A graduate of The University of RI, BFA Art/Art History(1970) and Salve Regina University,MA Holistic Counseling/Expressive Arts (1997), I have led a varied career as and artist, teacher, healer, author, non-denominational celebrant, professional psychic and actor (not necessarily in that order. I am the author of "Holistic Tarot: Soul map for a New Paradigm" (available on Amazon).Presently I am self employed and have international clients who consult with me by phone or in person and offer holistic integrative healing at Northern Lights Holistic in Portsmouth, RI and GATHER APOTHECARY BAR in Newport, RI. I am certified in a variety of techniques including Certified Labyrinth Facilitator, Reiki Master and Body talk.
I spent 3 years as a Customs Inspector in Bermuda before joining LaChance Advertising in Providence as assistant art director(4 yrs), 3 yrs with Northern Lights Films, Boston as Broadcast Manager. A Program Director (3 yrs) at Edward King House Senior Center in Newport led to an enduring interest in working with the elderly and disabled, both as an Activities Mentor for Tockwotton's Memory Care Unit and offering Personal Care and staff management for a Private client in Newport RI
and with Looking Upwards.
Somewhere in the mix I home schooled my three amazingly gifted children; Peter (recently married) is an elementary art teacher in Texas; Andrew has worked for the American Council for Education in D.C. for 8 years since his graduation from University of Chicago and Rhiannon who is an accomplished self employed artist and actor, resides in New Hampshire. And,made connections with The MET School in Providence (where my kids spent their high school experiences). Ultimately I had an opportunity to develop and Direct an innovative program for the MET. it's purpose was to encourage drop outs to return to school, complete their education and be trained for jobs. In two years we graduated 15 students out of a pool of 31, and placed the rest , either in jobs or continued education before the program was canceled due to budget cuts.
My interest in integrative health continued almost non-stop. I studied Shamanism with Michael Harner, Felisitas Goodman and spent almost 10 years apprenticed to Native American teacher, Oh Shinnah Fast-Wolf. I taught Holistic techniques to fibromyalgia patients at Newport Hospital for 3 yrs under the auspices of the Arthritis Association.
Just for fun I did a stint as a tour guide for The Preservation Society of Newport Co. and for 8 years acted for Marley Bridges Theater Company's Newport Murder Mysteries, which are experiential who-done-its with a period theme...where you may find me reprising my role as Alva Vanderbilt.
