All About NanLT
A woman of Many Hats
As I make my way through life, I have found that I must take on many jobs. I'm a mother, a wife, a friend. I am an Energy Healer and a Reiki Master. I'm a witch and a Pagan. I'm a writer and sell images I've designed through Zazzle.
Each of these is a hat. Come with me now as I explore some of these hats with you.

Wife, Mother, and Friend
Just a Housewife?
When I moved to the UK and married my husband we together made the decision that I would stay home to take care of our home and future children. Over the years our little family grew from 3 to 5 and now I am the proud mother of one adult son and two young sons currently in primary school.
In the past few years both young sons have been diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder, and so their needs have been much more complex than we anticipated. Still, we wouldn't trade them for anything. I have taken a number of classes through the Burgess Autistic Trust to learn how to provide for their needs, and how to help them manage in a world which is very strange to their way of thinking.

Energy Healer and Reiki Master
Is there a hat for this?
I knew at a very young age that I had to be a nurse. When I reached high school I was even more certain of my goal and set out to achieve it. After leaving high school I entered university and was accepted into the nursing program. In 1989 I gaduated university with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
Over the next 10 years I worked as a nurse in the critical care setting with a specialism in coronary and medical nursing. In the midst of all this I began to explore complementary and alternative healing methods. I began my training as a Reiki Practitioner in 1993 and was attuned as a Reiki Master-Teacher in 1998.
Since then I have expanded my own studies into energy healing. I practice Intuitive Healing using Reiki and am studying Shamanic Healing to further my abilities as an Energy Healer.

Pagan and Witch
But I Don't Have a Pointy Hat
Over the years as my spiritual and religious beliefs developed I felt myself being drawn to the Pagan religions. I have called myself a Pagan and a witch for 20 years now.
I call myself a kitchen witch because I am drawn to and use the herbs, spices, and other items in my home. I have a special fondness for Granny Weatherwax and want to be just like her one day.
Lately, I have been following a long held desire and have been studying Shamanism.
