Pests Out Now Co-Founders Marilyn and Patricia Smith
Sisters Marilyn and Patricia Smith were born and raised in Watsonville, California. After high school their paths diverged, Patricia attended the University of Oregon Health Sciences Center, in Portland Oregon, while Marilyn attended the College of Notre Dame in Belmont, as well as St. Mary’s in Moraga, both in California.
Marilyn became an educator, including a Resource Specialist Program teacher, school administrator and teacher and healer in Asia for four years. Patricia worked as a registered nurse and hospital administrator, as well as stints with Amnesty International and as a healer and teacher in India for four years.
In or around 2001, both discovered the teachings and methods of Master Zhi Gang Sha, both becoming, after intensive training and instruction, Master Teachers. Marilyn is working full-time as a Master Teacher, traveling to other states and countries to teach and train. She is also the author of the book “Gratitude: A Key to Happiness,” and narrated Master Sha’s audiobook “Soul Communication.”
Patricia, after years in nursing and the medical profession, met Master Sha in 2001, training intensively with him, also becoming a Master Teacher as well as opening her own chronic pain and healing consulting service, Patricia Smith Consulting. One of the catalysts for that was taking up the ancient practice of Qigong, a holistic system of coordinated body posture and movement, breathing, and meditation used for the purposes of health, healing and spirituality.
Their career paths converged with Master Sha and now with Pests Out Now, which follows the wisdom of Master Sha, including helping people, reconnecting people with their souls and aligning of the soul, heart, mind and body, to uplift every aspect of life.
