Alchemy began for me as a child growing up in central Illinois. I would create infusions with botanicals found walking in the woods, forgaging in fields and in my garden. In 1998 I created my botanical beauty company, launching stores in Boston and Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
Now I show students how to create their own indie beauty products and encourage them through their transformational journey.
I graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a B.A. in Journalism, worked in corporate as a market research analyst for Forrester Research and have 20 years experience as an organic, indie beauty formulator. I am also a Reiki Master and shamanic energy healer. I see/feel beyond 3D thinking and into the formless of 5D and beyond. It's an interesting life!
