Master Level Reiki Practitioner/Teacher and Animal Communicator
A LIFETIME LOVE OF DOGS
My first pet was a collie whom my parents adopted before I was a year old. He was the pillow for my toddler head, my protector, and started my life-long love affair with dogs. My adult journey has taken many side roads, but dogs have been my constant companions. My initial Reiki training was working with people. After online Animal Reiki training with Kathleen Prasad, co-author of ANIMAL REIKI, I worked at the local humane society for a year and a half. During that time, I discovered the gift of being able to communicate with animals and my penchant for rescuing canines.
A DIFFERENT BREED OF SANCTUARY
In March 2008, I established Quantum Canines dog rescue and sanctuary to assist dogs with health, behavior and other concerns not easily handled in a shelter or "normal" home environment. I have continued to learn other methods of using energy to help the body heal, including QiGong, EFT/tapping, and Eden Energy Medicine. I also recently completed an animal communication course with Val Heart, internationally known as the "Real Life Dr Doolittle and Animal Communicator to the Stars."
BOOKS I'VE WRITTEN
In 2014, I published a metaphysical book about my journey with dogs entitled, I Want to Have the Heart of a Dog. Two of my fiction books also feature dogs as prominent characters, with more books planned in that series.
ME & MY DOGGIE HERD
Eight dogs currently reside with me at our city sanctuary, where we grow vegetables in our backyard, enjoy home-cooked meals, and snuggle in our huge, wall-to-wall bed at night. We are looking for acreage where we can become as self-sufficient as possible, and share the joy of energy healing and animal communication with others who want a closer bond with animals and nature.
