About the Author

As a child, I often knew things that others didn’t seem to know. I often questioned what others told me. What I experienced did not seem to be “normal.” Because I didn’t understand what I was experiencing, and the adults in my life didn’t either, I learned to hide that part of myself. This was an attempt to make me feel safe, protected, and accepted. I started trusting more what others were telling me rather than my own inner knowing. Over time, this led to a deep divide in my spirit—a disconnection between the person I was and my true spiritual nature.

I went to college where I studied business, began my career, and had children. All the while, I was often bombarded with images and feelings from the world beyond. I did not understand this and did my best to keep it at bay. I became anxious and unsettled. By the time I was in my late 20’s, I was having full blown panic attacks. This led to the practice of meditation. It allowed me to turn off my mind and go within. After many years of reflection, a few years of therapy, and a yearning to understand myself, I finally learned that what I was experiencing was the ability to communicate with the unseen world of spirit. This is when my whole life changed. I began to understand that what I had seen, heard, and experienced was normal for a person with intuitive and mediumistic abilities.

It was time to be myself. It was time to trust what I was getting from the unseen world and my own intuition. I began taking classes, reading whatever I could get my hands on, and went to workshops to better understand my abilities. I trained as a certified Reiki healer, intuitive life coach, and medium. This has become my life’s work.

By nature I am a logical and pragmatic person, yet I have this spiritual side too. I really had to learn how to allow both of these sides to integrate into who I am today. I understand now that I am always connected no matter how I chose to live in the world. Sometimes I am a life coach, a medium, a photographer, a business owner, a wife, a mom, a friend, an author, a healer, and much more. But mostly I am part of the human experience—an experience that includes the unseen world of spirit.

My book Words of Life: Messages for a Path to Inner Peace was forged from my studies, deep meditation, and my connection to the spirit world. I want others to understand that by honoring and expressing their true self, they too will find their path to inner peace. I hope that this book brings comfort and healing to others. I hope it sparks conversations about what it means to be yourself. I hope it will make you think about your own life and how you are choosing to express your truth.
