My Story

My Personal Story 

I have always been inspired by environments. As a child I created secret hideaways in the forest, nests in fields of tall grass, and clubhouses in garage rafters. These spaces spoke to my soul. While I was there minutes spread into hours. 

As an adult my passion for environments found a perfect home as I pursued a career in Montessori education. One of the tenets of Montessori philosophy is the importance of the prepared environment in nurturing human development. My twenty-five years of exploring these principles with young children and adolescents has instilled an understanding of the importance of a properly prepared environment for all of us, not just our children. In order to thrive we each need an environment that nurtures us and supports our unfolding life. 

In 2001 everything in my life was poised for a change. I didn't know it, but the first event happened when a book on clearing clutter crossed my path. The ideas resonated deeply. Especially exciting was the understanding that our homes are living beings and our possessions are energetically connected to us. I used the tools in the book within my own home. The results were immediate and dramatic. I felt lighter and happier. Friends and acquaintances asked if I'd lost weight (I hadn't) and said that I looked younger. One friend noticed that the house felt different. He asked if I'd remodeled or repainted all of my rooms. In fact, I had simply reorganized all of the closets! These results got my attention and I began to study Feng Shui in earnest. 

The past 10 years have brought remarkable changes to my life. In 2003 I pursued studies in Classical Feng Shui and explored other healing modalities such as Reiki, Dowsing, and Space Clearing. In 2004 I started my business, Fundamental Feng Shui, and in 2006 completed the transition from my teaching career in Montessori education to pursue my work as a healer full time.  

One of the most remarkable parts of my journey has been the expansion of my relationship to my larger Self, and my experience as a multi-sensory being. As my connection with Source and my intuitive abilities have developed, I have experienced a deeper relationship with with my own guidance system, as well as my ability to experience other realms and dimensions of time and space. My relationship with the Earth has also deepened. All of this brings a great deal of joy to my life. This expanded awareness and perception has become a central aspect to my life, both personally and professionally. I have come to understand that we are all here to expand more fully into our larger, deeper Selves, and it is my deepest joy to share this expansion with my clients.
