I am the curator of this eclectic and holistic blog. You can gather a bit about me through my writing and the variety of topics I post, but to give you a better idea about my credentials and areas of interest, I have created this page.
I hold a bachelor’s degree in English and Spanish with an Asian studies concentration. This aspect of my learning highlights my love for communication, writing and the wisdom of culturally diverse communities. I have a master’s degree in Holistic Health Studies, where I focused my thesis on the importance of self-study and inner work and how that relates to our health and how we engage ourselves as effective healers and leaders in the world.
I engage myself with the world in many ways and am a lifelong learner. I am a level one certified healing touch practitioner. I studied and continue to study the Himalayan tradition of yoga for 4 years and counting, and in May of 2013 I will receive the official letters: RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher). I practice a Korean form of yoga, called Sun-Do, and I completed 40 hours of prenatal yoga training in 2012. I am a volunteer birth doula and attend up to 2 births a month at a local hospital.
I recently started working for a hospital and my primary role there is that of a wellness coach and a wellness facilitator. Stay tuned for more information there as I continue to refine myself and my focus. At some point in 2013 I also hope to launch a website that brings it all together more. I’ll keep you posted!
Beyond that, I often dream about becoming a spiritual director but in the mean time I am working on developing and walking my own spiritual path.You will see snippets of my own spiritual journey shared in this blog in hopes to inspire reflection.
Last, but not least, I am fascinated by stories and story-telling but mostly just have a strong interest in people, community and dialogue. I am here to share stories and musings about health and healing in hopes that they reach the people who seek them.
