I was born in West Hazleton, Pennsylvania in 1957, the sixth of seven children. My parents were of Italian and Polish decent and raised us as devout Catholics. They were also extremely open minded because my paternal grandmother was a medium specializing in healing. Unfortunately, she died before I was born. Still, I felt as if I knew her from the stories my parents and neighbors told about her, her gift, and her ability to help so many people throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania. I am convinced that the roots of my mediumship stem from her, for which I am eternally grateful.
As a young child I had trouble sleeping due to "ghosts" visiting me. I was often in my own world talking to people who " supposedly " where not there. I also knew information about deceased relatives that I never met. My parents took me for my word not making a big deal about it, patiently answering my questions. Once the adolescent years hit, I rationalized these visits away as a vivid childhood imagination. As an adult, I poured my energies into being a wife, a mother of two ,and a nurse. Then in 1995, my life took a turn. I began to specialize in Hospice Homecare nursing, took a tarot card reading class just for fun, and received my grandmother's crystal ball out of the blue. All of a sudden, I began relaying information and messages to friends about their loved ones who had passed. The information was accurate, amazing and no way should I have known it. I saw how it helped them with grieving, giving inner peace and closure. I realized that the next phase of my life had evolved, humbled by how truley blessed I was and am.
