  • Profile and Credentials        

    From the time I could walk, my mother opened up the world of nature to me. She took me on walks in the woods to identify the birds, flowers, trees, and animals. On our walks, I grew in the knowledge of what nature offered people.

    Because of my closeness to animals of all varieties, I could apply their wisdom to my life. From the squirrels in my yard, I learned about saving for a rainy day. From my pet red-eared slider, I learned the value of moving as slowly as a turtle. My small dog, Tiny, taught me how to love and to let go. My parrot, Tweetie, taught me loss and responsibility.

    Nature taught me that there is always room to grow, new things to try, or different perspectives to consider. A lifetime is barely enough time to learn the basics, and only scratches the surface. I am taught by the animals, time, nature, my friends, and my clients that there is always something else to learn.

    Animal Teachers' Services        

    For more info about services, please see this page

    Animal Empowerments
    Animals have gifts that they are willing to offer people. One gift of the animals is their energies to empower people on their journey of life. With their gift, each animal offers their particular help to the person. These gifts range from healing energy to wise counsel. Come and partake of the gifts from the Animals!.

    Pet Readings
    Friendly and compassionate readings for you and your animal friends. Most of the time, we know what our animal friends need and want. However, sometimes our pet’s behavior baffles us. By communicating with them, we can learn how to help our animal companions.

    Find and Reconnect with Your Animal Guides and Teachers
    Be reconnected with your Sacred Spirit Animals. Some animals are companions for life, while other animals are companions for a part of your life journey. Once you are introduced to your Medicine Animals, you will not walk alone.

    Classes on Animal Teachers
    How do you find your Medicine Animals? How do you work with them? Learn how to recognize and learn from your personal, message, and shadow animals. Or do you simply want to know more about them. Take these courses and become closer to the animals.

    Book Catalog
    Add to your understanding of animals. Discover how to recognize what they are telling you. All our books are published by Lulu and are available as e-books or paper backs.
