Special Areas of Interest:
Teaching and inspiring everyone to explore their health and ability to heal using non-traditional medicine. Non-traditional medicine is divided into 3 categories: medical/physical, bodywork, and energetic/emotional modalities. Using the individualized combination of these modalities will help the body to heal.

“I have the unique career experience and expertise to bridge the gap between mainstream medicine and the full range of non-traditional or Integrative Medicine. This happened after 15 years of clients who were still sick and getting sicker at following mainstream wellness and health guidelines and after I suffered from postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety, chronic pain and fatigue. I used Integrative Medicine in place of mainstream medicine for full healing. My daughter has never had an ear infection and no chronic disease, all using Integrative Medicine.”

Special groups I work with:
New Mother’s Health (fertility, conception, postpartum)
Children’s Health (wellness and correction of chronic issues)

Special Areas of Interest:

I am a Registered Nurse Case Manager for Hospice, end of life care. I began my profession in an acute care setting in the hospital and felt that there was more out there for me; a desire to give to others in a different way. I began exploring the use of essential oils and realized that this was the missing link in modern medicine.

Plants not only play a vital role in the ecological balance of our planet but also have been linked to emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being of mankind and have been used in therapeutic ways for centuries. Essential oils are in essence the life-line of plants; the aromatic and volatile liquid is usually extracted through steam distillation and is made up of complex and unique chemical compounds.

I use essential oils in my home and have introduced them into my families and friend’s homes to embark on a natural journey to wellness. In my practice as a direct caregiver, I have been able to use essential oils, with permission from my patient’s families, to help promote relaxation and calmness in my hospice patients. The feeling of being able to help people during such a vulnerable time in their lives with natural medicine is one that is indescribable. I whole-heartedly believe in alternative medicine and complementary therapies.

My clients reside across the country and I can be reached at:
