Born in a small Oklahoma town, Gailynn has always been drawn to nature and to learning. As a child, she was aware of a pure presence near her, but she did not understand its significance until much later in life.  Gailynn followed an academic career, earning a BA in English, an MA in Literature, and a PhD in Public Administration. During her time in higher education, she taught overseas in a Japanese university and was the Director of many programs in higher education—Director of International Programs, of Online Student Services and of Intensive English Programs. Gailynn loved the intellectual richness of university life.

However, intellectual pursuits eventually paled and Gailynn, quite by accident (since she wasn’t a healer and had never heard of divine beings), discovered VortexHealing® in 1997. She subsequently spent every spare vacation hour taking VortexHealing classes until, by Merlin’s divine intervention, she became a VortexHealing teacher. She received her teaching star in 2002 and began teaching part-time in 2006. It wasn’t until 2010, when she more deeply surrendered and let go of her university life, that she was able to fully connect with the presence she had felt since childhood, which turned out to be an archangel. It came into her spine and merged with her energetic system during a group angelic meditation. Among the VortexHealing classes she now teaches is one that Merlin uniquely designed for her and her angel, called Angelic Heart.

Gailynn currently lives in Tempe Arizona with her husband, two pups, and an ever-blooming garden
