As Seen In...
Hi! Thanks for visiting my website.
Here's the short story:
I am passionate about the role of nature in our lives.
In my own personal journey I have deepened my nature connection and have found greater joy and well being.
Part of my life's path is to share this passion with others.
I am author of Creating Luminous Spaces (Conari Press, 2018), an experienced workshop leader and speaker for corporate events and conferences, and a frequent guest speaker at The Lodge at Woodloch, a top destination spa in Northeastern PA.
I inspire others to discover and connect with their True Nature through the Five Elements of Eastern philosophy.
I created and led a feng shui certification since 2009 and my Luminous Spaces Feng Shui School has achieved the highest standards set by the International Feng Shui Guild. I have been practicing since 2005, but I have worked with energy all of my life.
I offer a Free 30-minute Exploratory Call to see how you might benefit from creating Luminous Spaces of your own. Please reach out. I would love to hear your story...

9 fun, quirky facts about me!
- I'm a big Doctor Who fan
- I LOVE the color orange
- I care for orphaned baby squirrels for the local nature center
- If I weren't a feng shui consultant, my dream job would be a storm chaser or astronomer (I'm already an amateur astrologer)
- I talk to trees (well, of course!)
- I caste my own birth chart when I was 13 (yes, that was before computer programs). I did a pretty damn good job, too! My ascendant was only off by 10 degrees.
- My father's nickname for me was "Peanut"
- I only let a few, very close old friends call me "Mo" (you know who you are...)
- Archangel Gabriel is one of my spirit guides ("no duh!")

Okay, here's the long story...
Around when I was around eleven, I became an environmentalist and an astrology student. My father had just died and I guess that I hadn't realized that these two areas were aspects of the same thing: I craved an understanding that there must be a meaningful connection between myself and the greater cosmos. That I was part of the whole.
These interests became passions – passion for connecting with divine energy as well as the Earth. As above, so below.
At that same time in my life, I became more aware of energy and other spiritual subjects. And since then, I have been a student, soaking in all I can about the world’s indigenous religions and spiritual practices, as well as astrology, geology, psychology, quantum physics and architecture.
For over 25 years, I worked in the corporate world in agency marketing, doing conferences, presentations, and dealing with clients in diverse industries including publishing, financial services and travel.
In the meantime, I discovered the path of feng shui and a chance to study Eastern philosophy. It has fulfilled my desire to bring all of my life's interests into one comprehensive discipline. Everything that I loved and admired was active and alive in this amazing practice of feng shui!
I found that everything has energetic vibrations and interacts and impacts everything else. Change is constant and has somewhat predictable patterns. And learning about feng shui can provide great wisdom on the inner workings of our lives.
At last I was able to learn profound insights to help myself as well as others with their personal energy, and their home and work environments.
And then came my discovery of a book by Richard Louv, The Last Child in the Woods. (Just hearing the title struck a deep cord in my soul). This book encapsulated all that I had been feeling my entire life: Today's world – nearly always portrayed as heading toward a desolate apocalypse – requires us to make some profound changes in our way of being. Technology has developed at such a rapid pace that we lost our contact with the natural world. And in order to establish any sort of "balance and harmony" in our modern lives, we must connect to nature. This has become my mantra!
Empowered and inspired by this book, I realized how feng shui is actually a perfect path to help others tap into that peace in their lives. For me, Feng Shui’s wisdom is a true path to consciousness and caring for the Earth as well as all its beings.
This idea is present in the Taoist proverb:
"Living in harmony with the Earth brings good fortune."
I feel very fortunate that I am able to continue to learn and grow in my full purpose as well as help others do the same. I help my clients regain a sense of harmony and joy in their lives through:
- feng shui and biophilic design in the home and workplace
- understanding themselves, loved ones and co-workers through the Five Natural Elements of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water
- the I-Ching (a tool to help gain wisdom in making decisions)
- sacred space clearings and blessings
- and geomancy and geopathic stress analysis (using dowsing) to help promote harmony in the environment
I look forward to hearing from you!
