I am an Certified Aromatherapist, Licensed Reflexologist, IIN Certified Health Coach, Reiki Master Teacher and Certified Tai Chi Instructor. I am the owner of Waves of Change Wellness Center and Angela’s Apothecary in Astoria, Oregon. I've had the pleasure of studying aromatherapy with Jade Shutes at East West School of Herbal & Aromatic Studies and Jennifer Presimone at Jennscents Institute. I am a Licensed Reflexologist and completed training at the Seattle Reflexology and Massage Center.
My work includes serving on the Columbia Memorial Hospital Integrated Therapies team and have been instrumental in bringing aromatherapy into the hospital setting there. Currently I formulate blends that are used in the hospital setting and available in the out patient pharmacy. I teach aromatherapy to volunteer groups, staff and patients and their family members at the hospital, home health and hospice care. My involvement extends into the community teaching aromatherapy at Clatsop Community College.
Angela’s Apothecary is located in the Waves of Change Wellness Center and has an aromatherapy bar for individuals to custom blend products for overall health and wellness. Weekly classes are offered there as well.
Health and wellness have always been a part of who I am. My philosophies encompass body, mind and spirit and my toolbox of skills and modalities reflect that. “I can’t imagine a day without essential oils! It just wouldn’t feel right.”
