Meet the Witch

When I was 22, in August of 1999, the Goddess Hekate came to me with a message:  She instructed me on what my future was going to look like.  She told me that I needed to teach and create a safe and sacred space for the Olde ways to be taught, embraced, and spread.  I was taken aback, as I had no previous business experience and I was so very young!  But Hekate is not a Goddess to be ignored, and just a few months later, in November of 1999, I opened the doors to my brick and mortar Shoppe, Pandora's Box, in Connecticut. 

I was raised Roman Catholic, but being from an Italian family, this had a bit of a mystical aura.  My great aunt, who was like a grandmother to me, was a self proclaimed Witch, albeit still Catholic.  She had the gift of psychic sight and dreams as well as a palpable magical energy that could be felt by anyone who was lucky enough to be in her presence.  Everyone knew she was a Witch; she called herself that!  So the idea of, and the word—Witch—was not ever scary to me; rather it was a term of pride, allure, and respect.

In college I took a variety of classes on psychology and anthropology.  It was in an anthropology class that I first discovered the Goddess.  I was blown away, and my whole world shifted from that moment on!  I quickly began researching further into the world of Witchcraft and the ways of the Goddess, and that started the dominos falling in just the ways they were meant to.  I met my first mentor in 1998 and began studying under her the magick of olde.  I also taught myself how to read Tarot, and dove into any and all available reading materials, classes, and spiritual retreats.  It became quite evident to me that I was a natural Witch, and always had been.  Not long after,  Hekate came into my life and guided me on the path which I am still on today, 25 years later. 

From the very first months of opening my Shoppe I began offering classes.  I taught, along with other trusted colleagues, every month for the next 21 years. Pandora's Box offered workshops on a wide variety of topics relating to metaphysics, Witchcraft, Wicca, Spellcraft, Reiki, Shamanism, and more.  But when the pandemic hit in 2020, I had to stop offering the in-person classes for safety reasons.  During this time, my online shoppe increased greatly, making it challenging to also reinstate the in-person classes that I so dearly loved and know that I am meant to teach. 

Which leads me to here and now.  As a Witch, Priestess, and Reiki Master, I am thrilled to be able to offer my 25 plus years of knowledge to a broader audience!  I so look forward to continuing my work as a Priestess of Hekate and the Olde Ways, sharing my experiences, guidance, and growing wisdom. 

Welcome, and Blessed Be!
