About Marti

Once a "City Girl" from Glendale, MO, a suburb of St. Louis, leading a professional life in the apparel industry not only as a major department store retail buyer, but also as a designer and head of merchandising and sales in several ladies apparel companies in the garment industry and traveling all over the world...Now a "Country Girl" settled in the small town of Phelan in the High Desert of Southern CA with my wonderful husband, John, on our Holistic Healing Ranch with alpacas, horses, chickens, kitties and one golden retriever.

The vicissitudes of life have given me so many wonderful fulfilling and challenging experiences.  I am truly blessed.  I have had many challenges along my journey in life and some even life threatening which has led me to be on the spiritual path that I am currently enjoying.  Certainly never a dull moment...that is for sure.  One of my favorite quotes from Winston Churchill that I live by is, "Never, never, never give up!"  So when there have been times that I have felt like "throwing in the towel", that quote comes to the forefront of my mind and I press on!

I was never able to have my own biological children and so I have been blessed to have been able to adopt one of our foster children.  What an adventure that has been....so full of learning experiences that I never would have gotten to experience otherwise...for my daughter, Meagan, I am so grateful.

 I've been blessed with several successful careers, lived in 3 different states in the United States, (Missouri, Kansas & California), traveled to 49 of the 50 states in the USA (all but Maine so far) and have traveled to 17 countries....of course I still have a few places I'd love to travel to that are on "My Bucket List".

My husband, John, and I own Browne Hypnosis Center and are both certified Master Hypnotherapists, Master NLP and Time Empowerment Practitioners, Reiki Masters and Teachers as well as Certified Akashic Records Readers.  John is also an NLP, Time Empowerment and Hypnosis Master Trainer. After my being in the apparel industry and also having a B.S. in Education (teaching degree) and John having his MBA in finance and having been in Banking, Business Consulting and Real Estate, we've both discovered that the love of our life is helping people achieve major break throughs in their lives so they can discover their true heart's desires and live the lives of their dreams.  Therefore, our focus in these golden years of our lives is in Holistic Healing - Energy Healing that is complimentary with traditional medicine.

We both do individual holistic healing sessions with people, put on workshops periodically and have a Meetup group that meets in our home called Manifesting Your Dreams....plus run our ranch. 

I also have another love of my life which is my Fiber Art Business.  I've been creative ever since I can remember...it all started with getting "Hand-Me-Down Clothes from my three older sisters...I never wanted anyone to know I got hand-me-downs so I took the clothes apart and made new things out of the fabric...all of which eventually led me into the apparel industry....and now continuing in that venue with a totally different medium...fiber!  I love to spin hand spun yarn, hand dye yarn, roving and other curly fibers.  Plus I love to knit and crochet hats, scarves, shawls, wall hangings and make wet felted and needle felted items, some of which I sell in my La Tea Da Designs Etsy shop.

My life has been a very unique spiritual journey.  I consider myself to be a spirit being having a human experience.  I am fulfilling my life's purpose and am learning the lessons I came here on this earth to learn.  I am blessed!
