My passions are twofold: (1) the power of dance to inspire, uplift and heal; and (2) transforming the culture of care for people with dementia through dance and embodied caregiving.

Biography

My passions are twofold: (1) advocating for the field of dance/movement therapy; and (2) transforming the culture of care for people with dementia through dance and embodied caregiving. To motivate people, particularly those with dementia, to interact, I created the Octaband®, a tool for therapists and teachers to foster a sense of connection through movement.

I love dance as everyday self-expression. My family and I dance to the sound of chopping tuna fish in a bowl.

In addition to loving dance and dance/movement therapy, I love spending time with my family and friends, my cats, Fifi and Theo, and reading.
