I’m a Lifestyle Blogger, Good Wytch and Book Author who weaves a little magic into every aspect of my life. I love to set beautiful tables and plant wonderful gardens, talk to my healing herbs and flowers and give endless kisses to my cats. I cherish living a family-centered life filled with plenty of Sunday dinners , and lots of love and enchantment. I always stop what I’m doing for afternoon tea. 

For close to 30 years I was the president of Schreibman Jewelers, one of Northeast Ohio’s largest and most prestigious bridal registries, jewelry, gift and tableware businesses.

It was during my years in retail that I discovered that many were drawn to me for my gift of teaching them to live every day with beauty and passion.  

I know that creating a life you love is all about empowering yourself to make the healing choices that get your creative juices flowing. I see life as a celebration, a personal tailored seasonal feast that you get to enjoy every day! A life well lived is what I want for you, full of pleasure, love and passion, intimacy, beauty, glowing health and radiant energy.

My clients have referred to me as “a feast for the senses, a coach that speaks to all the senses as well as to the heart.” Another said, “I totally recommend her to anyone looking for more connection to themselves, their loved ones and their own lives.”

I have always been drawn to promoting a seasonal, sensual way of living, eating and being and I love to teach a sustainable and seasonal way of looking at your whole life. There’s nothing I love more than to spend long days in my gardens tending the healing herbs, fruits and vegetables, promoting healing through herbalism, flower and gem essences, aromatherapy and Reiki, cooking gorgeous, healthy and delicious meals for my family (both four-legged and two) and friends while brewing delightful herbal potions to help keep you healthy, gorgeous and sexy all over, inside and out.

If you ever run into me you can count on me asking you:

“What’s your secret dream? Let’s nurture it!”

Inspired by the pages of Victoria and British Country Living magazine ,  I have built the City Wytch Secret Tea Society on Substack. This magical community is full of beauty and celebration and it's where I share my secrets for living a charmed life.

Your contributions inspire and empower me to create my next book and continue sharing my magic with the world. Thank you so much for joining me on this enchanted journey. I appreciate you so very much. 

I live and work with Jim , my husband of 40 years in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. I like to joke and say that my favorite job right now is that of “Fairy Granny!” Jim and I became first time grandparents in November when our son Alex and daughter in law Angie had their first child, a darling little boy named Wolfgang , aka Wolfie!

I am owned by 17 full sets of vintage dishes, hundreds of books, 3 cats, a dog, several horses, a swarm of wild honeybees, a garden full of herbs, fruit, vegetables and old rambling roses, too many bottles of vintage perfume and very soon, a flock of heirloom chickens!

I moved my writing here to Substack so I could offer a wider variety of content to subscribers. My  once a week newsletter is free  and comes out every week. My free newsletter is full of stories, recipes, food, organic and sustainable home & garden musings, seasonal rituals, and plenty of surprises.

Let's sit down in our comfiest chairs and take thyme for tea while talking together about our lives and stories in the spirit of companionship, curiosity and care. There will be lots of Wytchyness and plenty of surprises!

I hope you'll consider joining us as a paid subscriber! I have always wanted my newsletter to be free because the City Wytch News has information in it  that I want everyone to be able to enjoy. Every time I try to put my writing behind a paywall, I get completely frustrated , not to mention coming up with a screaming case of writers block. 

My fundamental belief is that people in general are generous , decent and kind hearted, and my hope is that those who can afford to support the City Wytch Secret Tea Society will subscribe to keep it free. Just like public radio, you’ll be subscribing and giving a gift to others who cannot afford to do the same. And, just like public radio, when you join as a paid subscriber, I’ll send you a little wytchy gift, hand picked and possibly handmade by me!

I love to connect with my readers, and in my weekly newsletter, I share my thoughts, updates about events, a discussion of what I've been doing and so much more. Feel free to browse my past newsletters and stop by at the beginning of each week to read my latest note to you.

The City Wytch Secret Tea Society is a reader-supported publication. To support my work and keep it a free newsletter, I hope that you’ll consider becoming a paid subscriber.

Stay up-to-date

Newsletters will arrive right into your Inbox. I do hope you’ll enjoy being a part of the newsletter but if you later decide that it’s not for you, it’s easy to unsubscribe using a simple link at the end of each newsletter. I will miss you, but you can come back anytime. There’s always a place for you at my table!

I’m so excited to welcome you into my Backyard, my Kitchen & my Home.

Let’s play! Let’s have fun! let’s turn our magic all the way up!
