Margaret is a certified Healing Touch Spiritual Ministry Practitioner/Instructor and Certified Clinical Aromatherapist with 25-years’ experience as a School Psychologist. Since her first class in Healing Touch, she has felt called to teach this work and spread healing wherever possible. In 1996, she began coordinating Healing Touch, Healing Touch Spiritual Ministry and Clinical Aromatherapy classes in the Knoxville area and has led retreats and offered healing sessions through local churches.  For over 20 years, she has maintained a private practice in Knoxville and Dandridge, TN. Bountiful Health Magazine published her article on Healing Touch in the treatment of breast cancer. 
As President of ISHA and Director of HTSM, Margaret’s dream is to see this work being taught in areas of need, such as with Veterans, on Indian reservations, in housing projects and in areas of crisis. She volunteers to teach this work in third world areas and shares in the Healing Ministry of her church.
