I was born in Midland Ontario, the fourth of five children. I graduated from the University of Western Ontario in 1981 with a B.A. in Economics and Sociology. I worked as a manager for a telecommunications company for over 30 years. I live in the Westmount area of London Ontario. I am happily married with 2 children who are currently pursuing their post secondary education.
I began my study of Reiki in 2005 taking my First Degree. I practiced Reiki on myself and with a friend but I felt at a loss somehow. Although a felt a strong connection to the Reiki energy and I used it on myself daily, I wanted and needed more. I decided to take my Second Degree yet still I had so many questions and felt like I was alone in my pursuit of further understanding of what Reiki can do and how I could use it.
I finally found the missing link I needed to help me move forward with my understanding and confidence with using Reiki. I was given the opportunity to join a student practice night. I knew from that night that I had found what I had been missing. This community of fellow Reiki practitioners and instructor provided the opportunity to practice Reiki, share experiences and to support one another on our Reiki journey.
The sense of community and the learning that takes place during practice nights played a significant role in the development of my understanding and connection to the Reiki energy. I want to ensure that all of my students have the same opportunity. Teaching others how to do Reiki is a big focus of my practice and I have regularly scheduled classes and practice nights. I also have set up a lending library of books that I have gathered over the years that my students are welcome to borrow and read as they too pursue thier Reiki journey.
During the past 6 years I have completed all Reiki Degrees, at least twice, studying with 4 different teachers. I have also completed my Karuna Reiki® master level, and classes in Dowsing and other healing therapies. I have been guided and encouraged to open my own clinic and to provide people with the opportunity to not only recieve Reiki treatments but to learn how to do it for themselves and others. Another tool in their toolkit to help them attain and retain their health and vitality.
My goal is to ensure that Reiki is accessible to all. I pledge to work closely with and for my cients and students, providing guidance and support to help them attain health and happiness.
