Starting in 1988 she was an integral part of Hrafnar's work to recreate Oracular Seidh rite (the rite of seeking visions for the folk that is spoken of in the lore) and she has been practicing, teaching and learning ever since. Today she lives in Baltimore with her husband and her beloved cats, and spends her spare time doing what she loves most cooking and singing.

Steve Conway
