General and Professional

  • I am a professional Tarot Reader and book consultations by phone as well as in-person. By using the link on the menu bar, you can check my availability for phone readings as well as either book a secure phone consultation or schedule one for a future date.
  • I am the owner of Arsenic & Old Lace, one of the oldest occult stores in New England. We were the Pagan Community Center in New England to offer open rituals and classes to the great community. Now entirely on the internet, we carry over 7500 quality Pagan and Wiccan tools, gifts, and occult supplies.
  • We provide them with some of the best prices you will find and deliver them with integrity and exceptional customer service.
  • I am also the owner of StregaCrafts, our newest venture dedicated to Witchcraft derived from the cultures and magical traditions of Sicily/Italy and the Mediterranean. Here you will find items that are either personally handmade and empowered by us or that are magically crafted by real people who know what they're doing. As "New World Practitioners" of the "Old Religion", we hope to bring together the integrity and quality of the past through modern-day practices and venues.
  • My husband and I got legally married on the date of our 20th anniversary (March 28, 2005). We live just north of Boston, MA, USA with one dog and two cats.
  • One of our favorite things to do is to travel the world and experience other cultures. At last count, we've been to 96 cities in 19 countries.

I've had the honor to study a number of different Traditions

  • I am an Initiate and Elder of the Chthonioi-Alexandrian Tradition of Wicca as well as the (BTW) Alexandrian Tradition of Wicca.
  • I am also an Initiate and Stregone Mago (Elder) of a Strega Tradition (Sicilian/Italian-American Craft).
  • As a member of La Vecchia Religione, the Craft, my spiritual and religious practices revolve around the reverence and worship of "the Old Gods", the Goddess, and the God.
  • In addition, I have a special interest in the development of nature contacts, such as those forces typified by the spirits and minor divinities of Greek and Italian mythology – specifically, Lare, Lasa, and Manes/Ancestors.
