Teacher Turned Tai Chi 

I left my position as a first grade teacher in a public school in New York years ago after deciding I wanted to help reach more people with a message of calmness and balance. For 27 years I've been a Speaker and Tai Chi Instructor, helping people to stress less and create more balance and joy in their lives!


Teachers are essential to our society's future

My path was inspired by a teacher who believed in me before I could. She provided the encouragement to reach for what I thought was impossible which lead to my undergraduate work in IT and healthcare. As a paramedic of ground rescue, flight, & tactical medicine I've seen my share of stressful situations. As an IT strategist, I'm looking to give back to a field that is critical to the future of our society by helping educators learn from top experts in this virtual venue.
