A professional registered nurse (ER, Critical Care) for over 30
years, Verna has spent recent years voraciously learning about
and healing from a wide variety of integrative holistic modalities.
A certified Reiki Master, she now teaches first year nursing students,
exposing them whenever possible to the vast worlds of healing
beyond traditional medical models. Her own experience led
her to recently become a certified forensic nurse examiner; she
finds working with victims of sexual assault in its immediate
aftermath deeply satisfying and intensely life-shaping as well.
And since she believes that one cannot fully "recover"
oneself without also helping to heal the world in which wounding
takes place, Verna is part of a team who take sexual awareness/sexual
assault prevention programs to young teens in local schools.
Verna's mission is to be a healing heart presence in the
world, consciously co-creating whatever miracles
(burstings forth of new life possibilities) that Spirit and fellow
sojourners are ready to set free. She is available for individual
and group presentations on a variety of topics, and may be reached
