Reflecting back, the answer is yes! As a young girl I always seem to know things but couldn’t quite explain them. I had a lot of anxiety and fear growing up. Now I know that it was because I could feel others' energy meaning I could feel the emotions they were feeling at the time. I would have dreams and premonitions and couldn’t talk to anyone about it. As a child we all had big imaginations but for me this was real! I still have my journals from when I was a little girl and it reads “P.S.-I think I’m Psychic” but somewhere along the way I put that belief aside. I always felt that something was missing in my life and little did I know that the missing piece to the puzzle was spirit!
When I was 21, my cousin had traveled from Italy to visit me here in NY. We decided to take a trip to Washington D.C.! While waiting to board the bus, I had an inkling that I needed to talk to my nonna/grandmother. I just needed to hear her voice. We had a lovely conversation. Little did I know it would be my last. I received the news when we got home from our trip that my beloved nonna had passed away. I was devastated, thinking I would never feel her presence again. A few years later while recovering from a minor surgery, I had a strong sensation that my nonna was there and covering me with a blanket. My nonna still finds ways to reach out and our powerful bond didn’t die when she did.
In 2013 less than a month after marrying my best friend Billy I suffered a spine injury and that led to multiple traumatic surgeries, this is where my “awakening” came. I have undergone eight surgeries in the past 8 years and in April of 2018 I donated my kidney to an amazing young lady. I have also been diagnosed with three rare diseases (SMAS, NCS, MALS) which all needed surgeries to help correct.

I am a huge advocate for organ donation as I mentor and support others with “Nutcrackers” to go forward with living donation. I have put together fundraising events and I have donated all proceeds to charity. I am very involved with The National Kidney Foundation but have also done fundraisers for Breast Cancer, Alzheimer’s, and I’ve also helped raise awareness for other greater causes.
I used to be so nervous to travel and thanks to Spirit I now have the strength too! Spirit has been taking me on adventures I never dreamed of and here I am traveling the globe! I cannot wait to see where I will go next and who I will meet along the way here and in Spirit!
