I knew from a very young age that I was meant to help people. I knew this at such a deep level that I decided early that all of the bad things that I experienced were happening so that I could use my experiences to help others.

In 2005, at the age of 27, I lost my Mother in a car accident.  That was my first real experience with death.  I tend to say I am grateful that she died instantly, she never experienced pain and my Dad didn't have to go through the process of making any impossible decisions.  However, I also never got to say goodbye.  I am grateful I have a foot in the spiritual realm, because I still get to communicate with her despite her not being on this physical plane.

In 2013, my dear friend came out of remission from breast cancer.  She knew she would not endure the treatment again yet never told her family she was sick again. One day she went into the hospital for surgery because she wasn't breathing properly. Only a couple of us knew her cancer had returned.  When she came out of surgery, she immediately went into crisis.  I was there at the hospital with her fighting for what I knew she wanted and didn't want.  I remember clear as day what the doctor said to me that night after she asked why my friend hadn't seen a doctor.  She said, "I hope if I am ever in a situation like this, that I have a friend that will fight for me the way you have".  I sat with my friend that evening as we took her off of the machines and she left the physical world. I knew then I had a different relationship with death.  

Then, in 2020, just a month before the pandemic hit, our Dad had a heart attack and was rushed to the hospital.  I knew when I arrived he wouldn't be leaving.  I spent 4 days in the hospital with him, advocating for him, ensuring he knew he no longer had to fight for the sake of his daughters.   I learned then that having the chance to say goodbye doesn't make losing a parent any easier, just different.  My dad's death also taught me how important it is to have our final wishes in order much earlier in life.  Having to make decisions for him without any written wishes took away my ability to truly be WITH him.  That is why I push so hard for my clients to have their advanced directives done.  Everyone over the age of 18 should have them regardless of health status. We learned that the hard way.

I have a long-held belief that death is hardest for the people who are left behind. The truth about death is that it is the ultimate healing.  Once we begin freely speaking about death, and our fears around it, we can create space to have a more peaceful passing... and a more fulfilled life.

On a Personal Note

First and foremost, I am a daughter.  I know that both of my parents are looking down on me, and I strive to make them proud every day.  I am a kid sister to two amazing women who I love more than anything. I am the human parent to a diverse group of pets, including three cats, a dog, and a Sonoran desert tortoise.

In my spare time, I love to read, create art and spend time with my family.  I get excited about creating new crystal-infused products to support others in their journey to wellness.

Rose of Sharon Wellness is a lifetime dream finally realized and manifested through an amazing Reiki session.

I spent years going through the motions of life in the way that I thought I was supposed to.  Solid career, great work ethic, and living for work.  Or was I dying?  You see, our bodies know what our hearts refuse to speak.  I was on the wrong path, doing what I thought other people expected of me rather than what I knew I was meant to do, and it was showing up in my physical body.  When I finally let go of those expectations through my own healing process, it not only became clear, it started unfolding naturally.

I have always had a passion for the "woo woo."  The crystals, the spirituality, the energy, the intuition, the metaphysical, the meditation, all of it.  That passion came from my mother, who experimented with all the things and who instilled in me the beliefs that anything is possible, that we are all connected, and always to be kind.

Rose of Sharon Wellness is a tribute to and in honor of my mother, Sharon, whose favorite flower was the hibiscus.  Sharon's legacy lives on through all three of her daughters, and through this work, I know that I am honoring everything she ever wanted for me.
