I am a 72 year old retired nurse and Vietnam veteran. I served as an Army Nurse from 1966-1986 including 18 months in a combat hospital in Vietnam. Although I retired in 1986 I was called back to active duty for the first Gulf War, retiring a second time in 1992.
I have been a practicing Wiccan since 1980. I trained in the Oak, Ash, and Thorn Tradition of Wicca beginning in 1990, and received my Third Degree from OATh at Samhain 1996. I founded my own coven of Tangled Moon at Yule 1996 and ran it until we closed its doors at Midsummer 2008. I now serve as High Priestess of the Oak, Ash, and Thorn Tradition with a total of three daughter covens and one training circle. As of June 2013 I am also a 3rd Degree Gardnerian initiate.
I have a Master of Divinity degreein Pagan Pastoral Counseling from Cherry Hill Seminary. I now teach at Cherry Hill in both the Military Chaplain and the Community Ministry programs.
In my not-so-copious free time I do medieval re-enactment, quilting, medieval embroidery, hand spinning, weaving, gourmet cooking, reading, dressage, scuba diving, and archery. You can find my real-life coven's website with the link above.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I do not teach on-line students . However, I am always willing to try to answer specific questions if I can. I do not give out spells to others. Nor do I do spells for others that I do not know personally, so please don't ask.
