Brenda believes in the healing properties of crystals and gemstones which instills her passion for creating beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry. It is her hope that each Empowerment Necklace brings joy, positive light and protection to the wearer and that she can infuse a source of healing and positive light into our organization. Her passion for educating and supporting those with food allergies is a perfect fit for our mission and objectives.

From childhood Brenda suffered from various ailments not knowing they were food allergy related. Everything from asthma, allergies, sinus problems, GI issues, sleep disturbance, skin problems, joint pain, and the list goes on. She didn’t discover until her late 30's that she had severe gluten and dairy intolerances. In conjunction with changing her diet, she found significant healing through the use of crystals. Brenda has made it her mission to mentor others going through the process of changing their diet and environment.
