I come from a long line of mediums and energy healers. I was born down the road from a small town in New York called Lily Dale, a mecca for Spiritualists. And a mecca for me; I have returned there nearly every summer of my life. But I grew up a typical kid in a happy home - actually, many happy homes as my father's career in retail management meant our family moved households twelve times before I was graduated from high school.
I received a bachelor’s degree in English and Political Science from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. I gained extensive corporate experience in telecommunications and information technology as a technical writer, training course developer, and quality assurance manager.
In fact, it was the stresses of juggling motherhood and a successful professional career that brought me to learn meditation and life-coaching skills in 1996. My extraordinary experiences with meditation and the power of intention led me to further studies of metaphysical and spiritual subjects that ultimately resulted in a career change of a higher order.
I became a certified clairvoyant medium, certified spiritual healer, and ordained Spiritualist minister through Fellowships of the Spirit in Lily Dale, New York, in 2006. That same year I founded INNER COMPASS, an intuitive life-coaching practice based in Cincinnati, Ohio. Since then I have helped thousands of people to create fabulous and fulfilling lives for themselves by using their inner wisdom in everyday situations.
I have coached people to navigate major life changes, explore their spiritual path, use their intuition, find meaningful work, cultivate fulfilling relationships, and experience healing. I have led workshops on meditation, mediumship development, creative manifestation, and other metaphysical disciplines.
In 2012, I created an extensive certification program of mediumship development, the Mediumship Mastery Program. At the same time, I established Inner Compass Academy to further the educational focus that Inner Compass has had since its inception. The academy has featured many renowned instructors over the years, most notably Rose Vanden Eynden, Chad Seibert, Victor Paruta, Sharon Anne Klingler, Sandra Anne Taylor, Martie Hughes, Sherry Lee Calkins, Gretchen Clark, Virginia Collins, and the late Jaccolin Franchina.
As you might expect, I have become highly skilled in balancing the practical and the inspirational, the logical and the intuitive, the material and the spiritual. My intuitive approach to life coaching is unique and gets to the truth of a matter with amazing, higher-self-driven insights and results. I am passionate about teaching; I love to share the concepts and practices I have successfully applied in my own life and in sessions with clients. I also love to learn, and am continually studying new ideas and advanced practices.
I am blessed to have a supportive family and loved ones who help me to appreciate life. I enjoy walks in nature, music, and creative projects. I also enjoy getting to know people, so I hope you will contact me and tell me about you!
