Guest Biography: 

Claiming the fullness of your leadership requires recognizing and challenging the stories you tell yourself about both you and about the world itself. Nobody knows that better than Dr. Dorothy. From an orphanage, through growing up in the housing projects of South Boston, becoming a Catholic nun, an international airline stewardess, a mother, divorcee, psychotherapist, adjunct graduate faculty, a clinical instructor at UConn Medical School, a pioneer in integrative health, founding 4 companies, and moving to the Caribbean for almost 10 years, an author, and an Executive Leadership Coach/Consultant she has confronted her stories and the need for taking risks in order to grow like few others.

Dorothy’s personal journey in Spiritual Growth as well her understanding of the interconnectedness of Emotional Intelligence with Spiritual Development brings a multi-dimensional approach to her work, a work she loves. Having founded a school, The Institute of Healing Arts and Sciences, with 2 and 4 yr. programs which focused on a method of Energy Medicine she developed specializing in the psycho/spiritual correlates of physical disease and disorders, her work required her students, many of whom were physicians and varied other medical practitioners, to look at the need for depths of self-awareness and the ability to see themselves objectively, without judgment, and with unconditional love. That is the sole way of having truly in-depth healing and unlimited potential in claiming your leadership and changing the world.

A moniker her students gave her, the Dottie Lama, demonstrated the power she possessed to support their personal growth, with humor and faith, while she showed them a world, and a life, they never knew they could create. Dorothy is an example of what she teaches. Having once been told she was not qualified for nursing school because she attended an unaccredited inner-city high school, she has recently been asked to head the Health Committee of a UN Global Summit on Conscious Capitalism, where, as a leader in her field, she will speak of the need to bring heart, soul, and humanity into healthcare.

Dr. Dorothy has shown that leadership, to be effective, must have impact and that the level of impact you want to have requires an equal level of personal growth and transformation. Dr. Dorothy is a member of the National Speakers Association and Past-President of the Connecticut chapter of NSA. As a best-selling author, her newest book, Real Women Change The World (releasing on March 8th on International Women's Day 2019), addresses just that.
