I have volunteered for years in the area of Buddhist Recovery, working with Worldwide Insight, Eight Step Recovery, Refuge Recovery, Northwest Buddhist Recovery and other organizations. I work as a Dana, or donation based, Coach and Religious and Cult Trauma Specialist for Building Connected Communities, and am so excited to be a part of WU! I also know much about grief and loss and hospice and end-of-life care, as well as having had a number of near death experiences myself. I have facilitated the creation of many different types of support groups throughout the world. I also do Network Marketing for the great products Isagenix provides and am getting into real estate brokerage specifically geared towards Veterans. I am a certified Early Intervention Field Traumatologist and Community Trauma Resources Advocate completing my continuing education to become a Clinic Traumatologist. I am an activist in many areas including that of civil rights and the LGBT community. I was raised in the cult of Jehovah's Witnesses and am currently working on a memoir about my life.
