There is no way to describe the way being a mom has affected my life. There is nothing I’d rather be and nothing I’d rather do than be mom to my amazing three daughters. They say parents teach their children, but my daughters have actually taught me. They have taught me what matters most in life, they have taught me to slow down, they have taught me to be silly and they have taught me to love unconditionally. They remind me to laugh, to sing, to cry, to play and to just be me. My daughters have helped me to find my true, real self.
I have been married to the same wonderful man for almost twenty years now. Anyone who says marriage is easy can’t be telling the truth. Marriage is a roller coaster of ups and downs and I am just lucky enough that mine has been mostly ups and that I am still loving the ride, especially when my husband wears his baseball cap backwards. Makes my heart pound every time.
Everyday I am grateful to my Angels. I first met my Guardian Angel when I was twenty-one and survived a rare giant brain aneurysm. Angels have been a part of my life ever since and I love sharing and hearing Angel stories. I became a Certified Angel Therapist© in 2011 by Doreen Virtue and Angels have been a part of my daily life ever since.
I grew up in Northfield, Illinois which is still apparent sometimes in my accent in certain words such as “taco” and “Chicago.” I have amazing parents who I am still incredibly close to and a younger brother whom I adore and will always call Davey even though he prefers Dave.
All my life I have been blessed with intuitive gifts but they came to full fruition in 1995 when I survived a rare giant brain aneurysm (grateful always to Dr. Robert Spetzler!) and met my Guardian Angel at my bedside the night before surgery who told me that everything would be ok.
I graduated college from Vanderbilt University and went on to receive my Masters in Journalism from Northwestern University. A career followed in reporting, marketing and journalism, but there was always something else tugging at me and on the side I always was working on and studying my spiritual side and gifts I am blessed to have.
The miracle of motherhood and surviving two bed-rest pregnancies led me once again to focus on my faith in God and Angels. My studying increased and over the years I was blessed to meet many profound spiritual teachers who changed my life. In 2011 I went to Hawaii to study under Doreen Virtue and received my Angel Therapist certification. This same year I started an Angel Therapist practice where many incredible clients blessed my life.
This past year, I decided that as much as I love my clients and my Angel work, that my job as mom was suffering, and thus I decided to close my office and focus on MWA. This is a healing and happy time for me and it is on this site that I will share my stories.
Outside of MWA, I am blessed with loyal, beautiful friends; two labrador retrievers; my parents and brother, two amazing nieces and two awesome nephews. I am lucky to live in the gorgeous state of Colorado where my family and I love to hike, ski and go on family bike rides usually ending with ice cream cones. I love horses, water-skiing, scuba-diving, Caribbean beaches and ANGELS.
