I began practicing HT as a volunteer in 2003 at the Charlotte Maxwell Complementary Clinic, Oakland CA. I was certified as a Practitioner in 2008 and expanded my volunteer work to Hope Hospice, Dublin CA in 2009. In 2010 I completed instructor training and became a Certified Healing Touch Instructor. Additionally, I have taken courses in Energy Medicine and HT for animals. I have given presentations on HT at local hospitals, clinics, and conferences, including a breakout session entitled "The Biology Behind Healing Touch" at the 2011 Healing Touch Worldwide Conference. I joined the Healing Touch Professional Association (HTPA) as a charter member in 2008. I am also contributor the HT Level 2 notebook. In November 2014 I became a board member of Healing Touch Worldwide Foundation, and served as chair of the Grant Awards Committee until 2017, and continue to serve as a grant reviewer. Practitioner certification through the Healing Touch Program is nationally accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies(NCCA) in Washington D.C.
I completed training in biology with an undergraduate degree from Southampton College of Long Island University (B.A.), an M.S.P.H. in Parasitology from the School of Public Health, University of North Carolina, and a Ph.D. in Medical Microbiology from the College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Georgia. Upon completion of my graduate research, I was inducted into Gamma Sigma Delta, The Honor Society of Agriculture, and was granted a US Patent on my doctoral research. I have been teaching medical microbiology at the university level over 25 years. In 1993 I received a grant from the Belgian National Science Foundation and spent 6 months at the University of Ghent conducting research. In 2000, I was chosen as a Fulbright Scholar and spent 6 months teaching in Poland at the University of Warmia and Mazury. In June 2011, I was invited back to Poland to teach Medical Microbiology funded by a grant from the EU. As part of my scientific career, I have spoken in many countries including Ireland, Belgium, France, Poland, Spain, Ecuador, Honduras, Panama, and Mexico. As a volunteer member of Los Medicos Voladores (Flying Doctors), I accompanied the medical mission to Guatemala in August 2009. Until retiring, I taught students majoring in nursing, biology, and medical technology at California State University, Eastbay, where I was nominated as Outstanding Professor for the academic year 2006-07. I am currently practicing and teaching in Westhampton, Long Island NY.
