Hello,  You found me!

I had my first known Reiki experience in 2012, and it brought me to where I am today! Thank you for deciding to read a little bit about me. I have always had great faith in my own guidance, and my family always said that since birth I was a heart-full person. I felt my own spiritual awakening then, and I have never seemed to have any boundaries in communication with all forms of life.

As a child, I developed a deep connection with animals and used it with the animals on my grandmother’s farm. With my own beloved pet-friends around me, this developed throughout the years. Then I began working with people. In my early twenties I choose to develop a deeper understanding of nutrition within the body. I began this process at West Virginia University, majoring in Dietary Studies, and I worked alongside an Ayurvedic Dietitian. My studies continued in nutrition, health, and spiritual connection.

I deeply believe in the sense of community and connection, and the sacred space I have created exudes with this heart-filled presence. My whole entire being adores teaching and guiding others in Reiki. The beauty of offering guidance through this passage is remarkable. It can be your first time in a class or as a student repeating a class. The growth that occurs with your own connection to your true self is pure beauty. My teaching philosophy is gentle, compassionate, educational, and beyond all – FUN!

Not only am I a teacher, I am also a student. I continue to grow in my training.

I am a Reiki Master Teacher and Practitioner with Usui Holy Fire II Reiki & Holy Fire II Karuna Reiki®. I began my Reiki studies in Seattle, WA under the Tibetan system and in 2015 I began my studies with William Rand with Holy Fire.

My studies also have also included Jikiden Reiki® Okuden, Holographic Sound Practitioner, Akashic Records Reader, Crystals grids, Earth studies and other healing modalities. I specialize in children, animals and illnesses. I offer individual & group events at my beautiful studio & am willing to travel. I volunteer once a week to the local community so I can continue to spread the joy, beauty and compassion to all who are willing to receive it. It will be a joy connecting with you.
