I was recently asked What is Dragonfly ?
Dragonfly is a culmination of a lifelong dream. A magical destination that is a beacon for others on a spiritual journey. A place where art and inspiration are fostered and nurtured daily. A space where everyone is welcome...everyone is seen...everyone is heard. Dragonfly is a community of like-minded souls all helping each other discover and follow their path.
Dragonfly is a place of hope and healing and freedom for all. We honor everyone’s uniqueness, and everyone’s gifts. We love our community and find ways to bring people together and support each other. Dragonfly is a collective of souls who are rising to meet others and help them to rise as well.
My dream began as a small child…a desire to help others, to make them feel beautiful inside and out…
My love of beauty and art led me on a journey as a stylist and photographer, traveling and transforming people…
In the process, I discovered and transformed myself…
With great courage and strength, I left a 30 year relationship involving domestic abuse, battling many years to be free. Somehow, with strong faith and hard work, I have single handedly raised my 2 beautiful daughters, being their sole provider while building my dream.
All the while, I was studying the healing arts, becoming ordained, and helping others on similar journeys.
Dragonfly, once a salon and photography studio, has evolved as well. I have even changed the name to Dragonfly Art & Soul to encompass my new vision.
The pandemic altered my path as well. As salons. were closed down for several months, I needed to pivot to continue to provide for my family. I offered what little retail I had online, sewed masks by hand, and offered free delivery. This little shift turned into the experience Dragonfly is today. We have transcended into a haven for crystal lovers and those seeking healing and guidance. Our boutique features a wide array of local artisan goods, spiritual tools, as well as classes and healing services.
As I enter my 13th year here at Dragonfly, I am finally living my authentic dream. I share my road to freedom with others, with love and encouragement. I am proud to serve my community in Clarence and WNY, and also serve as co-chair to the Clarence Chamber of Commerce.
As we celebrate Women’s History month, I recognize all the strong courageous women who have paved the way and helped shape my path. It is my mission to continue to grow Dragonfly to be of higher service, to continue to advocate for others, and to help people who struggle in abusive relationships. I will continue to be a beacon of love and hope for anyone in need.
