A Bit About Me

I am the founder and publisher of The Conscious Cat (www.consciouscat.net), a website dedicated to conscious living, health and happiness for cats and their humans. I’m a former veterinary hospital manager and certified veterinary journalist. My articles have been published in Animal Wellness Magazine, Kittens 101, Cat Fancy Magazine, and numerous other publications.

I’m also a Reiki Master Practitioner and owner of Healing Hands. I am trained in traditional Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki. I integrate Reiki with my natural intuitive abilities and tailor each session to develop the best experience for each individual client, be it human or animal.

I came to my passion of writing about cats “the long way.” I spent the first fifteen years of my professional life working my way up into middle management in a financial services company. I left that job to manage a veterinary hospital for eight years, which finally allowed me to do work that I loved.

I share my Northern Virginia home with Allegra, a 10-year-old tortoiseshell cat.

My Favourite Travel Pictures

The beach at sunrise is one of my favorite places to be. I love having the ocean practically to myself at that hour of the morning.

The Hidden Gems I’ve Found

“Sunset Beach is an amazing spot to watch the sun set over the water.”

Sunset Beach on the Cape May Peninsula near Cape May Point along the Delaware Bay is an amazing spot to watch the sun set over the water. There aren’t many beach towns where you can watch the sun both rise and set over water.

The Ramble in Central Park in New York City is a 38-acre area of the park that makes you feel like you’re in the middle of a forest, and yet you’re in one of the busiest cities in the world.

My Favourite Destinations

My Dream Destinations

Montreux, Switzerland. I visited this beautiful mountain town on Lake Geneva in the 1970s and haven’t been back since. It’s at the top of my list of places to visit once travel becomes safe again.
