Raised by a father who was a natural healer and well studied in world-religions, and a mother who was a 5th generation psychic medium, my siblings and I were exposed to teachings and trainings that other kids in the neighborhood would have found odd, strange, or scary. We learned to quiet the mind and meditate as early as 3-years old. We learned to respect science and to recognize that "like attracts like" so were encouraged to consistently keep our personal vibrations and intentions high. We were coached to examine information from multiple sources and question everything while also listening to our inner voice, trusting our own thoughts, and respecting our triggers. Almost every spirit sighting was investigated, dream was discussed, question about life and death was addressed, and each thought or idea—no matter how wacky--was explored. Game nights at our home included Monopoly and cribbage as well as Zenner Cards, transfiguration, remote viewing, past life regression, and talking with relatives who had passed.
I began the studies of astrology, numerology, and symbology when I was 10. At the same time my 9-year old sister Jody was becoming interested in Tarot and talking with "imaginary" friends. Our brother, although more reserved about his experiences, had prophetic dreams and an over-worked guardian angel that kept him out of serious trouble. Jody and I eagerly shared our experiences, excitement, and insights with one another. We had tea parties like other little girls, but we added the elements of reading the tea leaves and sharing our psychic impressions. Due to the ridicule, discrimination, and challenges our parents experienced throughout their lives, we learned early on that there was nothing wrong with what we were studying, but that it was private and best not to share with the masses. My sister and I began to call ourselves Sisters Two and continued to study and learn--separately and together--comparative religions, healing, totems, Akashic records, spirit guides, sacred spaces, crystals, ancient & haunted sites, and a variety of other topics and themes that enticed our senses and challenged our minds.
For nearly 40 years I thrived in higher education as Career Development Coordinator utilizing my credentials as a Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) and Certified Career Services Professional (CCSP) to help students define their goals, make decisions, prepare for the job search process, and strengthen their workplace skills. I enjoyed managing a vibrant department that would guide students through the self-awareness process of identifying their interests, values, skills, strengths, and personality. Simultaneously, I taught spiritual development classes at my parents' home 2 to 4 nights a week. I studied mediumship and spiritualism at places like the Arthur Findley College in England and I participated in haunted investigations at locations such as San Diego's Whaley House, and Fullerton's Fox Theater. Throughout the years, I studied with many wise and gifted teachers. I lead and participated in magical groups, healing circles, and weekly meditation nights. I have been inspired by the depth of humanity, compassion, wisdom, and curiosity expressed by the many teachers, seekers, and students in my life, and within our world.
Although I am well-studied, well-schooled, and well-practiced, I do not claim to be an expert in any one field. I have a wealth of knowledge and skills, but my talents flourish in following the words on which I was raised -- Know Thyself. If looking for an expert in a specific skill, I can recommend tremendous practitioners. My flair is working with others at times when they need a nudge or encouragement to embrace who they are, understand their divine core, and integrate their practical and spiritual realms onto a path that explores the depth of their purpose. I help people raise their self-awareness and make the connections between the many threads of their being. I inspire others to weave these threads together to form a tapestry that clarifies and informs their soul's path. My success comes when people like, love, and accept themselves for their unique vibrations, and take ownership of moving forward on their path of understanding, growth, and gratitude.
I am grateful that I have been able to integrate my physical and spiritual paths, to discover my joy, and to hone my abilities. I have dedicated myself to learning, teaching, and providing services and insights to help others integrate their physical world's knowledge and skills with their spiritual world's interests and abilities. I invite you to connect with me if you want personalized astrology/numerology reports, desire a reading, are exploring your spirituality, or need to gain some tools to use on your soul's path.
May our connection inspire you to embrace and integrate your journey.
