After discharge from the US Navy in 1982 as a medic I became an RN and worked in a wide variety of settings including traumatic brain injury and spinal cord rehabilitation. In the early 1990s I married and moved to Washington State where we began buying and selling single family homes.
In four years we closed on more than 60 transactions. This prompted my first book titled, The Streetsmart Homebuyer. I’ve published many books since and continue to write today.
In 2005 I was diagnosed with base of tongue cancer. Doctors felt certain they could save me, though the path for the radiation would destroy my taste buds and saliva glands. During treatment I visualized a mint green igloo attached to my neck and shoulders. This metaphysical prop allowed only healing radiation into my body and not harmful radiation.
Two weeks post treatment I had 20 percent of my taste and saliva back. The doctors were amazed. A year later my taste buds and saliva glands were fully functional. It was the visualization and firm belief in a positive outcome that made the difference. It was this experience that put me on the path of learning. And what a wonderful trip it has been as I have found true joy as a student of spiritual and metaphysical topics. In addition to writing I’m working on a project that will use virtual reality programs to deliver the visualizations that were so important to my own healing.
