As owner of Healthy Images, LLC, my goal is to help you find a greater quality of life using products and services that I love because they have helped me and many others. I offer them so that you too may continually enjoy higher levels of health, wealth, and happiness.
Except for the fact that I’ve been in healthcare (dental hygienist) my entire life, my interest in wellness really came later. Throughout my life I have always asked questions like “Why are we here?” “What are we supposed to be doing?” “What is happiness, really?” I’ve done a lot of reading, listening, meeting, traveling, wondering, working, thinking; always with that question “How can I/we be REALLY happy?” Happiness, I realized, is a choice we each make at any moment in spite of our circumstances.
I’ve always been fascinated by buildings and the structure of things. For instance, I can look at the packaging for my iPhone with the same fascination I have observing a European cathedral. I love to see what makes a shape flow.
Long before I knew about feng shui, I was adamant that any place I lived in feel warm, comfortable, welcoming and somewhat elegant. It had to have context, like a bowl or container for the life that was lived within it.
I’m also a student of conscious language and realize that words really are mightier than the sword. It became obvious to me that how we communicate with each other can deeply affect our state of happiness. I discovered we are responsible for how we react/respond to another’s communication with us and taking up that responsibility can make all the difference for a good outcome or feeling miserable.
Another important part of communication I learned involves our energy fields. It’s our essence that is really doing the communicating much more than even the words!
I had my first experience with an energy healer in the mid 90’s. She was a graduate of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing. I was intrigued by how much she could sense about me using her intuition and sensing the energy in the area around my body. Then she would shift that energy and something would change in my life; emotional or physical.
She was so accurate and what she was doing and it was so fascinating that one day I asked her if she could do an ‘energy audit’ on my house. She said, “Oh, I have’s a friend who does that. That’s called feng shui.” I called this person and made an appointment. My life has never been the same!
I had a consultation with the feng shui expert and was blown away by what she could tell me about my life by looking at my space, and, by how powerful and effective were her suggestions.
Later I found out there was an intensive three year feng shui training program starting in my area. I was so excited I signed up immediately. That was 20 years ago. I have to say my experience with feng shui has never changed. It always works! At last I knew! It was the energy in the space, the essence of the space, that had fascinated me in those buildings and rooms earlier in my life.
Many in western culture just don’t know about these things. It makes a huge difference when we consciously attend to our space; when we fill it with our positive intentions; when we recognize that our space is an extension of ourselves and tend to it the way we would our bodies using exercise and good nutrition. This attention to energy works when I am assisting a client stage their home to sell. Prospective buyers feel the essence and want the home. The physical details matter for sure, but the essence makes the juicy offers come in.
During my feng shui studies one of my classmates introduced me to Essential Oils. Truthfully, I bought the starter kit and signed up for the monthly ordering wondering what the heck I was doing. Big surprise! I started using them, and they work! Just like feng shui!
Being exposed to so many people who are wellness practitioners through essential oils, just brought greater and greater awareness to me about nutrition, toxins in our environment, and more natural ways to stay balanced and happy in our everyday lives. I eat, drink, breathe, apply and diffuse essential oils everyday!
It’s 20 years since the feng shui consultation opened up a new world to me. What that means is that I’m 20 years older! But the cool part is I don’t feel older, I feel younger. People are usually flabbergasted when they find out my actual age. It’s impossible for me to estimate the impact Young Living Essential Oils and their philosophy of ‘Wellness, Purpose, and Abundance” has on my life.
I am filled with gratitude for all the answers I have been guided to and all the experiences I have been privileged to have in my quest to know “Why.”
As we move forward, my passion is to assist anyone else who yearns for answers to life’s questions and challenges. I keep learning myself and as I continue to refine my questions and get led to even more answers, my passion is to share so we all get happier and happier.
My tagline “Home-Health-Happiness” stems from my realizing that there is no point to being healthy and having a beautiful home if it doesn’t make you feel happy. And yet, feeling healthy and vital, and having a home that feels, safe and uplifting contribute immensely to saying “Yes!” to the circumstances of life!

Now are you ready for some fun facts about me?
- I grew up on the farm and hated all the hard work in the fields. I wanted to get as far away as I could from farming. Now here I am, loving working with the essential oils from plants and thrilled anytime I get to visit a Young Living Farm!
- I lived in Europe almost 10 years and never mastered a foreign language. This is not funny! It is embarrassing!
- I have walked on fire and eaten fire like a real fire eater.
- I am most excited when I discover a new insight or idea.
- I never thought I’d have children and ended up with the two most wonderful adult people I have ever met, and now the cutest grandchild on the planet! ( I am not prejudiced- it is the truth I swear!)
- My first car was a red Austin Healey Sprite!
- I have been to the Cape of Good Hope on the southern tip of Africa, stayed awake with the midnight sun in both Norway and Alaska, got up close and personal with the Blue Footed Boobies of the Galapagos Islands, bicycled down Haleakala in Maui, ridden a camel in Petra, visited the Kremlin before the fall of the Iron Curtain, etc., and am looking forward to more adventures!
