Tina has spent most of her life in Los Angeles. She is a graduate of UCLA, where she earned her degree in molecular biology. After many years working in various fields that were largely unfulfilling, she decided to pursue her true passion of helping and healing people and animals. Tina studied reiki under Rev. Dr. Lea Alexander and has achieved the level of Reiki Master. Under Dr. Lea she is seventh in line from Mikao Usui, founder of Usui Reiki Ryoho (Usui Spiritual Energy Healing Method). She has also attended training with Dr. Lea for Reiki and Body Balancing Techniques for Animals.

Tina is currently on the path of becoming a crystal healer, medicine carrier, and shaman. In addition to healing, she plays the guitar, sings, and spends lots of quality time with her family and her horse.
