Trained in the social sciences and digital media, I worked for almost three decades in academia and as a freelance business consultant. My personal version of the dark night of the soul brought me to the shamanic path. Initiated and trained by Dr. Alberto Villoldo, Marcela Lobos, and shamans of the Q’ero nation of the high Peruvian Andes, I now share my medicine with the world as a modern day shaman. I run my own healing practice and I am a faculty member with the Four Winds Society, guiding groups through the medicine wheel and the Rites of the Munay-Ki. As a Founding Member of Shamans Directory I look forward to bringing the beauty of shamanic wisdom to children and being a part of weaving a sacred web of healing around the earth.
