About Me…

I’ve been an occupational therapist for 40 years, and nearly half of that I’ve spent specializing in rehabilitation and lymphedema treatment with cancer patients. I’m a researcher and educator and have given presentations at conferences worldwide. In addition, I teach in the doctoral physical therapy program at the University of the Pacific. As a board-certified lymphedema therapist, I have a hospital-based outpatient clinical practice in Stockton, California, and see patients from all over the United States. This year, I am decreasing my clinic work in order to expand my private telehealth treatment and consultation practice for all types of patients, including breast cancer, lipedema, lymphedema, and general wellness. I hold a master’s degree in energy medicine and love to weave Eastern and Western medicine together in all that I do.”
