My educational background is in the field of Speech Language Pathology, having graduated from UW-Madison in 1999. I left the clinical setting as a speech therapist when my first daughter was born, as I strived to provide for her sensory needs and to further explore my own interests in holistic healing. It was during this time that I learned about the healing benefits of energy medicine, specifically healing touch and essential oils, as a means to calm the nervous system and promote self healing. When my second daughter was born with multiple food allergies, I once again went searching for the best way to address her nutritional needs. In 2010, I became certified as a holistic health practitioner at the Academy of Healing Nutrition in NYC.
My journey that once began with helping the communication needs of children with disabilities has transformed into unlocking the energetic communication within the body, allowing for self healing, connected relationships and mindful parenting.
I currently own Divine Roots LLC, a holistic healing practice in the St. Croix Valley, that offers services in healing touch, essential oils, and holistic nutrition..
