“I believe in a balanced approach to everything. I am not afraid to tackle the hard stuff. I don’t fear details or boatloads of information. Give me what you have. I’ll narrow it down, sort it out and give it back to you neatly packaged up; consumable and actionable for all levels.”
I've recently developed a blog and companion book on balanced living and wholistic healing. I look forward to sharing my journey to health, wholeness and happiness. What an amazing process!
