In her early years, she worked as a helper in many prominent households.

In the mid-1950’ s she decided to leave domestic work behind and work for herself. She began by selling trinkets and other goods out of a suitcase.

She gained hundreds of clients many of whom later sought her out for her wisdom, insight and help in dealing with life’s challenges.
