I am a professional Tarot & Lenormand card reader, psychic medium, & published multi-award-winning visionary artist & author with over 35 years of experience. I have been practicing Wicca since 1980, am also a Reiki master-teacher, & the exclusive channel for the Clear Iridescent Energy Ray (CIER) of Archangel Michael, whom I have been channeling since 1996.
My academic background consists of a BA in Anthropology from Northwestern University (1985), MA in Anthropology from the University of California in Santa Barbara (1989), and a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Latin American Studies from the University of Texas, Austin (1996). My work has been published a number of times within my field, which is the study of the socio-political organization, spirituality, epigraphy, and iconography of the Classic Maya civilization.
Spiritually, I was raised Catholic, but left the Church the day of my confirmation due to the fact that my priest was unable to answer very simple questions and I was expected to believe in what I was told, but my parents had raised me to have a mind of my own. I discovered Wicca in 1976 and dedicated myself to the Goddess and the God on Beltane, 1980. I have been practicing Wicca ever since. I resonate best with the Egyptian Aspects of Deity, but I also work with Mother Mary, Archangel Michael, & Jesus Christ. I have been psychic my entire life and am self-taught with regards to reading Tarot cards. I actually found my first tarot deck in the trash after my mother grew frustrated and threw her deck and book out. When I asked if I could have them she said, “knock yourself out, but they don’t work.” I devoured the book in two days and within a week I was reading her cards for her! The rest, as they say, is history.
Professionally, I have been reading Tarot since 1976 and professionally since 1995. I have been reading Lenormand cards since 2010. I created a Lenormand deck for my own use and self-published The Egyptian Lenormand in 2013. It was later mass-published by Schiffer Books in 2015. The Egyptian Lenormand differs from all other Lenormand card decks in a number of respects. The images are all channeled from the Egyptian gods with Whom I work (with the sole exception of the Child card). The artistic mediums I used to create the images and the original images themselves from which the deck was created all received Reiki master degree attunements, plus additional positive energy so that when properly activated following a ceremony detailed in the 176-page accompanying guidebook, the cards for The Egyptian Lenormand can also be used for healing and magic, in addition to divination/fortune telling. Everyone who purchases a deck from me receives it signed, attuned to both Reiki and CIER, plus I take it through the activation ceremony so it arrives ready to be used not just for divination, but also for healing and magical manifestation.
The Egyptian Lenormand was very well received and is the recipient of several prestigious awards:
- Lenormand Deck of the Year, 2015 from the American Tarot Association & Tarot Reflections
- Lenormand/Kipper Deck of the Year, 2015 from The International Tarot Foundation CARTA Awards
- Best First-Work by an Illustrator (Nefer Khepri), 2015 from The International Tarot Foundation CARTA Awards

I self-published my second Lenormand deck, The Turtle Lenormand in 2015, simply because I dearly love turtles. I followed up The Turtle Lenormand with my first oracle deck of all channeled material, Guidance & Inspiration From the Angelic Realm (2017). Copies of both decks are still available for order. I ship worldwide.
Currently, I am working on a grand total of two tarot decks, two oracle decks, and another Lenormand deck. I am always busy so am never bored. My favorite thing to do is to create art. Please follow me on Instagram to see photos of my in-progress work.
Personally, I was born and raised an only child in northern Illinois along the shore of Lake Michigan. If you follow me on Facebook you will quickly discover that I am a huge fan of the World Champion Chicago Cubs. I am proud to be a third generation fan & I raised my daughter to be a fourth generation fan. I am married to a wonderful man whom I met while a doctoral graduate student at UT-Austin. We have one daughter about to complete high school who is the member of three national honor societies. She was just accepted into the Honors Program at her chosen college & has been granted a scholarship. We are incredibly proud of her, to say the least. We have a crazy Chartreux cat who loves to attack me and make me scream. She is a true joy and such a little character. We all live in Houston, Texas.
