About Me

I'm originally from Minneapolis, MN and have a mid-western upbringing.  I started my career life with a Bachelors of Science degree in accounting and was a CPA in downtown Minneapolis among the high-rises and hustle and bustle of city life. In 1996, I packed up my bags and headed south. I went back to school in Miami and earned a Associates of Arts degree in Interior Design.  I worked for a high-end interior design firm in Naples starting as an intern and finishing as the Production Director.  In 2008, I left that position and once again turned to academia, this time for a Masters of Fine Arts in Historic Preservation.  By this time I was divorced with 2 little children so I decided to stay home with them as much as possible.  I pursued other interests such as marketing and teaching at the local college but my true calling came when I found the world of holistic healing and particularly, quantum biofeedback.  In 2013 I founded Firefly Within and in 2018 I earned a Bachelors of Science Degree in Holistic Health Sciences from the International Quantum University for Integrative Medicine in Honolulu, Hawaii. 

And the journey continues......
