In 1997, I completed a Master of Science in Applied Psychology from St. Cloud State 
University with a special interest in self-healing.  I tried Tai Chi in 2002 but in 2012, I started to learn and practice Tai Chi and Qigong.  I noticed a significant 
difference in my health conditions along with wholistic lifestyle changes.  In 2016, I got certified to teach Tai Chi for Health and began to 
teach classes at multiple YMCA Twin Cities locations.  In 2018, I started Touching Worlds LLC to teach private lessons or group classes 
at various locations, events, and programs.  I volunteer to teach at Pathways Minneapolis and other non-profits or special events.
