Her story is unique and has been filled with many challenges along the way. During her early teens, she developed major ear problems that resulted in surgery during December of 1977. During her hospital stay she had an experience that changed her perspective of life and death. She never shared the details of her out of body experience until she met her husband. He was the first person with whom she felt safe enough to share her truth. It was his acceptance and unconditional love that gave her the security to find peace with her gifts. As a result, she made a commitment to use her connection to the Great Beyond only in ways that brought honor to the gift.
From as far back as she can remember she has always had conversations with her "wise friends on the other side." It was the private relationship she had with her Spirit Guides that helped her stay positive and optimistic amidst the drama, isolation and chaos in her childhood home and, in the process, embrace the highest level of thought.
She attended the New Seminary in New York City and was ordained an Interfaith Minister, June 1998, at St. John the Divine Cathedral. She was inspired by the founder, Rabbi Joseph Gelberman and his philosophy to learn other faiths "never instead of, always in addition to."
When she was ordained a Minister, she made a vow to walk the path with honor and integrity choosing to follow the motto of St. Francis, "Make me an Instrument of Peace."
