Growing up in her parent´s (Dr. Paul Goss and Mrs. Alzonia Goss) natural food store in a predominantly black community where there is a high risk of hypertension, diabetes, heart disease and depression she saw the need to continue her parents work of healing the community through wholistic methods.

She uses a variety of healing modalities to identify the imbalances in one´s body to determine what programs to put her clients on.

“As a child, I grew up in a household of wholistic healers. I have been vegetarian since the age of two with a little backsliding here and there. I suffered with chronic bronchitis which made it hard for me to function as a normal child. As a result of eating vegetarian, taking herbal medicine and playing sports I was able to control this ailment. I´m 46, have 6 healthy children and 3 grandchildren. I am a life-a-holic, passionate about African dance, energetic and ready to take on the challenge of healing Africans Globally.
