About our President, Cherri Pedrioli
Cherri was born and raised in Sonoma County. She has two children, three step-children and five grandchildren. Since 2004, she and her husband have owned a successful plumbing business in Santa Rosa, CA. At an early age her passion for assisting people and animals was evident. She even entered a nursing program when she was 16 years old but due to certain circumstances, she lost her faith in Western Medicine and stopped the program.
For several years, she struggled with her own health issues, which Western Medicine was not able to resolve. She began searching holistic alternatives and in 2010 had her first energy healing session with a Reconnective Healing practitioner. After a few more sessions, she attended the next Reconnective Healing training program and has been a Reconnective Healing practitioner since 2012. She feels fortunate to have assisted in many wonderful healings, such as broken bones healed, a black eye gone the following day and stage 4 cancer going into full remission.
Her passion now is also directed at making the Santa Rosa Holistic Chamber of Commerce a thriving and compassionate chapter. She is driven to integrate holistic alternatives with Western Medicine for the greater good of all individuals. She welcomes you to become a member of the Santa Rosa chapter and their growing holistic community.
Cherri is the owner of Reconnect Mind Body Soul in Santa Rosa, CA
