Looking forward to future episodes! :)

Just listened to episode one! As both a chronic illness warrior (as I like to call us) and energy healer who has been providing full time eldercare for nearly ten years (and counting) this was such a relatable interview. Both informative and fun with great stories and insights. I’m looking forward to what’s to come. Journey on!
