About Me: I’m a lifestyle blogger and book author who weaves a little magic into every aspect of my life. I love to set beautiful tables and plant wonderful gardens, talk to my healing herbs and flowers and give endless kisses to my cats. I cherish living a family-centered life filled with much love and enchantment. For close to 30 years I was the president of Schreibman Jewelers, one of Northeast Ohio’s largest and most prestigious bridal registries, jewelry, gift and tableware businesses. It was during my years in retail that I discovered that many were drawn to me for my gift of teaching them to live every day with beauty and passion. I know that creating a life you love is all about empowering yourself to make the healing choices that get your creative juices flowing. I see life as a celebration, a personal tailored seasonal feast that you get to enjoy every day! A life well lived is what I want for you, full of pleasure, love and passion, intimacy, beauty, glowing health and radiant energy. My clients have referred to me as “a feast for the senses, a coach that speaks to all the senses as well as to the heart.” Another said, “I totally recommend her to anyone looking for more connection to themselves, their loved ones and their own lives.” I have always been drawn to promoting a seasonal, sensual way of living, eating and being and I love to teach a sustainable and seasonal way of looking at your whole life. There’s nothing I love more than to spend long days in my gardens tending the healing herbs, fruits and vegetables, promoting healing through herbalism, flower and gem essences, aromatherapy and Reiki, cooking gorgeous, healthy and delicious meals for my family (both four-legged and two) and friends while brewing delightful herbal potions to help keep you healthy, gorgeous and sexy all over, inside and out. If you ever run into me you can count on me asking you: “What’s your secret dream? Let’s nurture it!” Inspired by the pages of Victoria and British Country Living magazine , I have built the City Wytch Secret Tea Society on Substack. This magical community is full of beauty and celebration and it's where I share my secrets for living a charmed life. I live and work with Jim , my husband of 40 years in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. I like to joke and say that my favorite job right now is that of “Fairy Granny!” Jim and I became first time grandparents in November when our son Alex and daughter in law Angie had their first child, a darling little boy named Wolfgang , aka Wolfie! I am owned by 17 full sets of vintage dishes, hundreds of books, 3 cats, a dog, several horses, a swarm of wild honeybees, a garden full of herbs, fruit, vegetables and old rambling roses, too many bottles of vintage perfume and very soon, a flock of heirloom chickens!
