Although born in a small town in Indiana (USA), LeeAnn has had a love and connection with the Indigenous and spiritual traditions of the world for as long as she can remember. At the age of thirteen she made her first trip with her mother to the Mayan ruins of Tulum, Mexico. She fell in love and felt, for the first time in her life, that she had somehow come home.
In her late teens LeeAnn returned to southern Mexico. During the years since that time she has traveled extensively throughout Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras studying, participating, and continuing her spiritual journey. During these same decades LeeAnn also studied with leading spiritual teachers, academics, and healers of many different traditions throughout the United States.
Today, LeeAnn lives full time in the Tzu'tujil Mayan town of Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala. As a shamanic practitioner, gifted intuitive, community collaborator, and businesswoman, LeeAnn holds a diverse wealth of wisdom and perspective to aid others in finding clarity, alignment, and wholeness in their own lives.
LeeAnn is involved in a number of projects focused on preserving and sharing the sacred stories, songs, artwork, and rituals of the Tz’utujil Maya, as well as projects focused on cultivating sacred community and serving the needs of young adults. To learn more, click the button below.
