Prior to taking a full time academic position, I was a yoga teacher and heavily into spirituality, wellness and holistic health. All of which helped me to survive a truly brutal work situation. NOW taking these varied experiences and putting them at your service, to make your life less stressful is my mission.  By making your life more peaceful, and you less stressed with Namaste Concierge we can have a positive impact on all the people who you interact with daily.


The daily intuitive reading I’d just pulled for myself said: you have knowledge that can help others through teaching, writing or speaking and that is your mission. It stressed that sharing my story would help me and others to heal;  so I did.  This covers the time right after leaving academia and homelessness- (read in story form published at Elephant Journal, (an online yoga/lifestyle journal) part 1 and Pt. 2 The Icestorm,)
