Campaign Description

Help The Light Journey facilitate healing of mind, body and spirit with natural and holistic self care products and services.


Passion & Purpose

I have been a professional Reiki Practitioner since 2016 after I completed the Usui Reiki Master Level training at Mount Royal University. Before I started my business, I had a background in retail management and corporate administration. Despite having what some would describe as a 'dream' job, I wanted to connect with people on a deeper, more meaningful level and this drive has been with me since I was a child. After struggling with mental health issues as a result of trauma and abuse during childhood, I gained the insight that I wanted to help others and it took many years of support and self care before I was able to take the steps to start loving myself and granting myself the energy and space to heal.

I believe each one of us is responsible for our own healing journey. That healing is a form of self care and love and it is fundamental to our understanding of self and inner personal growth.

Each day I strive to help others, not only is this my passion but I believe it is my purpose. 

Since I started The Light Journey I have had the privelege of working with over 20 different clients, I have volunteered over 30 hours at local community support programs such as The Alex and the Canadian Mental Health Association. I have donated over $600 in products in services to support women's health and wellness events and organizations in Calgary, such as the Women in Need Society.

In order to maintain my impact and continue to grow my business, I need your help.
