My heart-felt desire and calling to heal has been ever present since I was nine and my father felt the healing touch flowing through him as I spontaneously put my hand on a painful place on his leg. My hands were an extension of my heart and even at that young age healing came naturally to me. Initially, I followed this calling as an Intensive Care pediatric nurse, caring for the young patients and guiding their grieving parents and family members. This role took a personal turn when in my twenties my father became terminally ill. I used all my training and experience to care for him each day as he moved toward the end of his life in body form. It was this transformational process that I experienced as a spontaneously arising relationship with Spirit – a presence which continues to guide me to this day.
