in 8: The Torso Project (http://www.torsoproject.org)
I also facilitate Spirit of the Written Word writing workshops for people touched by cancer, loss or addiction, as well as for the general population. Here is a link to my website Spirit of the Written Word (http://www.spiritofthewrittenword.com)
I teach gentle, adaptive yoga for people with cancer; I also teach Kripalu yoga at the Shelburne Falls Yoga Studio. I’m a certified instructor of Kripalu yoga as well as Yoga of the Heart Therapy for Cardiac and Cancer Patients. I’m an ordained energy healer, having studied at the former IM School of Healing Arts.

For 7 years I was program facilitator and Program Director for Forest Moon: Celebrating Cancer Survivorship, a small cancer support non-profit in New England. Forest Moon folded in 2013.
In the past I’ve been a print journalist, potter, teacher at an alternative high school, and for many years, a documentary and TV producer. My company produced the internationally distributed Citizens Summits, satellite link ups between audiences in the US and the former USSR with Phil Donahue and Vladimir Posner hosting in their respective countries; worked with 60 Minutes and 20/20 among others; produced programs for PBS corporate and non-profit clients; and sold the first ads on Soviet TV to Pepsi, Visa and SONY.
