I am a science-based Occupational Therapist who learned to communicate with my deceased loved ones even though I had no initial psychic or spiritual awareness. I'm a Reiki Master, international speaker, award-winning author, and Fellow of the American Occupational Therapy Association. My education includes having an Advanced Master of Science degree in Occupational Therapy, graduating summa cum laude from Boston University. Utica University was the site of my undergraduate training in Occupational Therapy. I've owned five private practices, including one that grew from a one-person business (myself) to a staff of over 350 therapists serving over 100,000 clients. I've been President of the Delaware Occupational Therapy Association, Vice President of all the State Occupational Therapy Association Presidents, and Secretary of the Pennsylvania Occupational Therapy Education and Licensure Board. I served as the Joint Commission medical accreditation and certification Home Health representative for six rehabilitation organizations, including the American Occupational Therapy Association, the American Physical Therapy Association, the American Speech and Hearing Association, and three national Therapeutic Recreation Associations. It's been exciting to be the first person to teach one-day, certificate-provided Reiki training courses at every American Occupational Therapy Association Annual Conference since 2015. I'm also thrilled to be the first to conduct Reiki certificate-provided training at the International Association for Near-Death Studies Annual Conference in person in 2022 and online in 2021. Reiki reduces pain, creates a feeling of self-worth, and enhances after-death communication. I teach one day Reiki Immersion Online certificate-provided weekend courses in the spring, and in-person Reiki training at medical universities and national and state conferences. My Reiki trainings average 96% Excellent/Very Good effectiveness. My After-Death Communication Weekend Workshops are taught online in the fall. I'm thrilled that 100% of all respondents to my 2021 and 2020 After-Death Communication post-course survey realize they can receive and share communication with their deceased loved ones. I've taught in-person After-Death Communication workshops at Lily Dale Assembly, the largest community of psychics and mediums in the United States. Additional after-death communication presentations include workshops with Helping Parents Heal, The Compassionate Friends, the International Association for Near-Death Studies, dozens of holistic expos, metaphysical chapels, bookstores, and book clubs. Multiple keynotes and guest speaker presentations occur regularly throughout the year, both online and in-person. Reiki, After-Death Communication, Forest Bathing, Spirituality, Integrative Health, Guided Meditations, Sound Healing, and Overcoming the Chaos of COVID are common topics. I'm also trained in automatic writing, shamanism, communicating with nature spirits, crystal energy, and healing using a wide range of complementary modalities. I was delighted to be highlighted in the film Life to Afterlife: The Healers. It's an honor to be a hospice volunteer, providing Reiki to those actively dying. Empowering LOVE and support, combined with dynamic interactions, are woven throughout all my presentations. My husband and I have almost finished visiting all the U.S. National Parks. We thoroughly enjoy our two wonderful sons and their extended families. I love to camp, scuba dive, travel, read, enjoy music, sharing joy, and living life to its fullest.
