Cherie graduated with a degree in Biotechnology and worked 3.5 years doing various kinds of research (Liver, Breast Cancer, COPD).  Despite the lofty goals of these projects she found the work to be unfulfilling.  Her contribution was too small of a brick on too large of a wall.  As a result, Cherie wanted to be more involved in people’s health but not within the confines of the traditional medical establishment. Her journey lead her to enroll at Reiki Rays.

Upon completion of her holistic wellness programs, Cherie was  invited to join  RRI as our Spiritual Healing Director, focusing on assisting our students in blending their personal and spiritual lives. She specializes in Ayurvedic and Hindu studies, and conducts local and private workshops on behalf of Reiki Rays in Reiki, Yoga, Chakra Balancing, and Nutritional Consulting in South Dakota.
