As the former Senior Director of Product Development for an international medical device company specializing in heart monitoring, Anne is well steeped in the scientific method and highly value evidence medicine. However, she also believes that Western medicine can be even more powerful when it “makes room on the throne” for traditional sciences, including the yogic traditions.
Anne holds a B.S. in Medical Biology from S.U.N.Y. and a Ph.D. in Mythological Studies with an emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. Her doctoral dissertation is entitled: Medical Humanities: Speaking to the Cardiologist through Myth and Metaphor (2010). The human heart is her passion and she appreciates the fact that it is more than a pump. Anne views the heart as an organ of perception which is more powerful than many people realize.
