My role is to guide you through this transformative process, empowering you to establish a profound connection with Wisdom within. Let's embark on this journey together and let me help you find your SHINE again.

Teacher. Healer. Coach.


Teaching has been a constant in my life journey. From my early days in kindergarten, I knew that becoming a teacher was my calling. The love for learning and education led me to start my career as a 4th-grade teacher, where I spent several years. Later, I transitioned into the role of an instructional coach at our school, which changed the course of my life. While I cherished working with children, my passion evolved towards supporting and guiding teachers in enhancing their instructional practices.

My experience grew as I later became an educational consultant and worked with teachers around the country. These experiences provided me with valuable insights into working with adults. Over the years, my ability to mentor, consult, and motivate teachers grew significantly.

Through my personal journey of healing from fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, gut issues and mild depression, I discovered the power of inner healing as means of restoring health, happiness and wholeness. This realization ignited my desire to assist others in their healing and spiritual growth journeys. My focus shifted towards connecting with individuals, understanding their needs, and supporting them in their healing processes.



With years of practice helping clients harness their inner strength and embark on a healing journey, my clients have empowered themselves to take charge of their lives and create a positive impact on the world.

Recognizing that imbalance in mind, body, emotions and spirit can lead to feelings of hopelessness, I specialize in helping women connect with their innate healing abilities. By cultivating a harmonious relationship between their mental, physical, and emotional bodies and developing a deeper connection with their Spirit,  individuals can experience joy and peace, paving the way for a more fulfilling life.

My approach combines life coaching with energy-balancing techniques like Reiki, chakra healing, and therapeutic essential oils. Whether working with women in group settings or individual sessions, my goal is to facilitate deep healing, restore health and harmony and guide individuals towards fulfilling their true Soul Purpose.

This fusion of teaching, coaching, rebalancing with Reiki, essential oils, and a commitment to facilitating transformation, emphasizes my dedication to leaving a lasting, positive mark on the world.

My story from pain to inner peace.


Come with me on a journey behind the scenes to discover the driving force behind my path as a healer.

In 2003, I received a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, a chronic condition characterized by widespread pain. For years, I struggled with low energy, sleep disturbances, and frequent illnesses, such as leaky gut, SIBO, and fibroids leaving me drained and depleted. Constant pain and exhaustion made it challenging to focus on work and relationships.

Back then, I was unaware ‚Äď or perhaps unwilling to acknowledge ‚Äď that I was also battling mild depression. Feeling hopeless, I turned to over-the-counter and prescription medications, along with alcohol and recreational drugs to cope. After enduring harsh side effects for several years with little relief, I chose to embrace a holistic healing approach after receiving a message to look up "nutritional medicine" one tearful night after praying to God for help.¬†

Illness can serve as a catalyst for acknowledging unmet physical and emotional needs. This realization sparked a quest to understand the human body and holistic health. My journey towards a balanced life is ongoing, fueled by a desire for peace, clarity, and well-being.

In my pursuit of natural remedies for fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, I delved into healthy eating, natural healing, and mind-body connections. I discovered the body's innate healing power. Free from fibromyalgia symptoms and all medications, I now feel happier, healthier, and more vibrant than I did at 26 yrs old.

By adopting a regimen of healthy eating, Reiki, chakra balancing, essential oils, and a deeper spiritual connection, I navigated my path to successful self-healing. Embracing these healing practices has brought immense growth, peace, and expansion to every aspect of my life.

As I embarked on this healing journey, transitioning to a mostly plant-based diet significantly reduced pain and fatigue. Essential oils improved my sleep, enhanced my emotional well-being, deepened my spiritual connection, and improved my quality of sleep.

Passionate about helping others

My life changed forever when I began practicing Reiki. Following my initial session, a profound transformation occurred within me, initiating a miraculous healing process across all levels ‚Äď physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

This newfound light illuminated outdated patterns, thoughts, emotions, and memories that hindered my growth and healing. Recognizing and releasing these burdens, I realized the profound impact of Reiki and specifically, the Reiki principles which I now call S.H.I.N.E. 

This journey demanded courage, discipline, and inner strength to restore health and inner harmony. I now stand as a beacon for those awakening to their inner light. For those seeking to move beyond masking symptoms, managing chronic stress, searching for inner peace, who are ready to unleash their innate healing capabilities, welcome to a sanctuary of holistic well-being: The SHINE Sanctuary of Healing Arts.

A Little More About Me....

  • I was born on Christmas Day (during a full moon) and I've always felt a close connection with Jesus and His teachings.
  • When I was 25 I had surgery to remove two grapefruit sized cysts from my ovaries. (Thank goodness they were benign).
  • Shortly after, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue and spent several years ‚Äúliving‚ÄĚ with the painful symptoms and took numerous prescription drugs just to get through each day. I've also struggled with leaky gut, SIBO and difficult menstrual cycles due to fibroids.
  • I wrote a best-selling book called ‚Äď ‚ÄúThe Chakra Activation Method‚ÄĚ and published the companion Chakra Oils Oracle deck the following year.¬†
  • I have a Master‚Äôs degree in education; am a National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT), Usui Reiki Master Teacher (RMT), Lightarian Reiki Master, and certified transformational coach.
  • I have been a literacy fellow and educational consultant for two non-profit organizations.
  • I have¬†over a decade of experience in developing and facilitating virtual learning sessions & classes both in the field of education and in holistic healing.¬†
  • I love using essential oils for emotional, mental, physical & spiritual wellbeing (I have a diffuser in nearly every room of our house).
  • I¬†now reside on the Seacoast of NH with my husband and fur-baby, Otto. It's BEAUTIFUL here and I am grateful every day.¬†
  • I truly believe that all souls are incredible and I am constantly amazed by my client's courage, strength and beauty. I feel so grateful that I get to devote my days to empowering individuals on a journey of healing & spiritual growth and watching them SHINE more brightly. I am truly grateful.

I can't forget about Otto

We adopted Otto in 2020. He's such a special pup. It took him awhile to adjust to us and to his new home. We spent the first several days focusing on decompression and making him feel safe and comfortable with us.

He spent the first few months of his life very sick, on IV medications, bouncing between several different shelters and foster care. In fact, his paperwork stated that he was 24hrs away from be euthanized. AND now, he is healthy and thriving. I used many of the same techniques that helped me heal. I gave him Reiki daily and diffused essential oils to help him feel calm. 

He is Mr. independent and doesn't open up easily to people. He still gets skiddish and seems to have trauma response that still lingers from his early experiences. He teaches me so much about patience, unconditional love, and reminds me that trauma can take awhile to heal from. 


‚ÄúAlignment is a form of remembrance, for deep within each of us is recognition and remembrance of who we really are.‚ÄĚ

I'm all about

Helping individuals become aware of who they really are, overcome self-sabotage and false beliefs so they can rebalance the physical and spiritual, learn to listen to their true Soul's calling and move confidently down that path, with ease, flow and freedom.


I'm not about

Trying to force people to awaken. I cannot help those are unwilling to SHINE Light on their hidden patterns, change self-sabotaging habits and refuse to accept full responsibility for changing their life.
