Through my own path of self discovery and healing, I found Reiki and immediately felt a strong connection to the practice. I am currently certified through Reiki level II and plan to receive my Master training this spring. Through Reiki Offering, I hope to allow others to reconnect to their inner guidance, empower them to heal past traumas, and instill a peaceful mindset.
Since I was younger, my biggest passion has been being around horses. These animals have taught me so much about empathy, about showing up and about being real. On the weekends, I teach therapeutic horseback riding for a non profit based in Long Island. At this farm, children and adults come to learn, heal and grow. As I continue my practice, I intend to incorporate Reiki while working with horses. My second passion is the power of storytelling. I believe that stories, and empowering voices of under represented populations, can change the world. My full time job is as a producer/documentary filmmaker for Vice Media. In 2016, I traveled to India and directed a documentary about gender testing in female athletes which was accepted into multiple film festivals including the United Nations Film Festival. I also created a series for the Olympic Channel profiling the stories of transgender athletes called Identify.
My dream for the future is to own a piece of land where I can have a herd of horses. I plan to host healing and creative retreat programs where people can experience healing with animals surrounded by a beautiful landscape.
I am beyond grateful to Glowing Heart Reiki for guiding me along this journey. I am so excited to share this practice with you!
