Mariella is a 3rd generation psychic, who started reading at age 11. She gave accurate readings to her 6th grade classmates, using only a deck of ordinary playing cards. Her father, the nephew of a Cardinal, was set against her using psychic abilities that her mom also possessed. Raised in a family of strong Catholics, Mariella had to hide her gifts and act as a good, obedient child. She, instead, pursued a career in finance and private law, graduating from the University of Roma, Italy, with a Masterís in Business and Languages. A native Italian, Mariella also became fluent in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Greek. At the age of 24, she came to the US for the first time, as a student, touring some Italian businesses. While on her short term student Visa, she was offered a position from an Italian bank that sponsored her to become a permanent US resident. She was working as an accountant, supervising a large group. But in her spare time, she fulfilled her dream to explore metaphysical realms. 2 years later, she bought a house and converted her ground floor garage into a small shop, selling handmade Italian corals and souvenirs. She started offering readings and advice to friends and walk-in clients, earning both popularity and respect as a talented psychic advisor.
