Eileen started studying the Alexander Technique in 1978. In 1979 entered the 3 year teacher training certification program. Around the same time, she began studying with Marjorie Barstow, the first graduate of F.M. Alexander's first teacher training course. Along the way, Eileen was fortunate to have the opportunity to work with a number of master teachers of the Technique. She continued to study closely with  and apprenticed with her for 15 years, sometimes assisting her with her teaching around the world until Marjorie's death at 95 years old in 1994. Eileen is one of only five teachers worldwide who was both traditionally certified and trained, and who also had an apprenticeship training in the Alexander Technique with Marjorie Barstow.

Eileen has an interest in how the brain works and in functional anatomy, both of which are areas of interest and continual study for her. She came to the Technique from a background in acting and gymnastics and some of the esoteric arts. Eileen is a trained Feldenkrais Practitioner. She has studied with the Dalai Lama; trained in Marshall Rosenberg's non-violent communication method; trained in Cranio-Sacral Therapy; and is a Reiki Master.
