Aundrea is 37.
Although she experienced an idyllic childhood in rural Western PA, she never quite felt like she 'fit' and started traveling in her late teenage years with The Grateful Dead, Phish, attending music festivals on the east coast, Jamcruise, and some blessed time at the Omega Institute.
Aundrea felt drawn to and knew she was meant to first live in North Carolina and, eventually, NORCAL. She holds a B.A in the field of Human Studies from Warren Wilson College in Asheville, NC, as well as Master's level classes in the area of Community Counseling. She is also a Licensed Practical Nurse in the state of PA and currently working on transferring her license to CA so that she can return to school. In addition to pursuing appropriate medical credentialing, she is a student of Dr. Avivva Romm's Herbal Medicine for Women program.Though none of her own, Aundrea has extensive experience in working with children, as well as in the adult mental health field and is skilled in utilizing both CBT and DBT techniques.
She is a trained Doula through Cornerstone Doula Trainings in San Francisco and has been accepted to a midwifery program with the beloved and amazing Whapio, although not sure when she will be able to attend.
Aundrea currently lives in Marin, with her blessed twin flame, Nicholas. After becoming homeless, they have earned to share a studio apartment
through a social service agency. Although not ideal, as it resides on an old military base with nosey neighbors, they live in abundance, trust, and light~and continue to affirm their dreams are in sight :)
She luvs the color prpl, yoga/Qi gong, amazing organic food, the ocean, and all things life. Although quickly becoming steeped in the Mystery school training's, she also resonates with all earth based religions, especlaly the indigenous cultures of Anasazi/Hopi/Navajo and Lakota, and Goddess traditions.
When she is not writing, she enjoys sewing high frequency clothes, and being open to how the muse moves her. Aundrea hopes to one day be able to afford the Nikon DSLR of her dreams and return to photography. She also looks forward to taking up belly dancing in a formal class room setting, skydiving, and finding a perfectly affordable rural but-not-to-rural fixer-upper home and property in NORCAL--where she will be able to cultivate botanical healing products, establish a wholistic healing practice focused on wombyn's health and pregnancy, and practice archery.
She is a recovered opiate/heroin addict and has been struck by lightning, resulting in substantial neuro-cognitive deficits. She relearned how to speak effectively, count, and is still partly dependent on permanent disability earnings.
Currently a professional pet sitter and dog walker, she has healed herself of Fibroymalgia, and is ready to ride a bicycle for the first time in her adult life! A believer in neuroplasticity, and divine magic, she has reclaimed and recreated her life.
Watch this PrplPhoenix take flight :)~
