My Bio

Sometime near my 40th birthday I began a quest to find more joy in my life.  There were many aspects of my life in which I was happy, but just as many where I felt blocked and could feel my soul withering. I had been ignoring these gnawings of unhappiness for quite some time until eventually they began to manifest as physical discomfort.  It got to be that each time I made a choice that made me unhappy, my body felt pain; the severity of this reaction started to rapidly increase with each choice that was misaligned with what my spirit needed.   

I realized it was time to make a significant change in the way I was approaching my life.  I knew with certainty I had the capacity to feel joy in all areas of my life, and I wanted to feel more fully joyful and alive, but hadn't a clue as to where to begin this quest.  A friend introduced me to a talented psychic and a whole new world opened up to me.  Suddenly I saw what I'd always known, especially as a child - that there is much more to life than what we typically see!  

A spiritual retreat on my 40th birthday further opened me to metaphysical concepts, some new to me and others that I'd long had an interest in but hadn't thoroughly pursued.   I began an odyssey of immersing myself in learning, spending nearly all my spare time taking classes, reading books, attending workshops and dedicating myself to my own personal healing.  Each doorway I chose to pass through led to new and different doorways.  As the Rumi, the 13th century poet and mystic, advises:  I responded to each call that excited my spirit!  

This learning and internal work has been going on since 2012 and continues to this day.  As a result of this spiritual awakening and deep personal growth, I found the joy I was seeking!  Along with it came many bumps in the road, a deep sense of peace, and a switch from a successful corporate career to becoming the Reiki Master and Energy Healer that I now am.
