Sandy Norton is a Registered Nurse with a BS in Psychology, and is certified in Natural Wellness from Clayton College of Natural Health. Additionally, she is a Level II Reiki Practitioner, receiving her attunement at the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts in Tempe, Arizona. She has augmented her Reiki practice with Aromatherapy and a one-year certification program in Crystal Healing.

During her nursing career, Sandy has held various positions in traditional Western healthcare, including Cardiovascular Intensive Care, Post Anesthesia Care, Hospice/Homecare, and most recently as Nurse Manager in an office-based Vascular Surgery Center. However, her interests and education over the years and her involvement as a member of the American Holistic Nurses Association have led her to work as a Health and Wellness Coach with a focus on nutrition and lifestyle, as well as energy healing through Reiki and Crystals. Her work as a Wellness Advocate with doTerra has added the dimension of Essential Oils to her repertoire, and she loves to educate others about the amazing healing power of these Gifts of the Earth.
Sandy also has a passion for color and art and was an accomplished floral design artist (New Hope Naturals) and faux finisher (Décor du Jour) for nearly 15 years. As she transformed furniture, walls, and décor items into works of art, she could see the impact that such changes in a person’s surroundings could have on their overall wellbeing! Whether appreciating it or creating it, art in its many forms has the power to raise our vibration and lift our spirits, thereby promoting a healthier you! With this in mind, Sandy created a line of inspirational T-shirts called Sunshine Everyday, and has incorporated these and some of her artistic creations into Sunshine Healing Arts by offering them here on her website.
Sandy lives in St Petersburg, Florida with her husband of 40+ years and their 2 Maine Coon cats, She loves spending time with her 3 sons and their girlfriends, as well as gardening, tennis, and creating art.
