VRA Board Member
Kathy Hernandez is a Reiki master and the owner of Gigglemugs *Reiki Infused* Organic Vegan Cookies. She is a vendor at the Burlington Farmers Market and enjoys bringing Reiki to the community through delicious treats and conversation. Kathy and her family relocated from from NYC to Shelburne, Vermont, in August of 2017.
She was attuned to Reiki I Shoden and Reiki II Okuden in early and mid-2017 by Jean Bromage, Reiki Essence Healing in NYC. In mid-2018 she completed Reiki III Shinpiden with Ellen Albertson in Vermont. An avid reader and explorer of esoteric subjects, and influenced by Buddhist theology, she spent much time on the journey to reiki and found it exactly when she was meant to. Kathy spent her time in NYC as a musician and writer. She was the guitarist/vocalist for a three-piece metal band for over a decade, followed by several years of studying sitar and indian classical music.
With one foot in the music and art world of NYC and one foot in the corporate world, she was exposed to many a diverse and inspirational circle who inspired her greatly. Kathy looks forward to deepening her reiki practice, connecting with and bringing Reiki to the community, and is genuinely thrilled to be a board member of the VRA.
