The one constant thing in my life is my ever-present need to learn new things and share my expertise with others.
For example, my career path began in Hollywood working with writers, producers and directors then as a production coordinator working on such movies as Rocky II, Raging Bull and Myra Breckenridge, and then as a paralegal doing screen credits and music clearance.
Although my show business streak continues to be present in my role as a voiceover actor I moved on to other pursuits such as co-founding an electronics firm with my husband John and moving to beautiful San Diego. When we sold the firm after thirteen years, I was strongly motivated toward the area of wellness and became a clinical hypnotherapist where I wrote and produced hypnosis CD’s and downloads and taught over 400 classes in HypnoBirthing, thencreated my own EZ Birth class for women who want the relaxation of hypnosis but still want an epidural. I now prefer to use the process of EFT to help people release their trauma since it is much faster than hypnosis.
More recently, I have expanded my expertise to include writing Grief Comfort Guide: A Personal Journey from Loss to Light and speaking to groups about grief.
