While I was born in Los Angeles, California, and currently call the San Francisco Bay Area home, I have traveled the world far and wide enjoying the beauty and diversity of faraway places. For seven years, I lived in Rome, Italy where I had a stained glass studio and became a connoisseur of fine pistachio gelato. I've owned a retail clothing store in LA, been a realtor in Arizona and prior to teaching Yuan Gong Qigong, taught yoga. I could say that I have always been a seeker. By the time I encountered Ren Xue and Yuan Gong, I had had so many varied life experiences and occupations that I was beginning to feel like a cat that was on the last of its nine lives. When I found Ren Xue, I felt like I had finally come home. The path of Ren Xue has led me through enormous transformation that continues today.
