Retha was born an empathic intuitive, sensing the world around her and thinking everyone experienced life in this manner. Working as an unfulfilled IT Software Consultant for over 20 years in the corporate arena she longed for a greater sense of fulfillment, service and purpose. With a love for learning and observing human behavior, Retha became a student of mystery schools in the eighties and an energy worker: a Reiki practitioner, a Pranic healer, and a Shamanic Mesa Carrier graduate from the International School of Shamanism in Atlanta, GA.
Answering to the call to serve, she became a dual Certified Life Purpose and Career Coach in 2006, a graduate from the Life Purpose Institute in La Jolla, California. Satisfying her insatiable hunger for knowledge, Retha obtained a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from the University of Metaphysics, the largest metaphysical institution in the world and is currently completing her Ph.D. at the University of Sedona in Sedona, AZ.
Being a creative, right-brained personality and an out-of-the-box-thinker, Retha has a love for nature, studying human behavior, exploring, adventure, and travel. She believes in the body, mind, and spirit connection and realized that her work at Corporate had trained her to be the captain of her own ship, by assisting her in the merging of her left and right brain for a more secure lifestyle. This led her to launch The Renaissance Shapeshifter website.
Retha, is an empath, spiritual intuitive, and healer.
