I’m a mother to one awesome man, a sister to two beautiful women, and Aunt Rhi Rhi to four amazing young humans. I’m currently the beloved caregiver of two black cats and a 6 ft red tail boa constrictor. I’m a fire spinner, hula hooper, dancer, healer, artist.”

Favorite Tarot of Oracle Deck: The Messenger Oracle, by Ravynne Phelan, has become my favorite daily go to deck. As far as tarot, I have a tattered old deck of the Lovers Tarot, now long out of print, that are over-sized collage cards, depicting only the major arcana.

Favorite place to grab a bite in the DG neighborhood: I love so many of our awesome neighborhood restaurants I couldn’t just tell you about one so here goes: fresh juice at All Shook Up; any salad and the lavender lemonade from Twisted Soul; everything on the menu at Tomato Cafe and all your coffee needs are well taken care of at the Crafted Kup – right next door.
The best thing about working at the DG: The best thing about going to work every day starts off with being greeted by the most amazing staff. We are a cohesive family unit; growing, healing, challenging ourselves in the safety of each others’ gentleness and understanding. I am deeply blessed by each of their presence in my life, both at work and outside of the Shop.
