Have you ever sat down and really thought about how you got to this point in your life? It's quite the exercise and I highly recommend it for everyone!
When I set out to do this bio, I struggled to decide - what about me is important to the message I'm sharing here? Why would anybody care about what I have to say, on this website, or in the information I share in my books or through my courses?
My journey has been filled with twists and turns, something I think most of us can relate to. I started out in the legal profession, then moved to writing and into the television and movie industries. It was fun and exciting, but ... fulfilling? Not really.
But in 1992, I had a life-changing experience and was given a dream in which I played a harp. It was then, finally, that I began to hone in on my life’s purpose.
As a result, for the last nearly three decades, I have nurtured the gift of music, with my harp and vibroacoustic therapy, and shared its power through programs and coaching.
When my Mom was diagnosed with dementia, a whole new dimension was added to my life, and I began to research and study this terrible disease. I became a brain health mentor and a vegan nutritionist.
The lifestyle changes that I instituted to protect my own brain in response to Mom's diagnosis became a program that I now share in my book, "Don't Let the Memories Fade" and with clients in coaching programs and classes.
My mantra, and what I hope to instill in others, is this:
"It is never too early to look after your brain, but it can become too late."
To enhance my ability to help people improve their overall health for a better brain, in 2021 I became an Amen Certified Brain Health Professional and an Amen Licensed Brain Trainer. Now, with the addition of the programs created by Dr. Amen, I am also able to help people with the mental health issues that can also lead to dementia. I am proud to be a member of The Brain Revolution.
I am also a frequent guests on radio and podcast shows. You can learn much more about brain health and my mom's story HERE.
