Reiki Master Practitioner and Instructor
I'm a regular person, like most people. I love science, earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics and have always been intrigued with the world and how things work.
I took my first Reiki class in 1995 after hearing fascinating stories about all Reiki could do. While on a trip to Egypt in 1998, my next steps became clear. I returned home and completed my Reiki training. I practiced on family and friends and especially liked doing distance Reiki which I found very meditative.
In 2006, I began volunteering at my veterinarian's office giving Reiki to the animals. I soon discovered I could communicate with them which gave the sessions a whole new depth and the results were amazing. I began my own practice within the veterinarian's office. As I saw more and more animals, their people inquired about learning Reiki and having sessions for themselves. As a result, my practice grew to offering sessions for people and all levels of Reiki training, as well.
Unfortunately, the time came for my family's relocation due to my husband's job. I found it difficult to leave my Reiki family of students and clients behind. It was very hard. The last thing I wanted to do was start over and then have to walk away again, so I went back to practicing Reiki for myself and my family. I also used this time to read books about spiritual and healing subjects, take classes, and volunteer in the Roswell Park Cancer Institute's Healing Touch program. I retook all levels of Reiki classes with different teachers, including William Rand of the International Center for Reiki Training and completed Karuna® Master Training in 2013, Holy Fire® in 2015 and Holy Fire® II in 2016. I went on to complete Medical Reiki Master training in 2017 and repeated Karuna® Reiki ART/Master with William Rand in 2018 but with the upgraded Holy Fire® III energy which is more powerful than the energy I previously worked with.
Me too! Being a physicist, I've always approached questions scientifically. "Seeing is Believing" is my motto. But with Reiki, the seeing part is in the results. I simply reached a point where I couldn't deny that Reiki is, indeed, real.
I'm grateful that I was so fascinated in the possibilities of Reiki that I learned it and now practice daily. Through the years, I have witnessed amazing results in myself, family, friends, clients and various animal species. Teaching Reiki to others is such a joy because I know others will practice and also discover the gift of Reiki in their own lives.
Given my own Reiki journey, I understand how you may be skeptical and I think that's natural. So, please contact me with any questions and see if you feel drawn to giving Reiki a try.
Reiki has been in my life for over 24 years now. I love Reiki and I love sharing it with people and animals. So, when my family moved to Michigan, I allowed myself to be open to the possibilities of again serving more people through Reiki.
My office and classroom are both located at the Center for Innovation and Education in Saline. Locals know it as the former St. Joe's Hospital. It is now EHM Senior Solutions and houses a variety of health-related services including physicians, Arbor Hospice, physical therapy, occupational rehab, and short and long-term care. If you are interested in incorporating Reiki during medical procedures, please see this page for more information. I also continue to offer distance sessions for people who live farther away.
