Luminea joined the BBVH team in July 2016, where she is thrilled to combine her deep love of animals with her passion for alternative medicine. She previously worked in an emergency veterinary hospital and enjoys the opportunity to build more long-term, personal relationships with clients and patients at BBVH. In 2014 Luminea completed a certificate in Natural Healing for Pets, studying holistic animal care including herbs, aromatherapy, massage, and Chinese Medicine. She became a Certified Animal Reiki Practitioner in 2015 with Highest Honours, and loves to give Reiki to both pets and people! A lifelong learner, Luminea has also trained in crystal healing for companion animals and is currently learning more about essential oils. She is a proud mom to four special rescue dogs: Amarillo and Lucy are both tripawds, Teddy is blind, and Annie is their playful little sister. Luminea loves walking her dogs, reading, and making handmade crafts such as bandanas and bow ties for pets.
