I hold degrees from the University of California Santa Barbara (BA Religious Studies, Phi Beta Kappa, 2002) and Naropa University (MDiv, 2017). I have been a devoted practitioner of a lineage within the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism since 2001, and I hold the endorsement of this Buddhist lineage for my practice of professional chaplaincy. I have been a Reiki master practitioner since 2013 and a professional chaplain since 2018. In addition to my Reiki healing and spiritual coaching practice, I work as a hospice chaplain in rural North Dakota.
By combining academic study, professional training, decades of intensive contemplative spiritual practice and personal experience, I am here to mentor and cheer you on in healing and crafting your very best life!
