Life is a journey. We never learn all there is to learn, we never fully arrive. Our desires and passions and interests push us to new levels of education and experience.
I fell in love with essential oils in 2005 when a friend introduced me to them. I am extremely grateful for that time because I found that information was what was missing from my life. It greatly improved my personal life as well as my clients. That excitement led me to reconnect with Andrea Butje, which led to Rhiannon Lewis; which leads me here today.
I am excited to share and network and build a group of aromatherapists to open ways of discussion and help others along the way. I have 22 years’ experience as a Physical Therapist Asst, 18 years as a licensed massage therapist; and 8 years a certified holistic aromatherapist. In addition my experience includes 30 years as a certified personal trainer and aerobics instructor (retired). I still continue training and teaching the martial arts; 5th degree black belt: Sensei. My blending seems to be most for this population! I recently added yoga and Qi-Gong to the mix.
I am looking forward to supporting the AIA through networking and all the education and potential that lie ahead for us. I would like to bring to the AIA community all that I have learned and excited to share with others all of our combined skill and knowledge. It is humbling to be in an arena with such profound minds and leaders in the aromatherapy field from all over the world!
I think if we work together with honesty and integrity, and being confident in our skills and knowledge; we can change the industry. We can reach out to those who don’t know what we do in a positive and professional manner. We have each other and many great leaders and research to support what we do. Let’s Move ahead in 2014 with a positive outlook.
