How I Began and Where I Am Now
The first thing I remember wanting to be as a child was a healer. I was fascinated by the human body and health, leading me to obtain my B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from USC. There, I learned conventional knowledge of physical health, disease and medicine. But the more I learned, the more I was in awe of our body’s innate intelligence and ability to heal.
I spent over a decade in the biopharmaceutical industry, including 5+ years focusing on behavioral psychology for treatment adherence. Even within the world of western medicine, science was showing that the mind - thoughts and beliefs - were essential to health outcomes on the physical level.
In 2015, despite generally good physical health and a successful career, I was suffering from a mysterious shoulder pain that no doctor could help me with. I discovered Reiki and completely healed my shoulder pain after 3 sessions. Thus began my journey into complementary and alternative medicine and spiritual healing practices.
I am now a certified Reiki Master Teacher of Usui Reiki (Levels 1, 2, 3, and 4). I am completing my Masters in Clinical Psychology - Spirituality Mind and Body, at Columbia University. A mystic at heart, I've studied astrology under Debra Silverman, and Kabbalah under the Bergs at the Kabbalah Centre.
