I was born and raised in Southern California. I have been living in Oceanside California for the past five years. I am retired after owing a Dental Laboratory for 27 years in Lake Havasu City Arizona, fabricating crowns and bridges, working with a small number of quality-oriented dentists. I decided to change careers when I realized a passion for working with people. I returned to California where I attended college as a student of Mira Costa College and just received my AA degree in Liberal Arts. While attending college I worked in an internship at Palomar Hospital where I confirmed my passion for health care. I have been attending the Feldenkrais Practitioner Training in San Diego for the past year. My hobbies include many outdoor sports that include: long distance road biking, outrigger canoeing, hiking, bird watching with the Auduban Society. I also love reading and cooking.
