I have been in The Arts all my life, graduating with a degree in Marketing and Art History with a focus on Egyptian and African art. I worked as a freelance graphic designer and then 12 years worked in new product design and international management in the leather industry. Through business I traveled and experienced local cultures, “alternative” medicine & therapies, foods & spiritual beliefs. As a result I became a competitive athlete in volley ball and Muay Thai overseas and in the US became a personal trainer focusing on people recovering from injuries or living with chronic illness. I worked in NY hospitals, as part of studies merging traditional and alternative treatments to treat the patient and caregiver before, during and after care using yoga therapy, meditation, aromatherapy and Reiki. I continue with this work in nonprofits, in my own business and teach classes in NY & NJ on Stress, Panic & Anxiety, Nutrition and Patient Navigation. I utilize this in the developmentally disabled community which I have been involved with all my life because it is a big part of my family. I understand the behaviors, family dynamics, available programs, application processes and the patience needed. I'm interested in understanding how things work and as a result I have learned a great deal in my life. People are always amazed at what I know how to do and my ability and patience to teach others how to do it. I saw this sight and thought it would be a great opportunity to offer what I know to anyone who could use it. I will gladly supply you with recommendations and below is a list of things I am educated and experienced in: teaching and working with the developmentally disabled, photography, art history, finishing systems, color theories, yoga the whole picture and therapeutic benefits, somatic movement, reiki, pranayama, nutrition, Photoshop, Excel, Powerpoint, Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. Thank You!

I am a former athlete in volleyball and Muai Thai. I have studied clinical theories of anatomy and physiology as well as "complementary" medicines and therapies and have years of experience adapting it to real bodies. I am certified in personal training, 500hr Yoga Therapy, nutrition, cranial sacral, fascia release, reiki master. I work with people to fine tune their athletic performance or help them cope with injury and chronic illness.

Martial Arts

I was trained and competitive in Muay Thai in South America. I teach it privately and in the philosophy I was taught that is a slow practice creates strength and speed. Not the other way around.

I worked as a portrait photographer and am experienced in the operation and setting of a 35mm film camera as well as digital.

Yoga

I am certified 200CYT and 500CYT in yoga therapeutics. I have used these practices in hospital and nonprofit settings tailored to the individual needs of the patient.
