A Tarot Card expert with flourishing clientele, Semy practices in her "Mystic Cottage" on her spacious wooded property made up of three plateaus, each one about thirty feet higher than the other.

Semy is also know as the "Squirrel Lady" in her small village town. A scientist in many veins, a spiritual healer, an artist and a writer, a dancer, and in the mundane world, a registered nurse with a bachelor of science in nursing.
