How did you end up in the industry? I spent 15 years on the stage as a professional musical theater actor and was ready for a change. I lost my father to cancer when I was 26 and so when I was exploring new careers I knew I wanted to explore holistic alternative therapies to help people. In 2005 I went back to school to become a Holistic Health Practitioner.
