Judy's years of management, leadership, executive training and development and career coaching in the corporate arena, combined with her life-long interest and studies of alternative medicine with indigenous medicine people from around the world uniquely qualify her to elicit a deep serenity, lasting transformative changes, and inspired living from all who choose to work with her.
"In addition to having a normal life and a successful corporate career, I am a spiritual seeker. This has led me on the most exciting adventures imaginable!
Over the course of many years I've been on silent solitary journeys to Guatemala, led groups deep into the mountains of Peru, been called to the depths of the Amazon Jungle in Ecuador, and made numerous trips alone and leading Vision Quests to spiritual mecca's in the Southeast such as Sedona, AZ.
During each one of these journeys I have had the honor and privilege of working, studying and sharing ceremonies with amazing medicine men, powerful shaman, and world renown spiritual teachers. But guess what...after all of the mountains I've climbed, transformational work I've done. processes I've learned and taught, ceremonies I've performed and certifications I've earned...
I discovered that all of the answers are were right here inside of me all the time. But I also realize that most of us need assistance in accessing the wisdom and power that live within us. It would be my great honor to offer that assistance to you."
