Certified Aromatherapist • Workshop Facilitator • Licensed Esthetician • M.Ed.Counseling • Photographer
I'll mention the photography on the website is my own. I keep a camera in my hand when I walk, hike or travel. The beauty of nature humbles me, allows me a moment to pause and see the patterns unfolding before my eyes. The beauty I see all around this living planet is something I strive to share with you, whether you are browsing the website, or we are sharing time together.
I have a passion for our planet, specific to the preservation of sacred trees and sustainable, ecologically responsible harvesting for essential oils and skincare ingredients, which is paramount to my practice. It is my intent to share a level of enthusiasm for these amazing plants and their oils that offer deep healing both on the emotional and physical plane.
My professional platform for learning began in social services as an advocate, counselor and educator. I left the field in 2016, to pursue a license as a natural esthetician and fell in love with the ingredients used in skincare and the science behind the botanical properties. This led me to a deeper connection with the plants and my studies in aromatherapy, where I completed a level one certification. In 2019, I became certified in death midwifery to deepen my understanding of the death process, so I might extend aromatic and sensory support at end of life. In fall 2021, I began studies to become ordained an Animist Minister with the Web of Life Church, www.weboflifeanimists.com.
I invite you to check out my resource page if you are seeking further information on philosophical musings, skincare & aromatherapy resources. You will also find resources addressing systemic oppression. My roots are invested in the belief that we humans are one part of a living universe, there are many of us sharing space and time in this collective reality, and all of us here (including plants and animals) have worth and value in this experience of life we all share.
