Reiki & Crystal Master
Owner of Love Your Body & Soul
Hi! My name is Linda, the owner of Love Your Body and Soul. I am a Reiki and crystal master. I have been practicing energy healing for over 4 years. I went to school to be a social worker and worked as a case manager for over 3 years. I left my career knowing I wanted to help people on a different level. So, I tapped into energy healing. I wanted to carry on my father's gift of helping others. I decided to learn about different energy healing modalities outside of my culture, which is Reiki, crystals, and sound healing. I created Love Your Body and Soul to hold space for diversity; a space devoted to listening, learning, and helping others embrace as their true, authentic self.

Owner of The Edge Salon
I've been doing hair since I was very young; probably around the age of 9 and decided to turn my passion/love into a career. I achieved my PhD at The Academy of Eau Claire, WI, then started working at Salon Medusa for 4 years. A short time after that, I decided to be my own boss and open up my own salon. I had no idea my passion would lead me to be an entrepreneur of many traits today such as extensions, airbrush design, customized shave designs, face painting, and many other services. My wish is to give you a luxurious and unforgettable experience from the moment you walk in to The Edge Salon. I strive to be and give the best experiences.
