Certified Biofield Tuning Practitioner

I came to Energy medicine on a long and winding path. I am a mom, a wife, a former fitness professional, and a perpetual student of life; and it all came to a screeching halt 7 years ago. A 15-year career in medical insurance gave me great insight into traditional western medicine, but I’d always dreamed of working with people one-on-one in the wellness and fitness industry. As a Certified Fitness Instructor and Franchise owner for 9 years, I loved working with people every day in their quest for health; until chronic back pain sidelined me. ​ ​I know how it feels to be stressed out, in pain, drained and unable to do what you love. Years of cortisone shots, physical therapy and countless medications left me depressed and facing spine surgery at 45. I believe traditional medicine has its place, but it became absolutely essential to explore all my options to avoid surgery and get my life back.


​I began practicing Reiki in 2008, long before my spine issues, and found a sense of centering, relaxation and spiritual connection. I added Yoga, Acupuncture and Acu-Mobility. I learned that my physical pain was caused by emotions I’d buried. Through these healing modalities, the pain dissipated and Energy work became my passion. With 3 years of training in Full Spectrum Healing, at Rhys Thomas Institute of Energy Medicine, and the Biofield Tuning Institute;

I got my life back- NO Surgery!

The end of my fitness career became the beautiful gift of this practice, where my training in conventional medicine, kinesiology, energy anatomy 

and 53 years of life experience helps others.

I look forward to working with you and helping you find your way to living your best life.
