Growing up in Colorado and California, raised by my lovely mother and father who embraced concepts like the organic food movement, growing your own food and herbal medicine, I have been immersed in a conscious wellness concept since birth. This instilled driven characteristics from birth to a more spiritually inclined nature. With horses as a hobby and passion for the first stage of my life in assisted in the growth of unifying the mind, body and spirit.
Graduating with a degree in Financial Services and Corporate Finance from San Francisco State University, there was always an interest in the healing arts, and my studies furthered with courses on Auyervedic medicine and holistic health. During my college years I competed and taught beginner classes in saber fencing, while holding a position on the board as the Vice President of the United States Fencing Association, Northern California Division. With an array of interests I also participated in production work and the performing arts, including volunteer work with the Haight Ashbury Street Fair.
In 2010 I began studying tai chi and qi gong with Master Yun Xiang Tseng (Wu Dang Chen) in San Francisco. Then, in 2012 my journey returned me back to Colorado to assist Master Wu Dang Chen in running the retreat center, Dao House. Still continuing to study and practice, and as a certified Qi Gong Instructor, I continue to support the vision and community within Daoism and what all it encompasses. With a passion in assisting others gain their optimum potential and return to a comfortable state of health, this is the perfect setting where Daoism can grow and alternative wellness practices can be shared, which is essential to the betterment of our lives.
