The journey of reconnecting to my inner wisdom all began thanks to my daughters. With a Master’s Degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Communicative Disorders, I initially set out to work in the private practice setting. I loved my work as a clinical speech therapist and gained valuable lessons about the richness of language and the power of communication and connection, but felt compelled to do more. So much so that after deep-diving into energy medicine, I left my full-time role as a clinical speech and language pathologist.
You see, shortly after the birth of my first daughter something awoke within me. You often hear people joke about a new mother’s “mama bear instinct…” Well, let me tell you, it’s a real thing and it was this intuition that drove me to find ways to support my individual children's unique sensory and food allergy needs.
At the time, our Western medical model left large gaps when it came to providing the care I felt my children needed in regard to nutrition and soothing their nervous systems. Deeply feeling that there was more to be done, my mama bear instinct spoke loud and clear to me… “When you don’t get answers that sit well with you, listen to this wisdom, and keep going until you do.”
In my efforts to bridge this gap, I discovered the healing benefits of energy medicine and obtained a certificate of completion as a holistic health practitioner from the Academy of Healing Nutrition in New York City in 2010. In 2014, I went on to become a healing touch practitioner. My journey that began with helping children with disabilities communicate evolved into one that helps individuals unlock the energetic communication within the body.
I currently own Divine Roots LLC, a holistic healing practice in the St. Croix Valley, that offers integrative services in healing touch, essential oils, holistic nutrition and mindfulness meditation. I view energy of the body as a language and gently guide individuals to communicate with their energy system to forge a connected relationship to heal. The root of my passion is empowering individuals to connect to their Divine wisdom, self-heal and live their love!
