"A couple of years ago, in the ICU at Mt Sinai hospital after having open-heart surgery, my long road to recovery began. An angel, Jill Pettijohn came along. Being disoriented with all the medications, I knew I needed nourishing food that would revitalize my body! Jill arrived with jars of teas, cooling organic jello's and vegetable mineral broths. I drank it all !! My body slowly started returning to itself. It did not take much, then I understood the importance of food as medicine. To be attuned to food in this way is a very special gift. And preparing just the right kind food for people who have special needs requires someone who walks with a consciousness connected to food on a vibrational level. Jill has this! She uses food as a bridge, helping people to connect the vitality of their body with the vitality of their spirit. I am very grateful for how she intuitively knew what it was that I needed at a moment of great physical trauma in my life. "

"How do I thank you, Jill, for helping me and my family to sooth our breaking hearts. You came to us and brought a calm and spiritual presence. As we gathered around the bed of my magnificent but dying husband and father to these sad children, you blessed him and us then sang these chants that were hauntingly beautiful. Your voice is that of an angel. Through our tears, we felt a sense of peacefulness for him and for us. It helped us to breathe through the loss. You truly have a gift of healing."

Laura Hudson

" Jill was an integral part of our support system when we brought our 11-month-old daughter home on hospice care. Her elegant, healthfully delicious meals nourished us so we could show up fully for all of the demands of caring for our medically complex baby girl who had to be watched by a skilled caregiver 24/7 due to her tracheostomy and ventilator. What our baby most wanted was to be held close in loving arms. Jill spent countless hours rocking her, singing to her, and delighting her highly attuned ears with various bird sounds. Jill’s loving presence in our home brought peace and comfort to all of us. She laughed with us, cried with us, prayed with us, and joined us in our steadfast commitment to celebrate every moment we got to spend with our precious baby girl. When our daughter passed away, we asked Jill to lead her burial ceremony because we knew she would attend to it with grace and delicate reverence. It was beautiful, simple, and honest. Jill shows up with the steady presence of a wise elder and a heart that remains open to love even in the most difficult of circumstances. "
