A lifelong professional dance artist and Founding Member of PhysicalMind Institute, I have concentrated my attention on teaching Pilates Fundamentals (informed by Eve Gentry), Mat and Reformer Work (using Kinesiology and Ideokinesis frameworks, informed by Karen Clippinger and Pamela Matt ). Also, I am a Somatic Educator--The Swan Practice©--teaching all of the above in my private studio, The Lighthouse/Studio 5 O 2 (pre-COVID). Formerly the Director of Dance at the University of Nevada, Reno, as a scholar of poetic perception with my doctorate degree in Comparative Mythology, I am a Lecturer in Core Humanities at the University of Nevada, Reno, and a Public Lecturer. I am currently edting my book on the Pilates work.
