I fell in love with Hawaii on my first trip here in 1988 and visited many times before finally moving here to stay in 2007 and buying some raw lava land to build my home on it. I particularly love living on the lava because I like wide open spaces where you can see for miles. I feel an expanded state of mind in this environment. Being so near an active volcano where the goddess Pele resides, there is a strong energy of transformation which can support whatever sort of healing, shift, or release is needed in your life. Outside of work, my activities include meditation, yoga, hiking, dancing, and swimming. I have been a vegetarian since age 22 and am now 54.
