I received a B.S. in Elementary Education and an M.Ed in Counselor Education working as a school counselor until choosing to stay at home with my children. Upon realizing my purpose in life, I opened my business in 2012 as a Reiki Practitioner and provided Healing Touch within my scope of practice.
I currently am employed full-time at Caring Connections at the Bangor YMCA as a Health Education Specialist, providing cancer prevention education in school and community settings as well as cancer support services. Through this position, I also provide Healing Touch free of charge to Caring Connections members that are undergoing cancer treatments as well as providing Healing Touch to members and non-members of the YMCA for a fee. I find great joy in being able to share the gift of Healing Touch; through Healing Touch sessions as well as educating clients how to use Healing Touch for their own self-care, hosting workshops for the community on Healing Touch, as well as teaching caregivers techniques that can support their loved one at home.
Knowing that educating others about Healing Touch is one of my purposes and passions in life, I look forward to continuing my education to become a HTCP-I as well as mentor.
