Daelyn has a passion for spreading positivity and inspiration to others she meets in her life every day in a variety of ways. She has been an elementary school teacher for the past 20 years, but decided to leave the profession in order to follow her dreams and pursue her love of working with people in other ways using complementary therapies and teaching workshops. When her son, Austin, was diagnosed with cancer at age 14 in 2010, Daelyn knew she had to find something to do to care for herself so that she would be a good caretaker for her young son. She learned many forms of crafting and began her own small business centered around sharing products that spread joy. She became a certified Reiki Master Teacher and is a student of Healing Touch Level 3. Daelyn feels that the most important piece of her journey with her son was discovering her true purpose in life. She lost her son to cancer two weeks after he turned 17 in 2013, but felt it was important to learn everything she could about her life through the experience. She went on to earn her 200 hr certification as a therapeutic yoga instructor in order to offer others another way to find healing, peace and happiness in their daily lives. Most recently, she studied under Dr. Amit Sood, professor of medicine at the Mayo Clinic, to become a facilitator of his Stress Management and Resiliency Training program. When she isn’t working, Daelyn enjoys being with her husband and oldest son doing things like riding motorcycles, four wheeling in her cool Jeep, and showing her son’s ’72 Chevelle in order to raise money for her foundation, Rollin’ Dreams®. She is an avid animal lover and spends a lot of time just hanging out with her dogs, especially her great dane! Daelyn is a wanna-be mermaid and dreams of one day living in a house near the beach.
She is excited about this new step of her journey and can’t wait to share it with you!
