The Part Where I Talk About Myself
My background is in nature: I spend my time exploring it, learning about it, and being a part of it. I have a Masters in Environmental Science and a Bachelors in Fish and Wildlife. I am a college professor at a local university. I believe education is the greatest gift you can give yourself. I live in a happy home with my husband and two huskies, Kalypso and Nyx. I watch horror movies, play first person shooters on the PS4, am obsessed with Lord of the Rings and Star Wars, and I can eat a shameful amount of pasta.

The Part Where I Explain What I Do
I study and practice Norse Paganism and Northern Tradition Shamanism, as I have been doing for several years. I consider myself a seidkona and I am a member of the Troth. Spiritually, I believe personal gnosis and written lore are both important aspects of a practice to recognize. A large portion of my practice revolves around nature, and as such I work closely with the landvaettir and some of the more elemental jotunfolk.

Deities I Work With : Loki | Mimir | Freyja | Aegir & Ran| Njordr | Skadhi| Fenrir
