Along my path, I have acquired many skills I feel led to share. I am a certified Reiki II practitioner and energy healer. I shared my gift of Reiki energy healing with friends and family for the past 7 years. I attended The Way of Love program at Inner Source Healing in Malvern, PA for the past 3 years. It has been a beautiful experience for me, both challenging and deeply healing, as I have come to know myself better. I have learned to stay open, find choice in any experience, and remember love. I am grateful to Inner Source Healing for the experience of doing my own inner work in group and for the knowledge and training, allowing me to work with others in a similar capacity. I would love to help YOU resolve inner conflicts and experience life more joyfully!
I have a B.A. from UMass Amherst, in Education and Sociology and an M.A. from Lesley University in Education. I am a former elementary school teacher in the Shrewsbury and Westborough, MA Public School Systems. I spent 18 years teaching kindergarten, 2nd, and 3rd grade. I have 20+ years of experience working with children in many capacities; teacher, nanny, home daycare provider, tutor, mentor, and guide. I am also mom to two wonderful children.
I have been a professional portrait photographer for the past 7 years and I absolutely love capturing a moment in time that will be enjoyed for years to come. You can check out my gallery here. I am offering "superpower" photography sessions to children and adults!We all have incredible superpowers! Let's recognize them within ourselves and highlight them in a photoshoot, so we can own them as part of our inner power and fabulousness!
I offer sacred garden design & installation. Over the years, my family has lived in many locations, Central MA, Asheville, NC, and Philadelphia. In each home we lived, I would spend the first month feeling, observing, and listening to the land. I would watch the land in relationship with the sun, with the inhabited trees and plants, and with the style and location of the house. I would begin to feel where a garden could be created. I have built gardens that use only the materials that are available on the land, utilizing stepping stones found in the woods or from an unused walkway, acquiring leftover bricks, and using fallen branches to create archways, borders, and trellises. There's an abundance of rocks within the ground that can be used for borders or spiral gardens. I will find materials at yard sales; things that people are hoping to part with, that can be repurposed. There's so many ways to create a sacred garden. It comes down to your wishes and hopes, and my intuitive reactions to your land.
I also offer myself as Mom of Many Trades, think Jack of All Trades, but with a feminine twist on the handyman thing.
