My husband, 3 rescued dogs and I live in Christiansburg, Virginia. Originally from Connecticut, I started my career as a Park Ranger and migrated out west to San Diego, California to continue my education and career.

What inspired me to become a wellness professional?
After moving from San Diego to Southwest Virginia, the move reignited some of my dog Ranger's anxiety and then there was an unfortunate incident where he was attacked by another dog.

How my clients describe their first visit?
People have different experiences during their Reiki sessions, and each session seems to vary a bit. For most first time clients, they describe the session as very relaxing. Some people have visions or go deep into a meditative state, some fall asleep. Most people say that after their session they feel lighter, like burdens, stress, trauma was lifted. They feel more focused and balanced; they sleep better and more soundly. For some, the session eases their anxiety, for others their pain is relieved.
What I say to someone who has never tried Reiki?
I often explain to people that we are like onions, we have several layers of stress, trauma, life experiences that have effected us and Reiki sessions can help peel back those layers and remove or lessen the burden, and open our chakra's (energy centers) which facilitates balance and healing of the mind, body, spirit and soul.
