Working as a Nurse Practitioner, I provided care for premature and critically ill newborns. From the babies in the NICU, I learned to revere the miracle and resilience of the human body.
I studied dance with my mentor, Luigi Faccuito, who rehabilitated himself after a traumatic brain injury. I continue to teach the dance technique that helped him to overcome his paralysis.
Z-Health provides a platform that marries my passion for movement and my fascination with the healing potential of the nervous system. My clients range in age from four to 84 years young. They don’t come to me to be “fixed,” but rather to develop a program specific to the needs of their nervous system. Whether the challenge is to rehabilitate after an injury, eliminate pain, or enhance performance, my clients are empowered with tools and drills to help them realize their goals.
I am also a certified Pilates instructor and teach suspension exercise classes.
My favorite quote from the Z Health curriculum comes from Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais: “Make the impossible possible, the possible easy, and the easy elegant.”
