Born in South Carolina, and now living in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Appalachia, I am deep-rooted and well educated in Southern folk practices. My old-world roots are of Scottish and French Huguenot decent, so although I was raised Southern Baptist, it’s not surprising that I had an early affinity to Celtic Wicca and Druidism. However, the mysticism and mysteries of the mountain-folk and conjure practices have always been a part of my life.

From water witching to cutting a notch in a tree to cure asthma, I’ve been steeped in the history, lore, and customs of folk remedies, conjure, and mountain magic, practicing them naturally and fluently. One of my earliest memories involves an accident where my face was burned by boiling water. My mother — panicking — was told to take me to an old woman the next town over to “talk the fire out.” We rushed there and the woman prayed for a moment, made some hand gestures, and blew on my face. Immediately the pain was gone, and my face never scarred. The power of folk magic was immediately evident, and this experience started my spiritual journey, instilling in me the driving force of my spiritual work – helping others.

My teen years brought opportunities for additional growth and understanding of the mystical world around us. Upon discovering a nearby New Age shop, I ventured inside, unknowingly opening new doors, rapidly advancing my journey, and shaping my spiritual development throughout my teens. Here I met my first teacher, still one of my mentors today, and was initiated into a lineage of Caledonii Grande Tradition of Celtic Wicca and Druidism. I started learning and practicing Tarot by reading for family and friends. After accurately predicting my hairdresser's pregnancy and the baby’s gender at the age of 14, I launched into the life of a professional reader. This set me on a quest to uncover and understand my ancestry and the intergenerational folk methods and magic used in my community. Exploring my heritage led me to rootwork and hoodoo, which naturally harmonized with the innate skills I had demonstrated and broadened my abilities. I am a 2018 graduate of Catherine Yronwode’s Hoodoo Rootwork Correspondence Course. The years since have proven me an adept and proficient practitioner.

I’ve studied multiple energy healing modalities, including Reiki, and incorporated them into my practice to further enhance my mission of helping others. I have also developed my holistic capabilities, completing coursework to become a licensed massage and bodywork therapist and a certified professional aromatherapist. I am a pastor at Folk Faith Ministries.

I’m non-judgmental and discreet. However, I will not take unjustified curse work, but I fully realize that sometimes “the best defense is a good offence.” All workings require a reading before commencement to clarify intentions, define the situation, examine the forces present that could influence the work, and ensure the best possible outcome. Basic information required for a reading includes the petitioner’s name, birth date, and the specific question or goal that is sought. Other works or readings may need additional information; this will be discussed upon meeting.
