It has taken me many, many years to discover my purpose, but I have finally come home to my heart through complete surrender to the universe. After many years suffering with chronic pain and depression which I was taking over one dozen multiple chemical medications, I am finally free.

Within a five year period, I suffered multiple losses - my sister, my father, my mother and my 14 year old dog, all of which pushed me deeply into spiritual discovery. Following years spent healing my body and weaning myself off all of the prescribed medications, I found my purpose through the study of Usui Reiki. Now as a Reiki Master practitioner, teacher and women’s empowerment coach, I am honoured to guide women in discovering how they too can release their past traumas and pain to find their exceptional and live a happy, fulfilled life. 

I have found my purpose in inspiring, motivating and empowering women to use their pain as a pedestal to the pinnacle of their purpose through my quarterly event, “Create Your Exceptional Life”. 

And a little side gig, I’m also a reverend and Officiant and love helping couples tie the knot!!!
