I have been teaching much of my life, since tutoring math in high school. As a former massage therapist and acupressure technician, I have continued to search for ways to empower others on their healing journeys. In 2011, I discovered and began studying in EFT - Emotional Freedom Techniques - which has been called "Acupressure for emotions". I completed my EFT Certification as an EFT Practitioner-1 through EFT Universe in February 2014. I am a recent stroke survivor who used EFT to work with the grief from the losses I suffered from the stroke. I have a BA from St. Catherine's University and post baccalaureate work in Secondary Education from the University of Minnesota. I have also taught EFT to students at a Twin Cities sober high school and to stroke survivors at Regions Hospital.
