In 1990 while working as a business manager of two multi-million dollar businesses, Patricia Newsom James started her career in public safety as a certified reserve police officer. She has owned several businesses including a custom home construction company.
She decided to change directions in her career, in 1993, and became a full-time law enforcement officer. While working as an officer, she responded to several vehicle accidents that involved trains. She knew that as a first responder she would need more life saving knowledge to work this type of accident. So she attended Rogers State University in the evenings and received her State certified Emergency Medical Technician license.
Patricia retired after several years of public safety as a Police Chief and EMT in Missouri. Starting her next career in safety she has been certified as a CPR, First Aid and Basic Life Support instructor through the American Heart Association and worked as a safety representative for Austin Safety Group and United DC companies where part of her responsibility was to teach CRP and First Aid to their employees.
She attended William Woods University [2003-2006] to get her Secondary Education Degree as she enjoys teaching.
Patricia teaches CPR, First Aid and BLS because she believes this is an essential and vital part of safety not only at work but most importantly to be able to save your child or any family member that could require CPR or First AID.
Although Patricia has donated her time here at Spirit Sense while finishing her studies as a Reiki Master and Reflexologist we are happy to have her as our Office Manager where her skills are put to the test. 🙂
*Patricia Newsom James is a Reiki Master/Teacher here at Spirit Sense School of Healing. Over the past three years, Trish took every single energy class offered by Nicole Newsom at Spirit Sense to obtain her Reiki Master/Teacher certifications. This training included Reiki Levels I, II, III, 50-hours of internship, including Spiritual Response Therapy (SRT) and one-to-one training with Ms. Newsom so she could hone her abilities and teach energetic skills to others.
WARRIOR WITHIN WORKSHOPS were inspired by Trish’s personal perspective of her military son after he went to Afghanistan. Trish organized the community of family and friends to supplement the rations and personal supplies that the troops needed. And, when her son was discharged from the military, as one of a few survivors from his platoon, she sat up all night listening to him talk about the war with a mother’s heartbreaking understanding and support. It was from this experience, that Spirit Sense started it’s Warrior Within Workshops. Trish has an upfront and personal relationship with the harm that a returning solider with PTSD can do not only to himself but also the family unit. In her teachings, Trish’s goal is to help these young Veterans develop the skills for self-healing and problem solving using holistic healing therapies to balance the body, mind and spirit.

“Trish is a wise teacher and healer whose calm maternal demeanor helped me destress and realize how I was letting my life pass me by…I am a recovering workaholic. Her warm wisdom relaxes and energizes through her classes. I understand that she has only been in alternative healing for three years but she is definitely an old soul. She intuitively knows exactly what my mind, body and spirit need in class using her intuition, knowledge and skills to guide her way.” – Kathleen N., Tulsa, OK
