This year, 2017, marks my 30th year working in the alternative health field. Sheesh! I feel old as I write this.
I started out as a licensed massage therapist providing deep tissue, neuromuscular massage, and a bit of reiki/energy work. I did this for seventeen years. However, as the years went on, my body eventually started to feel the aches and pains of injuries acquired over those years and hence, I began to look for gentler modalities that I could use with my clients.
I retired my massage therapy license in 2005 and began to put into practice several other techniques for which I received training and certification. These included Hypnotherapy, EFT, Sound Healing, Meditation, Aromatherapy, Herbalism, Crystal Therapy, Healing Touch, a lot more Reiki, Shamanic Journeying, Soul and Power Animal retrievals, and Celebrancy practices.
In 2009, I began an “awakening” process, though I didn’t realize what it was at the time. Strange events were occurring in my life, which wasn’t completely unheard of for me, however these odd happenings seemed to “shift” and were bumped up in intensity from what they used to be. Part of this was seeing number sequences such as 11:11, 333, 444, and so on. These would appear not just on my digital clock, but on receipts, street addresses, license plates, etc. This came full circle when, in late 2011 and early 2012, I experienced events that would change who I am and what I believed forever. These events were conscious interactions with inter-dimensional beings, most commonly known as extra-terrestrials. I know, crazy right? It was harrowing and confusing and I discovered I was not as open-minded as I thought I was! In speaking with my parents about these events, they were able to fill in pieces of the puzzle from my childhood which helped validate what was happening.
Thanks to some wonderful people in the ET/UFO field, such as Kathleen Marden, Whitley Strieber, Denise Stoner, and Miesha Johnston, I was put at ease (to some extent!) about what was happening and began my journey of healing myself and also helping others who have been dealing with these phenomenal experiences. We now have a wonderful team in the Nashville, Tennessee area which includes Chris Hancock (www.chrishancocktherapy.com) , who has a psychotherapy practice in Brentwood, and Olivia Bishop (www.intuitiveconsultation.com), who has a hypnotherapy practice in Berry Hill. Olivia performs regressive hypnosis for abductions and I do not due to the triggering effect it could have on me, so we complement each other nicely in that regard. We run monthly support groups for experiencers for the national organizations of Starborn Support, MUFON (Mutual UFO Network), and F.R.E.E. (the Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial Encounters founded by Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Mary Rodwell, and Reinerio Hernandez). It has been an honor to work among such esteemed professionals in the field.
I am currently in the home stretch of finishing up a book about my experiences called Happenings: One Ordinary Woman’s Story About Contact with Extraordinary Beings, and am the creator of The Experiencer’s Toolbox and The Experiencer’s Journal. If you are interested in more details about my story, please visit the Interviews & Media section of my website. If you believe you are an experiencer of this phenomena, or are interested in the topic, please visit the Offerings page.
In my spare time I enjoy performing wedding ceremonies as a legally ordained Unity-New Though-Interfaith minister and have done this since 2004.
From time-to-time I teach and hold groups for EFT, Meditation, Shamanic Journeying, and Women’s Empowerment Drumming Circles.
I have been happily married to my husband, Scott, who is a magnificent balloon artist and children’s entertainer, for fourteen years. We have a beautiful thirteen year-old daughter whom we homeschool, a mystical white poodle, two four-legged cats and one three-legged miracle cat, and two magical bufo alvarius toads. We try to live our lives stress-free at our Easy Breezy Cottage in the Nashville suburbs.
