My deepest gratitude goes to all my teachers, inner spiritual and outer, for God’s inspiration, for guiding me, protecting my travels, bringing resources and opportunities to me which helped me to follow my life work through the arts and healing. I have been drawn to all things of natural healing, nature, & animals. I am dedicated to service to the world. I honor, also, all those who are brave enough to follow their hearts and live their life according to inner vision, and finding and living their true self.

She is an independent researcher in “prescriptive sound” or music medicine (see article under”articles” page) and a storyteller with harp,(see UTube in “articles” page), stories from indigeneous cultures.
Travel and learning of other cultures has been of great interest and led her to Bali, Ireland, Greece and India for special music learning and also teaching courses.
Other favourites are snorkling in warm oceans, playing improvisational music with other musicians and hiking in the mountains in the North and Southwest.
