I have always loved animals, and in my late 40’s I fulfilled a lifetime dream to learn how to ride a horse. I was hooked immediately, and was foxhunting with the Sewickley Hunt within a few years. I learned very quickly the importance of maximizing performance, but not at the expense of health and wellbeing. The horse I eventually bought had severe restriction in her neck and her motion would have been best described as moving 2 X 4’s. She led me down a new career path that has greatly expanded my medical knowledge. I graduated from Emory University, and then did graduate work at the University of Miami. I chose a career in the medical field and worked at several university hospitals. I am now retired and have transitioned to equine body work. I am a certified Masterson Method Practitioner, and am also certified in Tucker Biokinetics Technique and Level 1 diagnostics. I am enrolled in the Tallgrass School for Animal Acupressure. The addition of Magna wave and improving body energetics was a natural expansion of my body work. After all, horses are highly in tuned to their own internal energetics, and equally sensitive to external stimuli. I believe, like many others, that balancing their internal energy can be even more important than a horse’s external symptoms. (I believe the concept of Preventive and Complementary Therapy can often greatly improve the traditional Western Medicine approach.) I travel between North Palm Beach, Florida and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (snowbird).
