Post Career Highlights
I grew up in a small country town in northern NJ. My twin sister and I started snow skiing at 3 and swimming at 6 years of age.Competitive swimming took up most of my time, but softball, skiing, football and any other sport would suffice. I swam for Cal under Moe Thornton and then found Rugby. I was President of my sorority and Rugby club.Voted into Leadership by the Chancellor. I played rugby for 12 years with multiple MVP tournaments. Two most memorable sports moments : winning Rugby Nationals for the first time (in my 10th year) and playing in Japan's venerable Hanazano Rugby Stadium. We were the first women to ever play there - it was 1996.
When I settled in Lafayette, CA, I coached my kids’ soccer, baseball and football teams and still play soccer today. Our family has always used eastern medicine practices to stay healthy, even though I sold western medicine. I was a consultant to surgeons in the OR. My focus was spine surgery, orthopedics, osteoporosis and oncology. In 2011 I started my own Pain Management Distributorship and in 2015, found cannabis. I started Green Alley to offer my community safe CBD Hemp products. I integrate other holistic supplements and practices to jumpstart this Endocannabinoid System that absorbs and actually produces CBD. I give talks on how we can boost our Immune System, increase our athletic performance and recovery, and even offset injury by feeding the Endocannabinoid System CBD, Omega 3s and more. It is an honor for me to serve my community in this unique way and to shed light on ancient ways of healing.
