Name of Your Business
How Does Your Work Enable You to Connect to and Fulfill Your Life Purpose/Passion?
I am passionate about helping others find ways to support themselves physically, emotionally, and spiritually. When I meet with someone one-on-one or in a class I am able to connect with them on a personal level and answer their questions about essential oils, but more importantly I guide them in following their own intuition when it comes to choosing essential oils for their individual needs.
Who Is Your Ideal Client and Why?
My ideal client is someone who is ready to learn about essential oils and use them in a safe manner.
What Unique Offerings Do You Provide?
I offer individual aromatherapy consultations and educational classes.
Who Was Your Role Model Growing Up? How Did That Person’s Actions Impact You?
My role model growing up was my grandmother. She taught me that even when life does not go as planned you can still live it to its fullest.
Favorite Place to Escape and Refuel?
The mountains of Vermont! It is where I grew up and where I feel most at peace.

How Do You Express Yourself Creatively?
This has changed so many times over the years, but currently it is drawing & painting.
Last Memorable Book You Read and Why?
Abundantly Well: The Complementary Integrated Medicine Revolution by Susun Weed. It is a great reference book for anyone who is at a crossroad on how to handle their own health challenge. I like how Susun offers thought provoking questions to help one decide whether or not to seek medical help or if a more holistic approach will be best. I have read many health related books, but what I like best about this one is that it combines both natural and allopathic information in one place.
Favorite Movie and Why?
Stardust. It is a great reminder that sometimes what you are looking for is right in front of you, but you may be too focused on how you think it should look that you miss it.
“Go to” Quote or Mantra that Grounds You?
Mine is very simple but works great. “Breathe”
Accomplishment Are You Most Proud of?
I am most proud of standing up for what I thought was best for my boys and homeschooling them. It was not an easy decision because in the beginning I did not know anyone else who was doing this and I got a lot of negative reactions when I would tell people my plan. We are going into our 7th year and it is one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Best Lesson Learned in Life So Far?
Life is precious and can be taken away at any time. It is important to live life now and not wait for the “some day”.
Advice to Younger Self?
It is ok to show vulnerability.
What Do You Love Best About Yourself (physical trait or personality characteristic) and Why?
That I can love unconditionally & see the best in people. Because of this I have met many wonderful souls that I may have otherwise passed by.
