Just a brief history…
I grew up in Hanover, MA and received my BA in Professional Writing from Emerson College. I moved to Los Angeles and was a Production Assistant on Batman: The Animated Series and Animaniacs, was a development assistant at Hanna-Barbera Cartoons, and an Assistant to the Casting Director on The Weird Al Yankovic Show. I also wrote nine produced episodes Cow and Chicken, Transformers: Beast Wars, and Action Man. After working in Hollywood for several years, I enrolled in the University of Reading in the U.K., where I earned my MA in Medieval Studies.
Upon returning home to the States, I gave an academic paper on the death of Pope Boniface VIII (who, of course as you all know, died in 1303) at the International Congress for Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, MI, where I met my future editor at McFarland Publishers. I pitched the idea of a book on just the DEATHS of the popes, and after submitting several sample chapters to them I received a contract for my book The Deaths of the Popes: Comprehensive Accounts Including Funerals, Burial Places, and Epitaphs (2004).
As a dance teacher, I felt an overwhelming urge to tell my students about their deceased loved ones. Many were grieving the death of their grand parents. I felt their loved one’s presence, and as time passed, these feelings continued to come more often. When I did share my abilities with my students, I was often incredibly surprised at the accuracy of the readings.
After three years of sharing my gift as a medium, I decided to expand what I do and since 2018, I have incorporated my gift into a business that has impacted the lives of many across the United States.
I currently live in Alabama with my high school sweetheart. My life’s purpose is to help those who have experienced a sudden death find meaning in their loss, especially if they did not have the opportunity to say goodbye.
