I've  been receiving uncannily accurate intuitive impressions and have been in contact with the world of Spirit since I was a teenager.  Like many intuitives and mediums, I did my best to hide my abilities from a world that often misunderstands them. When I was in my early 20's a seemingly chance encounter with a local medium and Pastor of a Metaphysical church made clear to me that these abilities were not going to "go away," and that I was meant to use them.

That pastor, Rev DJ Guerra (now in the world of spirit) of Harmony Metaphysical Church, Tampa, soon became my first intuitive development mentor and after a year of mentorship and training, I was providing intuitive services for the church.  I continued to honor Spirit by making my services available to the public (working out of local metaphysical shops and taking phone appointments) while still maintaining a certain level of purposeful anonymity. I touched the lives of countless individuals (both clients and students) over the next 20 years.  Then, ten years ago I received a clear and insistent "call" from the world of Spirit to do the work on a broader basis so that I could help more people. Which also meant that I had to come out of hiding!

In addition to my intuitive and coaching work, I love to write! I'm a multi-award-winning author of Paranormal Romance (both traditionally and independently published) through Dorchester Publishing (sadly, now defunct), Amazon Montlake, Running Press, and my own imprint, Messages From Your Muse.


I'm the CEO of Messages From Your Muse, LLC,  creator of the one-of-a-kind Tea with a Medium® events and The Call of the Raven® Intuitive Development Course. 


Because of my long-time fascination with the corvid family of birds (especially ravens), friends and clients have dubbed me "The Raven Queen." Why ravens? Besides the fact that they've followed me around since I was a kid, there is so much about this beautiful, intelligent creature that inspires me. Raven represents transformation, casting shadows into light, rebirth and renewal, keen observation, and far-seeing sight. Some cultures consider raven a messenger of the mysteries, walker between the worlds, and bringer of magic. My life's calling is to help others transform, grow, and see their inner magic by learning to tap into their own intuitive sight. Raven is the perfect companion for that journey. 


Having been raised in an extremely strict religion, I understand better than most people just how fear can impact us when it comes to this kind of work. I'm a truly empathetic and nurturing guide to those looking for intuitive guidance, to connect with their loved ones on the other side, or students wishing to deepen their own intuition.


I grew up in Wisconsin, the 4th of 9 children. My favorite thing in the world (besides being a mom) is helping others connect with their inner spirit, the great Spirit, and their loved ones on the Other Side. 


I believe the best intuitives, mediums, and coaches make their training and education a priority and never stop developing themselves. And yes, I'm a perpetual student. Below is some (but not all) of the training I have received. Over the past 25+ years, I have served  thousands through both individual and group readings, events, and classes. This is the work of my heart. It's my true joy, and I look forward to sharing it with you soon!
