I’m a Board-Certified Nurse Coach (NC-BC) under the auspices of the American Holistic Nurses Credentialing Corporation. I also hold previous certifications in Swedish Massage, Kripalu Yoga, and Laughter Yoga. Previously, I studied the visual arts, dropping out of two Philadelphia art schools in the early 1980s.
