Hello and thank you for visiting my website. As an Interfaith Minister, Professional Ceremony Officiant, and Intuitive Energy Healer and Medium, it is my goal to come from a place of understanding and acceptance, meeting each person where they are on their journey. Here is a little about me to help you feel comfortable when considering any of the various services I offer:
I was born and raised in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and after spending time studying for a pre-veterinary degree and then a psychology degree, and years working in the corporate world and in health care, the many twists and turns eventually led me to holistic healing of the body, mind and spirit. A natural healer and intuitive, I became certified as an Usui Reiki Master and Teacher in 2004 (later also training in the Healing Touch program). A few years later, I was drawn to the 2 year ministry program at The New Seminary in NYC and was ordained as an Interfaith Minister by The Interfaith Temple (my backing for being able to legally officiate weddings in all 50 states and its territories), earning status as an Associate Minister. It was during those final months of seminary, and with a deepening direction to serve the community in several ways, that my ministry was born.
I have been a member of A World Alliance of Interfaith Clergy and previously served two terms on the board of trustees at a local chapel where I was also a regular speaker and liturgist for over 6 years. For several years, it was also a privilege to lend a hand as a Hospice Chaplain.
2018 marks 9 years in a career in which I’m passionate about. As a full-time Ceremony Officiant for weddings, and also funerals and baptisms, along with energy healing and readings, and energy clearing of homes and businesses, my life is filled with love and blessings at every turn. And I must say, being in my 50s has made me even more grateful and welcoming of all these experiences which flow abundantly into my life.
With the ambition to continue education and obtain a degree, this stage of my life has drawn me to a Bachelors in Communications with a concentration in Human Communication. It’s quite fitting for me and I’m finding that my experience as a speaker and a writer is beneficial in class!
My personal time is spent writing, healing, singing, drumming, meditating, yoga, creating, nature, puzzle books and spending time with my loving family and friends. Recently, I adopted Oliver (Ollie), a 14 year old Shih Tzu, who is mostly deaf and mostly blind. He came by way of a rescue in North Carolina and I’m so happy he is sharing his life with me. Years ago, my first senior rescue, Dixie Buddha, a Pekingese breeder who was rescued at age 10 from a puppy mill, blessed me with her presence for the last years of her life. She especially showed me that no matter how rough life may have been, there is always room for love ♥
