In my life, I’ve had the pleasure of wearing many hats including-Artist, Performer, Singer, Actor, Watercraft Instructor, and even green breaking quarter horses! After being a professional clown for almost 25 years, I decided to make a lateral move and become a Comedy Stage Hypnotist in 2004. I entered a yearlong mentorship with Stage Hypnotist Lori Michaels and I was hooked. It was during this time that I also discovered the power hypnosis has to change lives. So, I enrolled and completed a master course with Hypnotist Gerald Kein- a world-renowned expert in Hypnosis. I also became a Board Certified Hypnotist certified by the National Guild of Hypnotists. These days I travel the country performing Comedy Hypnosis, Speaking and I have an Integrative Hypnosis practice specializing in Weight Management and Smoking Cessation in Tampa, Florida.




Here is my life calling–Laughter and making a positive difference in the lives of others. That is what lights me up! Hypnosis, both Comedy Hypnosis, and Integrative Hypnosis change lives! I get to empower others. I help them release old thinking and create powerful new thinking that supports the life they want now. They feel and think better when they leave my stage or my office. I get to make people laugh and laugh hard! (But then you should have caught on to that since I was clown, right?) I can’t imagine anything better.



As a practicing Integrative Hypnotist, I attend trainings every year through conferences, workshops, and distance training. After all, this is an art and a practice. I aim to stay on the cutting edge.
