My MANIFESTO: "Serve, Show up, Share and Shine!"


SOUL-dier: Author – Art-ivist – Army Officer - Yogini


The embodiment and practice of Yoga is my Body Prayer that is the Divine connection/medium that bridges being in the world but not of it.

Yoga grounds and heals me; it informs my life on how I live and share its gift.

Yoga provided me the courage to pen and publish my inspirational war memoir B.A.G.H.D.A.D. Yoga A Shift in Consciousness: Fear to Love, War to Peace, after serving almost a year in combat during Operation Iraqi Freedom. I have been SERVING our country for over 30 years as an Army Medical Service Corps Lieutenant Colonel assigned to the Office of The Surgeon General in Falls Church, VA.

In my book, I share powerful synchronistic spiritual principles and mind-body practices to empower self/others and cope with dis-ease and stress— whatever and WHEREVER the war. I am a champion for alternative methods of healing with integrative holistic “InSpirited” wellness.

A Lightworker, an avid Outdoorist, Flexitarian Foodie, Prince music lover, A Course in Miracles Student; I thrive at building solid relationships and cultivating peaceful communities with integrity for a world that works for Everybody…Being a force for GoOD!
