Hailing from England and raised in Los Angeles I had an eclectic upbringing with my mad scientist inventor grandfather in England to the rock-and-roll royalty that flooded our home in Laurel Canyon where I spent my formative years. These origins sparked my passion for creative design, my ease at being at home with the most creative minds and my deep need to inspire others.
My early career included working as a broadcast agency producer for the top agency in Los Angeles and starting my own boutique interior design firm.
After experiencing a family trauma I headed back to college in my 40’s to understand addiction, substance abuse, mental health and trauma.
10 years later with a passion for learning I earned my
- CADAC II,
- Somatic Experiencing Trauma Healing (SEP) cert.
- Certified Trauma Practitioner MOD IIIII
, became a
- Conscious Partnership & Family Coach
- Certified Grief Counselor
- Certified Nonviolent Parent Educator
- an Autism IEP Advocate.
… and I also learned to surf.
