Certified Aromatherapist • Workshop Facilitator • Licensed Esthetician • M.Ed. Counseling 

I am passionate about sharing research based information concerning the history, science and safe practice of essential oils. 

 I offer professional training material and knowledge that can be uniquely organized for a private workshop or group. I enjoy teaching small groups of oil enthusiasts as well as educating students & licensed professionals. 


Workshops and training are not about selling anything, it's education based. Training sessions share research based data and interactive learning designed for a target audience. Workshops center around formulating an essential oil product with a particular health or emotional focus. 


As an educator, I am committed to providing research based education while promoting the ecological and safe use of essential oils and botanical  ingredients. I have been licensed as a skincare professional since 2017, I am a certified aromatherapist (meaning I have conducted research and completed 265 in person classroom hours of study including chemistry botany anatomy and physiology), I have a masters in counseling and twenty years teaching and facilitating inclusive and active learning environments. 


As a trainer I charge $75 hourly. If we formulate products with essential oils, please anticipate a supply fee. I travel to offices, esthetics & massage schools, and staff retreats. Training topics can be based on a workshop such as Heart healings or customized for groups.
