A companion for the Journey

Educated in St. Ignatius spirituality and executive leadership. I hold a Master's in Organizational Management and Development.

For over nine years, I worked for a Fortune 100 company advancing to the Director of Business Development while running a home based business.

As single mom, I learned to love and be loved with help from Kyle, my amazing son, a steady desire from the beloved and support from friends and family.

I reside in the Washington DC area and Michigan with love and support from husband Wern. I work with individuals who desire to achieve work/life balance, facilitate group retreats and continue to prepare the soil, sow the seed and marvel at the bounty.

Reiki Practitioner

I received all three levels of my Reiki training and atonement with gratitude from Maureen Conroy RSM. D. Min. a fantastic woman with an amazing commitment to her healing ministry.

Reiki is a holistic modality of healing where the practitioner, with the aid of the spiritual consciousness that is all-knowing, understands each person completely, knows the cause of all problems and difficulties and knows how to heal, heals.

It is a light to no touch healing process preformed with clothing on while seated or lying on a massage table.
