Greer’s education at the Australasian College of Health and Sciences (now the American College of Health and Sciences) in Portland, OR allows her to bring her knowledge of herbs, aromatherapy, nutritional, and alternative healing modalities to the table- literally!

Her roles as a mother, doula, and midwife’s assistant bring the nurturing and compassionate energy to not only to her expectant mother clients, but to all those in need. Greer apprenticed locally under Marilee Pinklton, CPM and completed her Birth Assistant training with Ina May Gaskin, CPM and Pamela Hunt, CPM at The Farm in Summertown, TN in 2004. Greer gives thanks and sends blessings to all of her teachers.

Julie Fisher, Sound Practitioner & LMT
Julie is a Delaware native, who has been studying and practicing intuitive healing arts since 1998. She began her career at what is now called The Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York City, where she became a certified Holistic Health Counselor. Julie began her therapeutic hands on training at Ohashiatsu Institute, and then accepted an opportunity to study with master bodyworker Yamuna Zake, creator of Yamuna Body Logic and Yamuna Body Rolling. Julie was Yamuna’s protégé for 7 years and taught Level I of the Yamuna Body Rolling Practitioner Certification training. During her time with Yamuna, Julie attended Swedish Institute in New York City and earned an Associates Degree in Massage Therapy. It was also during this time that Julie experienced the work of Jodi Serota, a Sounder Healer, Artist, and Channel. Meeting Jodi was a powerful experience for Julie because it gave her context for the natural gift for sound she had discovered as a teenager.
In 2001, she became a New York State Licensed Massage Therapist, and shortly thereafter, New York City endured a great tragedy inspiring Julie to take her practice of therapeutic bodywork to Ground Zero, and eventually opened a private practice dedicated to 9/11 survivors and professionals working in the neighborhood. In 2010, Julie decided to close her private practice and make the transition from Massage Therapist to Sound Practitioner. This transition was solidified after living in Hawai’i for a few years, where she lead group Sound Meditations with local Sound Healer Yojana Grace. Julie moved to Nashville, TN where she held weekly Sound Meditations and workshops at HaLe Wellness Center. She then moved to Asheville, NC, where she met and collaborated with Billy Zanski, owner of Skinny Beats Drum Shop. Julie is now back in Delaware, where she has been invited to hold her Sound Meditations at local yoga studios and has collaborated with many of the local wellness practitioners.
