“For as long as I can remember, I've had a passion for leading transformation, creating connection, and driving innovation.
I started working with spas in 1987. Through the years I grew to understand the impact that health and wellness can have on people, communities, and the world we live in.
I spent three decades developing spas and wellness programs for hotels and resorts around the world and began to recognize that every business can and should have a wellness identity.
Today my mission is to help businesses of all types join the global movement toward health and wellness.”
