My Journey

Born and raised in the Lehigh Valley and a being a Nittany Lion at heart, I spent my undergraduate years at The Pennsylvania State University where I studied advertising and public relations as well as business administration.

After graduation, I moved to the Washington D.C. metro area and started my career in marketing communications, specializing in tradeshow and event management and working for government contractors and Fortune 500 companies. However, after moving back to Pennsylvania, starting my family and losing my mother to cancer, my focus shifted.  I had to face some really deep rooted emotional obstacles and I realized, my soul was calling out for something else.  With the support of my friends and family, I began expanding my interest and education in alternative and holistic healing.

I have always been drawn to the metaphysical world and finally, I've decided to embrace that part of me that was yearning to grow and am now connecting my business background with my passion—helping women get clear on what they want for their lives and for their body, mind and soul.

I am an intuitive energy healer, an Usui Reiki Master, a 200-hour certified yoga instructor and crystal connoisseur, offering women the support to clear their path of obstacles interfering with becoming their authentic selves, and helping them find the strong connection between the physical, the emotional, and the spiritual worlds.

I have two children who keep me in check with their inquisitive minds and sassy personalities, a cuddly pup who is part of my soul mate tribe, and a supportive and amazing husband who is gladly on this roller-coaster of life with me.  When we're not working on house renovations, we love playing board games, being in nature, traveling and enjoying the company of family and friends, especially around a campfire with a cocktail in hand ;-)
