About the Practitioner
I was born and raised in North Minneapolis. I graduated from the University of St. Thomas in 1996 with a degree in Social Work and shortly thereafter began my decade long career as a social worker. In 2001 I began taking Feng Shui consultant classes. As with a lot of us, life happened and I never finished the courses but used its principles going forward in my journey. My second career in financial services began in 2006 and that’s where I’ve been ever since.
Fast forward to 2017. My Reiki adventure began after returning from a Tao Meditation Retreat in Sedona, Arizona in January of 2017. My older kids were close to leaving home and I was thinking about what I wanted to do next with my life. It had always been my desire to return to social services but I wasn’t certain what area. The retreat had rekindled my interest in Feng Shui and the concept that everything is energy. As I started researching and contemplating my next move, Reiki came to me with a clarity I haven’t experienced in many many years. A few days later I signed up for classes and started my new path in healing!
I have now run a small Reiki practice out of my home for two years. About a year ago I added doTERRA essential oils. I’ve had great success with them personally, getting off of anti depressants permanently after having been on them on and off for 20 years! I make some custom blends and natural products for my clients as well as diffuse essential oils during sessions. We don’t put enough emphasis on our olfactory system but it’s a very important factor in healing and essential oils are a natural and holistic way to tap into it. Stay tuned for the addition of CBD oils to my practice as well.
As I’ve been building my business my hearts desire has been to bring Reiki healing back to my home town, North Minneapolis. I’ve worked in collaboration with The Zen Bin recently, doing Pop-Up events, introducing Reiki to a broader audience and loving every moment! Starting in January 2020 I’ll be providing Reiki at their new home over North and can’t wait to for this new adventure to begin!
