Kelly Markey Reiki Master Teacher

Kelly Markey, Certified Reiki Master Practitioner

Kelly is a Reiki Master Teacher who works to bring peace, balance, and healing to both people and animals through the power of Reiki.

A lifelong fan of the written word, Kelly graduated with a B.A. in English from the University of Mary Washington in 2005. From there, she moved to Richmond, where she began a career as an advertising copywriter. Kelly's introduction to Reiki came by "chance" or as she calls it a "cosmic non-accident," when she met a Reiki practitioner while producing a radio spot at a local studio.

Having long felt the presence of divine energy in her life and intrigued by her unexpected meeting, Kelly began researching Reiki. She received a few Reiki sessions of her own and experienced its powerful benefits firsthand. Inspired by those experiences and the incredible pull she felt to share Reiki with others, Kelly began her training in Usui Shiki Ryoho in 2008. In 2009, she achieved her Reiki Master Practitioner certification and in 2010 she became certified as a Reiki Master Teacher.

Kelly's deep respect and love for animals and the natural world also led her to pursue education in Animal Reiki. In 2010, she completed Advanced Animal Reiki training with Kathleen Prasad, Founder and Director of Animal Reiki Source and President of the Shelter Animal Reiki Association. Kelly continues to train in Animal Reiki and hopes to one day start a volunteer Reiki program for animals in local shelters and sanctuaries.

In 2009, Kelly began her own Reiki practice, called Divine Connection Reiki. She currently conducts sessions for people at her office in the Boulders Acupuncture & Natural Healthcare practice and visits her animal friends in their homes. She also teaches classes for all degrees of Reiki and is a member of the International Association of Reiki Professionals. When not giving Reiki sessions, Kelly enjoys spending time with her awesome husband, beautiful daughter and playful kitty, Rue.
