I benefited from Healing Touch Therapy since 2005 from my mentor, spiritual guide and friend; Marilyn Brodie. We met Gina Crosheck through our Study Group at church. We both enjoyed Reiki sessions from Gina early on. After Marilyn’s passing, I continued reiki with Gina. In 2015, Gina asked me to work at the new shop she was opening in Eastdale Plaza. I had been a avid rock hound since my childhood and have an extensive rock and mineral collection. I have always been drawn to the beauty of the earth’s crystal creations. My amateur geology experience helps with working in the shop. As I work in the shop, I research the metaphysical benefits of the crystals. I enjoy finding the right stone, for the right need, for the right person. It is fascinating to watch as the crystal energy soothes, enhances or revitalizes our customers. The crystal energy is so powerful.

In September of 2016, I took my first and Second degree Usui/Holy Fire II class and began a small practice out of my home in Muscatine, Iowa. Then in January of 2018, I completed the Usui/Holy Fire ART/Master level class. I love using crystal grids to enhance my clients experience with Reiki energy along with the use of essential oils.

When I am not at the shop on Thursdays, Open House days or traveling to expos with the PrismsScape team or sharing reiki energy with my clients, I enjoy perennial flower gardening, music, traveling, cuddles with my two cats and quiet times on the deck in my backyard.
