What I know for sure

Ultimately, YogaNursing helps us to have an experience of God…of the sacred. It invites us into the mystery that we seek and ultimately is seeking us.

This is my story — condensed into 584 words. Just a mystical slice of the Internet — one page, amongst billions. And yet, you found me. How fated is that?


Medicine, magic + how I found meaning.

This may shock you, but it’s majestically true: I’ve been practicing yoga for 53 years. I know what you’re thinking — she doesn’t look a day over 39! It’s all that meditation + sun salutations, darling. Keeps me glowing + flowing.

Here comes another shocker…hope you’re comfortably seated, in a lotus position: I began nursing school at age 48, completing the program (with honors) at age 51. Obviously, nursing wasn’t my first career — I’d twirled with fame as an actress + model, in my earlier years.

But having that precious pair of letters — RN — at the end of my name gave me everything I wanted. Namely, the power and knowledge to serve both patients and fellow nurses with greater depth + devotion.


Motherhood, madness + the dark before the light.

Back when I was just a young sprite of a girl, I gave birth to an autistic son with cerebral palsy. I couldn’t give him the care he needed, and the guilt sapped away at my soul.

Luckily, I met a few healers, teachers, saints + sinners who set me spiraling into my present-day journey. I studied Ayurvedic healing (way before it was trendy) with Deepak Chopra (way before he was famous).

Through years of stretching, seeking + illuminating study, I began to find my own dharma, or purpose. Turns out, I was destined to become a medical crusader — the creator of a healing modality the world had never seen. YogaNursing is my legacy. But I had to walk with pain, to find it.


Big plans. Hot books. And sweet lil’ Beaufort.

As I stride into my seventh decade on earth, I’ve never felt younger, stronger, or more creatively active. I’ve learned that the truth is always in fashion. And I’m one seriously stylish yogini.

In addition to training + certifying legions of YogaNurses®, mentoring caregivers + healers to build stronger businesses, and speaking to audiences who want to enlighten UP, I’m the author of The Richest Woman in Babylon and Manhattan — a modern woman’s guide to lining your purse with gold, and illuminating your soul. Own it + love it!

After shaking several decades of wanderlust out of my system, I’ve settled in Beaufort, North Carolina, where the Bluegrass music is divine, the tea is mighty sweet, and the dolphins steal the show. Every time.

I’ve got big plans for my last 30 trips around the sun — like a global YogaNurse movement, rolling through universities, hospitals + cancer treatment centers in every major city — for starters. First we take Manhattan. Then we take Berlin. You know the tune.


If I hosted the most important imaginary revolutionary meeting ever, the room would include:

Ghandi, St Theresa of Avila, Martin-Luther King, Abraham Lincoln, Florence Nightingale, Deepak Chopra, Oprah and the HOLY Spirit.
