I came into this world as the first of seven children born to loving and supportive parents. Being the oldest, I learned about integrity, work ethic, high standards, and expectations for myself. I grew up, lived, studied, and worked in Nebraska until 1971 when I moved to Colorado with my first husband to teach high school Spanish and English. The beauty of the mountains and Estes Park attracted us in our search of self discovery.
A mutual love of travel ignited a healthy relationship of over 32 years with my current husband, Jim. He supports me, encourages me, and allows me to be the Light that I Am. Together we’ve explored South America, where we married at Machu Picchu. We continued our travels into Central America and Mexico, New Zealand, and Europe. The tranquility and peace of Alamos, Sonora, Mexico drew us to purchase a lovely home there. As we enjoyed 12 winters there, I immersed myself in the Mexican culture and service work. Alamos, enchanting place that it is, attracted me the moment we entered town: The charm of the colonial architecture, the small town atmosphere where everyone is friendly and open encouraged us to stay, along with the beauty of the surrounding mountains and the peace and tranquility. Fond memories of hikes, social gatherings, fundraising for Amigos de Educacion de Alamos and Comadres bring a smile to my face, as a parade of wonderful characters walks before me.
Not everyone is “brave” enough to venture into Mexico or even buy property and live there. But that makes the “gringos” that do so a very interesting and eclectic group of people. It’s a gathering place for the more adventuresome and curious. Alamos attracts GREAT women, and I will always hold a special place in my heart for the dear friends I met there. And even today I count them in my “special people” category!
I found the time, energy and courage to begin my career in energy medicine, healing, and the sharing of my knowledge in Alamos. Today I look back at those beginning times and am amazed at how much has transpired, and how we have all shifted and changed.
Another learning experience during this time, breast cancer, prompted me to heal myself and, after a promise to help others, I began my quest to assist others. And now 25 years later I’m still sharing my time and energy with clients and working with another wonderful scholarship program.
We currently reside in San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico. My strong connection to nature guided me here (plus my husband’s love of the water, boating, and fishing) to learn from and play with the whales and dolphins, as well as understand the strength, power, and flow of water. The constant flow of energy and synchronicities permit me to seek what calls me and follow to where I’m guided.
