Teacher, Trainer, Facilitator, Counselor and Consultant Specialist in the Healing Arts for 20 years. My professional background is as diverse as my personal history. It spans a broad spectrum of experience and has ranged from teaching children in preschool to adult continuing education. I've taught in the public school systems and for private organizations and churches. I've worked with the mentally retarded, emotionally handicapped and the terminally ill, as well as, prisoners, probationers and parolees. I've done workshops for gay teens, as well as the transgender and transsexual populations. My work has always been about helping people, especially the underdogs, those that are less fortunate, or the ones that society thinks are expendable.
