She gave birth to three wonderful children and wanted to spend more time with them.  She converted her garage to a functional day care called Fun Times Daycare with 2 employees while still finding the time to manage the restaurant.  After selling the restaurant is when she began learning Reiki.  Paula’s Reiki teachers included William Lee Rand, she received the Usui Master training in Machu Picchu, Peru, and she has her Level III Master in Serenity Vibrational Healing with crystal bowls and illumination, and continues her training in Shamanism and Quantum Healing Techniques. She is also trained in Seven Sacred Flames Reiki.
