From a very young age, I always wanted to help others feel better. I grew up in a family that owned and operated a funeral home and had many opportunities to see others dealing with grief. It allowed me to cultivate a deep compassion for those who were grieving.
As I grew older, becoming a funeral director didn’t become my first career choice. I decided to study at The Ohio State University to receive my Bachelor’s in the Science of Education. I was passionate about the French language and decided to become a French teacher. As I taught for many years, I also received a Master’s Degree in Teaching.
In 2001, I began studying Holistic Healing and meditation after being introduced to it in Croatia while living overseas. I then studied Reiki in California for 4 years and became a Master Teacher.
In 2010, I began a career as a State Tested Nurse aid and worked in nursing homes and with home health agencies. While working in nursing, I found myself compelled to help the grieving and often found myself doing so naturally. I sat with the dying and felt completely comfortable in doing so.
Years later I began volunteering with hospice. I currently volunteer in the Bereavement Department and sit with and hold space for the dying.
I have recently been certified as a Master Grief Coach and am now ready to begin a new stage in my life where I may help others heal.
It is a true blessing to have the opportunity to be a human being on this planet. It is normal to grieve, but not to unpack your bags in the land of sorrow. Allow me to listen to you compassionately and to give you the tools you need to continue your life journey as you heal and put the pieces back together.
