Sharon Burch perceives life through her instinct and intuition then uses education, planning, and evaluation to guide herself and her clients.
Sharon is a board-certified Public Health Nurse Specialist, an Advanced Practice Holistic Nurse, and a holistic Health and Wellness Nurse-Coach. She is also certified by the Four Winds Society as an Energy Medicine Practitioner and a Teacher of Dying Consciously.
Sharon has practiced nursing in hospitals, long term care, home care, hospice, and the community-at-large since 1974. She began applying holistic health approaches in 1977 when she prepared to give birth at home. That profound experience inspired her to dedicate herself to empowering people to end ways of being that are not aligned with their values and embody new ways that are stronger, wiser, and more life-affirming instead.
She has authored two textbooks and more than 40 home study CE courses for holistic nurses and massage therapists, founded the nonprofit organization Awakening to Grace, and served as the Holistic Nurse Practice Specialist at the American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA).
Sharon believes that nothing would help the world so much as for people to be supported to make lasting change in their thoughts and behaviors. To that end, she acts with creativity, conviction, and sensitivity to guide and empower her clients and her community.
