 A little about my

professional journey...

I have enjoyed spending the last 20 years in all facets of the Salon and Spa industry, including Cosmetology Education, Salon, and Spa Management, as well as specialized service in skincare, haircare, and body treatments. 

Over the years I have had extensive opportunities to learn and use a multitude of relaxation techniques. In 2005 I took my first Usui Reiki I class with Edward Cole, a gifted teacher who also worked with the Cleveland Clinic and Ursuline College, Sophia Center. This class experience facilitated an amazing impact on my life. I chose to continue growing and training with Edward learning Usui Reiki II (2006), Usui ART (2007), and Usui Masters class (2007). Recently, I had the great pleasure of taking- Holy Fire II Karuna® Reiki Masters class with William Lee Rand (2017). Expanding on that, I upgraded to the refined energy of Holy Fire III® (2019). Currently, I have expanded my animal Reiki techniques with an Animal Reiki Masters Certification taught by Colleen Benelli, Sioux Strong, and Robin Benelli. This year's growth cycle also called for the expansion of my love of breathwork and meditation with a Teachers Training Course. 

 Reiki for many years has been a part of my lifestyle practice and a key understanding of my life’s purpose. It is my goal to focus on the three paths I feel are most beneficial for the client and practitioner.

  • Providing present and complete attention to the client’s comfort and well-being. The client always comes first!

  • Working in collaboration with doctors, therapists, and holistic health care providers, in addition to the family for the benefit of the whole person.

  • Providing quality education in a comfortable secure setting where students can grow emotionally and mentally, supplying quality manuals, and teaching all content in a clear and organized fashion.

 As a life-long learner, I am committed to continuing my own education in order to provide students and clients with a quality professional experience.  It is my pledge to provide all education, collaboration, and Reiki treatments with the utmost integrity.
