A Dynamic Duo
“Yin and yang” best describes the partnership between Coventry’s co-owners, Jacki Smith and Patty Shaw. These two powerful women are as different as two sisters can be; where Jacki is extroverted, Patty is introverted. Patty can be more cautious about change while Jacki will run in headfirst and see what happens. Jacki is filled with bursts of inspiration while Patty reads the deeper, more secret level of the people around her. Together, with their wit and witticisms, they are an amazing team that that is fun, funny, and filled with laughter.
The deep love and respect they have for each other is their secret sauce of success. Every day they help each other heal and evolve along the journey that is Coventry. Leaning on each other’s strengths and shoring up each other’s weaknesses, they celebrate their differences. These “Wonder Twins” (born nine years apart) come together from differing spiritual paths and passions. What they discovered as they worked together in creating the healing magic of the Coventry products is that no matter what the wrapping, we are all looking for a deeper connection to our higher power.
Jacki has been studying ancient magical traditions and interpreting them for use in today’s modern world since 1992. She is internationally known both for her award winning books and the Coventry Creations line of intentional candles, oils, and sprays. Jacki’s earthy, practical approach to magic takes out the spooky and adds in a flavor of lighthearted humor. Her studies in theology, tarot, herbalism, astrology, world religions, and psychology inspired her to write Coventry Magic and co-author DIY Akashic Wisdom with Patty. Jacki is also co-host to “Keep it Magic Radio,” with Storm Cestavani, this bi-monthly podcast is hit with 10,000 + active listeners every show.
Patty, is the co-owner of the Candle Wick Shoppe and Coventry Creations with her sister. Patty is a Reiki Master and Director of the Dharma Room Reiki Clinic which opened in September 2010. It has always a dream of hers to give back to the community, one person at a time, in a way that would be personally rewarding and life changing. Patty teaches reiki classes, founded the Reiki Healing Center, hosts a reiki share and clinic, and offers private appointments for advanced reiki healing.
Patty is also the author of Healers Almanac and co-authored DIY Akashic Wisdom with Jacki. Patty is a Minister with UCM (Universal Church of the Masters) and earned her Reiki Master degree in 1999. She is also a spiritual counselor and works with the Akashic Records during healing sessions.
Jacki and Patty live in southeast Michigan with their families, where they run a multitude of businesses, teaches classes, consults spiritually, and in general, run amok. This is not just a job for these sisters; it is who they are, their passion and their gift to the world.
These two don’t stop and that is what keeps Coventry fresh, connected with the daily grind of life and empathetic to their customer’s needs. You may find similar products from other vendors, but none have the experience, commitment, and passion for what they do like Jacki and Patty at Coventry Creations.
