9 years ago I woke up feeling like I had the flu. I had a fever, I had a really bad headache, and I was just really sick and miserable. This was becoming my normal. I rolled over and I was looking at my nightstand and all the medications – there were 8 of them. I just thought, “There has got to be a better way to live, there has got to be a better way to do this.” I sat up and started to cry uncontrollably. In that moment I cried out to God, “I don’t care if I have 5 days or 50 years to live, I don’t want to do it this way.” “What do I need to do?” An answer came immediately, “Go off all your medications.” “I’ll show you what to do.” So, I took a leap of faith. And that was the beginning of my journey that lead me to where I am today.
I was “sick and tired” of being “sick and tired” in every aspect of my life. I instinctively knew there was a better way to live than what I was experiencing. I was attending the University of Hard Knocks. I didn’t graduate, because I chose to drop out! I woke up one day and realized that I didn’t have to learn everything the hard way, (that was a course I kept re-enrolling in for some reason), I decided that I needed to reclaim my power and take responsibility for the life that I had created. I was diagnosed with MS (Multiple Sclerosis) 10 years ago. As a result of taking responsibility, I have been drug free and symptom free for the last 6 years. I am passionate about igniting the power inside of people who are dealing with chronic illness to reclaim and own their power and in taking responsibility for their health and ultimately the life they Live.
I am the creator and owner of New Healing Harmonies Inc. My business motto is “I Lift You and You Lift Me and We Ascend Together”.

I believe that our bodies are amazing, miraculous tools in helping us recognize the aspects of ourselves that are hindering the Mind, Body, Soul, connection. I understand the importance of bringing those three aspects of who we are together. I believe we are all powerful beings, capable of taking the challenges we face in our lives and turning them into strengths, all while having Joy in Our Journey. To help others find joy and health in their journey I wrote and published my book, ‘The Gift of Disease…End Your Struggle with Chronic Illness’.
When I’m not working, you’ll find me outdoors riding my bike, with my nose buried in a book, or just hanging out with my husband of 29 years, Blaine, and my 4 amazing sons!
