Were you born and raised in Boston? If not, what brought you here?

No. I was born and raised in Connecticut, moved here to attend graduate school for acupuncture, then decided to stay to open my business.

Tell us more about your job or company and what led you to your career?

I started out as an English teacher, and after two years decided that I hated it. On a whim, I applied for a graduate program in acupuncture. I opened a practice in Wayland, and after a year I decided that hypnotherapy would be a perfect blend with acupuncture. I got certified in hypnotherapy, and started combining it with my acupuncture sessions. My business grew and I expanded into a larger space, which turned out to have some sort of negative entity in it. I didn't understand that world, so I ignored it until I couldn't stand it anymore, and started seeking help. In my search, I began to discover a whole new world of healers, readers, and psychics. Meeting all of these gifted practitioners ended up bringing me to where I am today: curating mystical events with all types of magical, metaphysical practitioners that I have vetted and researched.

What would your clients say about you and your company?

The energy of my business, space, and connection with clients is uplifting and transformative. Clients love the sense of connection and community that is an intrinsic part of my business, and they always talk about how much they love that my business is ever-changing. There is always something new to look forward to when they visit.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

People respect you and your business more when they are trained to meet your boundaries and rules. You must be consistent with setting boundaries.

What is your favorite book?

The 48 Laws of Power

What is your secret weapon? An app, a tool, a organization method, anything?! (Can be a personal or professional life tool)

My ability to transmute negativity into fuel for reaching higher. The more negative things I hear from competitors, the more I push myself to surpass my past achievements.

What is your most recent WIN? How are you slaying it in your career or business?

I was just informed that I won the Business Person of the Year award in Sudbury, MA!

What advice would you give to your younger self?

You won't even recognize the person you are right now in a year, so stop dwelling on the pain you're experiencing in this moment.

How do you enjoy your free time?

Random road trips. I just hop in my car and drive to somewhere secluded, go hiking or walking for hours, then treat myself to a great meal with great wine. I love my spending free time in solitude.

What is something that not many people know about you?

I've always wanted to be a mortician. That was my original plan in life, but I ended up transitioning due to my love of writing.
