Although I was a seasoned educator and sales rep for educational publishers, my vow of service to God changed everything in 1996. My journey from ordination to today has been one of amazing transformations and experiences integrating spiritual wisdom into the physical dimensions of my life. And, with each ministerial class I offer, I grow into fuller contact with God in ways that continue to surprise.

My ministry focuses on the LIFE4 Coaching System I developed at LIFE4 Academy. LIFE4 stands for Life Integration For Enlightenment, Equanimity, Empowerment & Enjoyment, all the elements we pursue in life. My proprietary system facilitates spiritual, mental, emotional and physical transformations easily and quickly.

My new website Alliance of Divine Life is a place for exploration, study and sharing all aspects of life. I invite you to join me.

I am a board-certified Radiologist with certifications in Integrative Functional Age-Management Medicine, I took a 3-year sabbatical from my medical practice to explore spiritual healing, travel to sacred sites in Peru, continental USA, Bali, England and Scotland and study different spiritual traditions.

My early studies of world religions and the humanities sparked a “wanting to know more vibration” that spurred my lifelong spiritual journey.

After many years of searching I found the Science of Mind philosophy and became a licensed Practitioner. I developed, and facilitated many workshops to provide tools for transformation as well as Taize services and monthly Vibrational Healing Services.

One blessed day I prayed with a lady who had recently lost her daughter. As it turned out she owned a hospice and asked me to join her Spiritual Care Team as a Chaplain!

My urge to deepen my spiritual roots continued and I was led to ADL drawn by the knowledge that LOVE is the sum of all Spiritual Laws. In 2012, I was ordained by Rev. Dr. Nancy Ash, I was conferred with my D.D.M.S in 2015 and earned my Ph.D. from New Earth Theological University in 2017.

Today, I am the Spiritual Care Coordinator and Director of Bereavement for a hospice in Reno. I am an “End of Life Educator.” perform memorial and funeral services as well as weddings, baptisms, blessings and patient specific religious and cultural rituals.

I was first ordained as a Priest of Melchizadek in 1999. For me, this was a prayer ministry. In
2012 I was ordained as an Alliance of Divine Love (ADL) minister by Reverend Charlotte
McGinnis. The two ordinations mark a distinct rite of passage in my personal journey of service
to divine love. Whereas the first ordination was a fulfilling prayer ministry, my ADL service led
me to an assisted living facility where I have served for the past 6 years as a Chaplain. I then
became a Certified Life Coach, a Spiritual Counselor, and an ADL Mentor.

I realize that being an ordained minister encompasses all that my own journey has been and more.
To me, the most important thing about being an ordained minister is in declaring to the world
“Yes, I stand for Love!” The ADL expresses this so beautifully in our mission to do, be, and
express the highest degree of love in all of our dealings.

I hold a BA in Psychology and an AS in Human Services/Addictions. There are many different
ways to serve humankind and at the same time claim our birthright to abundant prosperity as
ministers of the Alliance of Divine Love. I believe with all my heart that this planet needs more
ministers whose hearts, hands and lives are dedicated to the highest degree of Love and so it is
my heart's desire to be of service as an ADL Mentor.
