Hello, my name is Darlene Shaw . . . and I think and live "out-of-the-box"
I am an experienced change manager with a background in Information Technology (IT), Education, and Holistic Health. I have deep expertise in Knowledge Management and have used my analytical skills and influence to create coalitions of the “willing” to successfully achieve results and cost savings for the taxpayer. My leadership resulted in earning a coveted Navy IT Excellence Award for Innovation, greatly contributed to my organization winning a CAPE Prospector Award, and invitations to speak at industry conferences.
On the flip side, I am a passionate believer in the power of massage and other holistic modalities to support good health. I have an Associate Degree in Holistic Health. I am a skilled, and well-versed massage therapist certified in the state of California (Certificate #63871), manual lymph drainage therapist, and energy practitioner of Reiki and Qi Gong.
In my personal pursuit of health, I have found wellness through holistic therapies that have alleviated chronic stress, pain and other conditions. I’ve also been able to eliminate the need for some medications.
I believe work/life balance is the key to a joyful life with good health the enabler.
