These studies and putting them into practice continue to expand her regard for the importance of Maya traditional healing to holistic health.

She is ever grateful for the insights and professional connection to such powerful techniques and mindful people.

"The ATMAT community has welcomed me in as I hope to do for new practitioners entering this amazing group. The strength and support the community gives to one another is why I had to go to Convention in July of 2019. Hearing there was a need of new board members I felt it was my place to give back and help to keep the momentum moving forward making this community thrive around the world."
