I feel that bios
should be called the I-Page--I this, I that. It's a little
embarrassing, but necessary for people that want to know who
the heck you are and what you do. So, here is my I-Page.
I was born in an Army hospital
and raised on Air Force Bases. I'm from everywhere and nowhere--I
lived a lot of places when I was young and never did find
one to call home. This gypsy lifestyle suited my Sagittarian
nature so I continued changing my address and my interests
for many years. I designed clothes, worked in the film business,
was often a temporary secretary, edited a magazine, co-wrote
and edited several books.
Animals were the one constant
in my life. I loved them, felt a kinship with them, and
somehow knew what they needed. Though I had never heard
of animal communication, I could tell people things about
their animal companions. In 1990, I found my home in rural
North Carolina and a myriad of animals began to teach me.
Not long afterward, I discovered a book by Penelope Smith
and realized that animal communication was a real thing
and that many people were doing it. I took workshops in
animal communication from Dawn Hayman and Penelope Smith.
I have been working professionally
as an Animal Communicator since 1996. I offer telephone
consultations for animals and their people and teach Beginning
and Advanced Workshops to humans to open their own lines
of communication with animals and nature, and to assist
us to restore our connection to All That Is.
I am a Reiki Master and offer
Reiki Attunements as well as hands-on and long-distance
healing for animals and people.
I am Founder and President of
Hummingbird Farm, a nonprofit corporation dedicated to deepening
the understanding, respect, communication, and relationship
between all living beings and the natural world around us.
I am author of Opening
My Wings to Fly, which chronicles my journey of learning
from animals how to live and walk in balance with all of
I am doing the work I've been
searching for all of my life. I intend to continue my journey
of consciousness with my animal teachers and to write about
it and share it with others. I am blessed to be doing this
work and I am ever grateful for it.
