About Karlo Berger
Over the years, I have worked in the fields of integrative healthcare, community development, education, international security, and the environment. My employers have included the Lynx Collaborative Care Network, the Watson Institute for International Studies, Saferworld, Choices for Bristol, and the UN Earth Summit. I am a 1986 cum laude graduate of Brown University.
I also practice shiatsu massage at my private practice in Providence, Rhode Island. I teach shiatsu and acupressure to massage students at the Community College of Rhode Island and to the wider community. I live in Providence, Rhode Island with my wife Annie Gjelsvik, my daughter Astrid, and my son Leif.View my profile

Ideas snap with precision, passion and deep reflection as he converses about how to create a sustainable health-care system based on holistic principles.
