After abandoning my music career many years ago, I worked as an administrative assistant in a wide variety of organizations, mostly not-for-profit, for a number of years. In 2001, I decided to take a chair massage course, just for fun. I loved it! I took my chair everywhere, and just loved working as a chair massage practitioner. In fact, I loved it so much, that I started looking into working as a body worker, and eventually chose to study shiatsu.

Healthcare has been my major focus ever since. I have been a Zen Shiatsu Therapist since 2003, and also worked for a major healthcare publisher, Cochrane, for many years as well.

This month, I completed my training as a Physiotherapy/Occupational Therapy Assistant and Personal Fitness Trainer. I am excited to add a new facet to my career, and hope to continue to help people move better, feel better, and  st importantly, change how they feel.

I still enjoy making music, and currently sing with a number of different groups. I love to share my experiences and encourage others to explore choir/group singing for personal fulfillment and emotional well being.


Peace and health!
