I am passionate about helping others enjoy their journey toward Tranquility; a body in balance, a mind at ease and a satisfied soul. I am also passionate about empowering families with knowledge and tools to create vibrant future generations.
I moved to Ely in July of 2015, with my husband and our son, to improve an important area of my life, family and relationships! Ours, my husbands and mine, needing some nurturing. Moving to an area that fed both our interests was an important step that has helped tremendously. It also helped eliminate distractions that were making it too easy to avoid giving it the attention it needed.
I grew up on a fruit and vegetable farm in Western Ny. I loved the freedom of wandering through the orchards back to our small woodlot to hang out with my plant friends. I wanted to know the name of each flower that greeted me on my path. When my Mother reached her limits of knowledge she gifted me the Golden Guide to Wildflowers one Valentine’s Day.
My interest in plants ended up following me to college where I studied Horticulture and loved the course I took on Wildflowers. Several years later my husband and I settled in a town with an herbalist offering a monthly study group after attending for a year I found myself wanting to learn more. I signed up for Rosemary Gladstar’s Apprenticeship program and received my home study course on Valentine’s Day – I took this as a sign that I was on the right path.
The Apprenticeship program was a year long. This first gathering I went three months pregnant. At the end of the year we had our second gathering where I brought my three month old son. I started using herbs at home with my newborn son and was inspired by the results. I started suggesting herbs and making a few preparations for friends and family and before long I wanted others to know about how easy and wonderful using herbs could be. I started wholesaling and teaching, which soon grew into my own space. I wanted to be able to help everyone who walked through my door and debated about going back to school to become a Dr, but was drawn to becoming a certified health coach. The program changed me, my perspective, and the way I am able to help others on their healing journey.
Over the past 10 years I have focused on adding tools and knowledge to my repertoire, selecting specific career choices in preparation for the manifestation of a dream I had when I was 18. From helping to create new offerings in existing businesses, managing a start-up, taking an entrepreneurial class, and so much more that I am so ready to focus on what is in my heart and soul. I am committed to seeing this blossom and grow along with everyone else who decides to join me on this journey toward Tranquility.
Why Do I Love Herbs?
I have a strong connection to the plant world. Somethings that come so natural are hard to explain. I’ve always felt more relaxed and connected to myself when I am in nature and sitting with my plant friends. I enjoy creating that relationship, learning about how they can help on many different levels; physically and emotionally. I get super enthused to see that passion ignite in someone else, when they share the awe of that first connection with a plant, the benefits from using it to help with an ailment, and then start down the road to making room in their kitchen for their own personal apothecary and start sharing it with their friends and family. I feel that is part of why I’m here. To help build that connection for others, to show how meaningful and helpful, and how simple and easy it is to start incorporating their beautiful energy and properties into our daily lives for the betterment of all.
Tranquility is Important to Me
The word Tranquility came to me on our first move to Ely back in 2004, when my husband and I were discussing this dream of mine to open a resort for families. I was searching for a word that described the reason for creating this special place. Tranquility was the right word. Over the years the dream has evolved as I have, but Tranquility still remains. After opening my herb store back in NY I was able to define what I feel it means to achieve Tranquility. Having a body in balance is important, illness happens when your body is out of balance, your emotions can get the better of
you, toxins can build up and we are not at our best. Finding what our body needs to achieve balance is the first step. Then learning to pay attention to our thoughts, helping to create a mind at ease, how we treat ourselves because they are as powerful and sometimes more so than the food we put into our body, and then learning to hear and follow the desires of our soul, a satisfied soul, will bring us to finding that balance in our life, the joy and peace and ease that I like to call Tranquility. I am on my way and I want to bring you with me. If we each do our part this world will be a beautiful loving place for all of us!
Why Focus on Children’s Health?
As a child who suffered from aches and pains and not knowing why I am dedicated to empowering families with the knowledge, skills and tools to create healthy vibrant children that understand and know how to take care of themselves leading to healthy vibrant adults and stronger healthier generations to come. Tranquility Wellness Center LLC has a threefold focus of helping others achieve; a body in balance, a mind at ease and a satisfied soul.
I’ve learned through experience that it is not all about what you eat, that we are all unique and learning what works for each of us is key. Understanding your body, being curious, and willing to try something different are huge parts of the equation. I’ve learned all of this while on my own healing journey trying to find answers on how to have more energy, eliminate my aches and pains, get better sleep, etc. I remember my Uncle commenting on how mature I was saying that I was “13 going on 30”, and I remember commenting that I felt as if I was 13 going on 88. It wasn’t serious enough to see a Doctor, and who knows what would have happened then. I just complained a lot. Menstrual issues, complexion issues and looking back now I’m pretty sure it was all due to digestive issues.
I have experienced so many profound changes on my personal journey toward Tranquility that have had tremendous positive impacts on my life that I am passionate about helping others do the same. I grew up with minor health issues that had huge implications on my satisfaction that I am here to empower others with the knowledge and tools to do the same for themselves and their loved ones.
