In this world there are “dreamers, shapers, singers and makers.” I’m with them.
I’m a catalyst for change, in myself and others. My mission: to live creatively with passion, purpose, abundance and joy, and empower others to do the same. Blending astrology, business acumen and my metaphysical training, I help my clients discover their genius and devise creative solutions to life’s challenges.
In addition to my consulting practice at Donna Philosophica, I teach astrology and other esoteric studies at Kepler College and the University of Texas’ Informal Classes. I’ve also hosted of my own internet radio show, and written columns and daily horoscopes at major astrological websites such as astrology.com, mysign.com and astrology hub.com.
My seeking mind never rests, always wondering what’s beyond the river bend. My search has taken me places I could never have imagined. I’m an initiate of the Australian branch of the Hermetic Order of the Brotherhood of Light, under the guidance of “white witch” Leonora “Sageylee” Jackson. I’ve studied hands-on healing, dreamwork, channeling and ceremonial leadership with eco-feminist Eileen “ike” West. And I received my hypnosis certification with world-renown hypnotist Mark Cunningham.
I love to splash and play in the astrological community pool. I founded the Astrological Society of Austin, served as a board member on two of the world’s largest astrology associations — the International Society for Astrological Research and the National Council of Geocosmic Research, and as member of the Astrology News Service editorial board.
Over the years, I’ve also worked as a journalist, translator, fundraiser and non-profit organizer. I received Masters degrees from the University of Texas in Journalism and in Latin American Studies.
I live with my beautiful daughter in Austin, Texas.
