My background and experience comes from my own personal experience. After a car accident in my early twenties, I spent many years in and out of a hospital, experiencing one set back after another. After 14 operations which spanned the last 25 years of my life, I clearly understand how physical and emotional pain and discomfort is both mentally and physically debilitating. During my recovery process, I underwent a transformation that connected me to a healing process. Through extensive training, I developed a greater understanding and practice of resiliency; by building grit, empathy, perseverance, optimism, purpose and happiness. I have worked with a diverse population with many individuals making life and behavior changes as well as nurses, physicians and healthcare staff.
