Last week, I met with my mentor Chris Saade to further investigate my individual authenticity as a clinician and teacher.

He is focused on helping me discover my most authentic message from the deepest part of myself to share joyfully with the world. I have a message that perfectly represents the blend of my personal life, my family life, my professional training as a Doctor of Physical Therapy as well as the insights and discoveries I have gained through years of clinical experience and teaching.

Chris calls this ripening process – individual authenticity.


After reading Chris’ book Second Wave Spirituality, I am clear that the purpose of my work is:

  • Teaching, writing and speaking out on behalf of people with dizziness, vertigo, imbalance and unexplained repeated fall
  • Rescuing misunderstood and mismanaged dizzy patients
  • Advocating for public awareness of undiagnosed vestibular problems in older adults with chronic falls and the importance of screening the inner ear for all older adults
  • Writing and playing music that generates self-compassion, peace and hope

If the purpose of my work is in alignment with your needs and interests, please join my mailing list so I can keep you informed of what I am creating to share with you.
