I am a mother of two beautiful and busy children, wife, sister, friend, advocate and truth teller. I have spent years in the education field as a teacher and many more as an advocate for my son. I am an avid reader, writer and doodler and I want to share with the world what I have learned not only through my education but also through my experiences.

My family is an adoptive family with one domestic and one international adoption. I have gone through the struggles of infertility and the adoption process and come out the other side alive and kicking and you can too!

In my family we live with neurological differences on a daily basis; Autism, Dysgraphia, Sensory Issues and Executive Functioning Issues. We also deal with attachment issues and trauma. We have found help and hope and I want to share that with you.


My education includes an undergraduate degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education, a graduate degree in Curriculum and Instruction and Literacy, and a Bastyr trained Aroma therapist.

My passions include God, my family, education, advocating for kids, handwriting education, reading, animals, writing, painting, friends, tea, and of course essential oils!

About Square Pegs, Round World Aromatherapy Essential Oil Academy

I created this site to help empower families to take a natural approach to healing in their homes. My desire is to educate you on the safe and effective use of essential oils for physical, emotional and spiritual empowerment and health.

As a mother of two beautiful children who were adopted both domestically and internationally, I know first hand the struggles that go with raising children with Attachment issues, ADD, Neurological differences, Dysgraphia, Executive Functioning challenges, Impulse control and Mood Regulation. I want to share with you what has helped not only in our home but in the homes of my clients, friends and family members.

I have created The Essential Oil Academy so that you can have unlimited access to information to help you on your family’s journey. As an aromatherapist I understand the power of essential oils when used safely and correctly and I am excited share my knowledge with you.

In the Academy you will have access to webinars, videos, e-books, interviews, classes, topical handouts, audios and monthly live calls where you can ask questions and receive support.  There is also a private Facebook group where you can ask questions and get support and monthly live, online workshops where we create blends for specific needs.
