Cherie was introduced to alternative health practices after years of suffering from migraines and chronic pain. It was her own personal experience that encouraged her to pursue this path professionally.

In 2009 Cherie graduated from Healing Mountain Massage School in Salt Lake City becoming a National Board Certified Massage Therapist. After becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist she explored other alternative healing practices that led her to practicing Munay-Ki Shamanic Healing, Reiki Energy Healing, Crystal Healing, Craniosacral Therapy, Reflexology and Meditation.

In 2010 Cherie was adopted into the Lakota Sioux healing path. She was granted permission to pour sweat lodge and became a sacred pipe carrier. In 2012 she entered the sacred arbor as a Lakota Sundancer. In 2014 she completed her 4 year commitment to vision quest where she spent 4 days fasting in prayer each year in the wilderness. In 2016 Cherie was initiated as a Reiki Master.
