In 1995, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent several surgeries and six months of chemotherapy. It was at that low point, that she began a life-long journey to create a calm, centered joyful life, for herself and others. She began by reading everything she could get her hands on about anxiety. Then in 2006 she went back to school to earn two graduate degrees in psychology.
Over the years, she has assembled an amazing collection of tools, ideas, tips and techniques for dealing with anxiety without medication. She uses many of these tools in her own life, and is passionate about sharing them with others.
