Grace was born into music and dance. From the childhood group in Cleveland, the Polish Singing Angels, to the choir she facilitated, the Harmonic Temple, to the Dances of Universal Peace, music has been a part of her life through today.
As a junior high and high school teacher, she taught Chemistry, Physics, Life Science, Biology, Anatomy, and Environmental Education in the United States and Micronesia. With a degree in Forest and Natural Resources Management, she worked for the Forest Service in Alaska and Colorado.
Grace’s love of the natural world led her to learn how to read, hear and decipher the sounds of nature, the beings of nature, seen and unseen, with elder teachers.
This combination of music, dance and natural sciences formed the foundation of Grace’s focus on the body in movement therapy to exercise the relationship with our inner and outer world.
She has shared her focus of peace through movement and dance to many communities worldwide through Dances of Universal Peace and the free movement Dance Community.
Grace believes in physical exercise to maintain optimum mind body soul freshness. She is a Nia Fitness Instructor and a Barre Fitness Instructor and has been employed with city recreation departments and local fitness centers.
Grace facilitates retreats to empower and be inspired. She leads many classes, special events, and retreats throughout the year worldwide.
She recorded and released 4 CD’s: Kunda (2004) and One Love (2006), All My Relations (2013), and her most recent, Life as a Garden (2020).
