Hi. My name is Penny and I am a mom of four amazing grown children. I love animals, grew up raising sheep for 4-H, raised and showed champion dogs in another life, and now am owned by 3 lovely kitties and an adopted pound puppy. I am a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist and Spiritual Ministries Healing Touch Practitioner with a private practice in Minnesota.
I’m also a nurse and have worked in geriatrics, Alzheimer’s and dementia hospice, community nursing, and school nursing.
We are an over-medicated, fast-food, fast-paced, stressed-out, impatient, instant gratification, over-diagnosed, fix-it-now, give-me-a-pill society. Our health care system is more of a mess than every, and fixing it seems impossible at this point. I believe that we, as individuals and as a community, must take our own health seriously, and into our own hands. We are riddled with disease and now new ‘dis-eases’ are popping up all the time! It breaks my heart, because I know that with a little alternative care, many, many of these ‘ills’ can be treated naturally if we’d only look at the cause, and look holistically at the whole person.
Hence, my journey into aromatherapy and healing touch. After I started nursing school years ago, I quickly realized that nursing wasn’t quite what I expected. I am a lifelong learner, and studied and became an aromatherapist, and continue to pursue certification in healing touch because one thing I did learn in nursing school was that alternative therapies are real, and are effective. I truly believe that healing takes place when we get to the cause and when we facilitate the body’s innate ability to heal itself.
My passion is to make a difference in the lives of others. I use the techniques I’ve learned in a heart-centered and intentional way to enhance, support and facilitate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and self-healing. My practice is based on creating heart-centered, caring relationships in which you and I come together in a partnership energetically to facilitate your health and healing.
