I was born and raised in the central Appalachians. Apart from a brief stint in the coastal plains of North Carolina (and time spent traveling around the Spanish-speaking world), I have lived in the mountains all my life.

After graduating from college with a degree in biology and Spanish, I earned master's degrees in public health and teaching (Spanish). I am currently completing my doctoral research, which focuses on mindfulness. In addition to my academic studies, I am a traditional Usui Reiki Master, certified aromatherapist, and metaphysical practitioner.

I have practiced Reiki since 2013 and taught Reiki I and II since 2017. I studied metaphysics with the College of Divine Metaphysics and the University of Metaphysics. Since 2018, I have served as editor of the Journal of Metaphysical Thought. I am also an avid dowser and have benefitted a lot from the work of Raymon Grace.

As of January 2019, I have provided energy healing/clearing sessions and intuitive sessions with 100+ people from around the globe.

I love to write and have published several books including Mikao's Journey: The Story of Reiki, Usui Reiki II Manual, Mastering Peace, Dive Into Spanish, and Command Line BASIC.
