grew up in the Midwest, the last of seven in a middle class, Lutheran
family with conventional, no-nonsense values in a conventional,

Yet, I've always had a deep curiosity and drive to explore the unknown. I had a deep sense of inner knowing that didn't much make sense to me and quite a lot of intuitive and deja vu experiences that were equally as perplexing. I grew up both loving the mystical side of religion while questioning the restrictions of dogma and doctrine. After reading James Allen As a Man Thinketh in my teens, it set the foundation for personal development and exploration into the power of thought and intention.
Schooled and trained in Broadcast Journalism, I started out as a TV reporter and mastered skills in communication, deeply questioning and probing for answers while climbing the proverbial ladder. In time I entering the fast-paced, powerful corporate life of as a production & TV Executive. In the beginning it nurtured my innate curiosity, expanded my creativity and innate nature to discern fact from fiction. After 20 years, I was burnt out on the power, greed and corruption and left unfulfilled, drained and disillusioned. Through it all I tried to maintain an inner perspective and yearned for 'something more'.Then a series of unfortunate incidents culminating in a chronic illness prompted me to look INSIDE for answers.
What was wrong with me? I was restless, chronically exhausted, depressed, disillusioned with corporate life and could barely function. Everything was going wrong in my life. I had a history of traumatic events in my life starting from birth. My 2.5 year old brother died from a drawn-out illness before I was born and my mother still suffered his loss while carrying me in her womb. I had witnessed a commercial plane crash as an on-air reporter and suffered post-traumatic stress which I repressed. A court case that I still cannot officially talk about consumed my career and left it a ruinous mess of political spin-doctoring and lies which I also repressed. At this particular time, it snowballed into a life out of control - I lost my job, then my boyfriend, my beloved dog died and I was left financially, emotionally, spiritually and physically bankrupt. Celiacs, a debilitating food allergy to wheat, was also plaguing my body, but I did not yet know it.
I was literally on my knees and left with nothing when I stumbled by chance that some people call synchronicity on a little known, but powerful Divine healing energetic art called *Vortex Healing® . My teacher says I crawled into the class on my knuckles. I was a shell of a person yet was SO moved and energized by the first class that I enrolled in the next level, and then another and another. In the middle of my second class, I sat up and said to my self, "I am a healer", not knowing what it meant or where it would lead me. It took me a few more years to realize my potential and awaken out of the dream into Self. It IS a process that is not without it's twists, turns, darkness, light, ups, downs and plateaus. During this time, I was diagnosed with Celiacs disease and radically changed my diet.
2004, I turned my experience with my dogs ill health into an
adventurous journey into animal holistic health. This lead to a passion
and mission to help encourage education on optimum health for pets and
their guardians. With help, the Natural Pet Expo
began. It started as a small community get together and blossomed into a
regional event and online resource through websites and social media. I
now write, blog, speak and give workshops on natural animal health and
In January of 2007, I first approached an advanced Vortex student
named Aniruddhan with a premonition; "I am supposed to talk to you and I don't know why". This conversation lead to a friendship with the advanced energy healer who was in the early stages of developing Divine Diamond™
Healing,. 8th dimensional energy supported by Mata Amritanadamayi known as Amma. In 2010, he founded the Divine Diamond Institute an international organization supporting
Universal and personal evolutionary healing of which I worked as a facilitator, volunteer and consultant. This work helped expand my energy system as I advanced to the highest levels. Incorporating the experience into my own work I found a natural ease with working with groups and the land. I found it to be supremely grounding while cosmically expansive at the same time.
In 2012 I was called to branch into my own work and discovered natural talents for Earth work creating Divine Earth Energy which is easily used by everyone for physical healing, aligning and manifesting. On my birthday, June 20th of 2012, I was blessed with a gift from Sri Amma Karunamayi of channeling Divine Grace specifically for blessing the Earth and us as Earthlings. I am humbled beyond words, grateful with all my heart and dedicated to learning how to share and use this gift in private practice, group healings, workshops and Earth clearings. The work has branched out to incorporate and energy she calls Infinite Love, a very soft, yet powerful Divine Mother energetic tool for aligning, repatterning and transformation.
I am infinitely grateful to the DIVINE for transforming my life through experience. The strength of Vortex Healing is in it's direct access to Divine consciousness. It transforms karmic & genetic patterns at the root level for personal, global and universal healing. Absorbing the the constantly evolving energies, helped transform and awaken true purpose which is constantly unfolding. As I trained, the work cleared some deeply imbedded karmic patterns, limiting beliefs and identities that sabotage, block, cause pain, suffering and separation. I was an egoic, self absorbed, insomniac with an addiction to alcohol and a depressive tendencies. I also had an overactive, ruminating, negative mind which continues to transform into a quieter, calmer, clearer Being. I am considered 'awake' yet my heart is still opening to this still place of awake awareness as I let go of the imprinting of the separate, illusion of Self where there is no 'I'. I still work on resistance and surrender to inner knowing & trust, striving for the self awareness to lengthen the moments of stillness, clarity and profound peace. This is embodying awakening.
Dedicated to service and humanitarian efforts, this movement has expanded organically into innate gifts of insight, knowing, intuition, animal communication, spirit communication and Earth work which I in turn give back to service. Currently the work is expanded into frequencies imbedded in my voice, light language and Divine Earth Energy which are amplified by the harmonic resonance of each group to create deep healing for the planet. I sense traveling to do Earthwork as my seva, or service to humanity is in my future.
I am infinitely grateful to the Universe for leading and directing my path and I surrender to the infinite wisdom of Source.

Sitting in surrender with Amma Karunamayi in darshan on my birthday two years in a row, the Divine Mother gifted me with tools to aid awakening. The Cosmic Tree of Life evolved in my spine and has since moved into my heart. This tree is a deeply grounding tool that facilitates Earthwork. This tree is the basis of what I call Divine Earth Energy, a symbiotic connection of our cosmic/earthen awakening joining them together in an AS ABOVE/SO BELOW. This Earthwork
As the Earth changes,
the energies evolve, grow and change as well. I am constantly amazed at
how it is ALL evolving in quantum leaps and proportions.
I am infinitely grateful to the DIVINE and the energy work with transforming my life and helping bring out natural gifts of insight, animal communication, spirit guide communication, Earthwork and intuitive sensing. What will come next I wonder?
