How did you get into your business, or what motivated you to start it? "I began working with my husband in the electrical construction field about seven years ago, and learned how to move electrical 'energy' through commercial buildings. Knowing how this works interested me. Then, I began to study various methods of energy healing, which involves learning how to move the body's electrical 'energy' for balance and healing purposes. After learning all this, the Chinese art of feng shui seemed to be the next logical step. I wanted to acquire the skills and knowledge of moving 'energy' within a room, a house or a plot of land.


"Feng shui is an awesome skill to use within a home, apartment, room, garden or plot of land to achieve balance and peace within that area and at the same time within ourselves. Feng shui involves using color, form, furniture placement and especially decluttering. It's about letting go of old and making room for new. I think of it as simple magic anyone can do with proper training and intent. The end results are often pretty amazing. Feng shui is purposeful, practical and potent. It's fun and it works."

Previous business experience: Recently graduated from the Western School of Feng Shui in San Diego. Attended advanced studies in 2004. Certified in Usui Reiki, Seichem Reiki and Energy Healing Foundation studies. Also, advanced studies in aromatherapy and hypnotherapy, and ordained as an interfaith minister.
