For the past 10 years I have been active as an advocate for Alternative Health Therapies. As the author of a soon to be published book on Essential Oils and Aromatherapy, I have been delving into the upstate New York fields of therapeutic Essential Oils for over 8 years.

I also am an avid practitioner of Ashtanga Hatha Yoga. I love travelling and photography and have been to India 4 times. I'm also working on a website for my photos.
