"My journey into aromatherapy began a few years ago with a simple tattoo of great symbolism – Breathe – and with the hope to self-heal myself.

When I was introduced to essential oils and experienced the healing powers of the plant world, I knew that I had found my passion. I decided to work towards aromatherapy certification and learn more about the healing properties of essential oils to intelligently and safely share my knowledge to help others.

After 6 months of researching schools I chose the Essence of Thyme College of Holistic Studies and it was one of the best decisions that I made in my life."
