Milton J. Albrecht was the first Bowen therapist certified outside of Australia, sponsoring the first Bowen seminar held in the U.S., in September, 1989. Becoming internationally well-known for his progressive interpretation of Tom Bowen's Australian modality, Albrecht filled the need for a U.S.-based Bowen therapy organization. Jolean and Wes took several classes with Milton, as he graciously mentored their private practice.
Wes and Jolean became students of Milton Albrecht, in 1997 and the two became certified through Bowen Therapy International and began practicing in El Dorado County, California. In 2010, the Parker School of Bowenology™ was moved to its new facility in Auburn, CA.
Jolean has a profound familiarity with the Bowen Technique, and brings to the classes a captivating, energetic teaching style much like that of her mentor, Milton Albrecht. Infusing her class lectures with years of fascinating clientele narrative, Jolean passionately aids her students to understand and utilize the Bowen Technique.
