Animal Communication Expert Annie Bourke Shares Fascinating Stories From Animal Perspectives

Today’s Guest

Annie Bourke

I’m so excited to introduce to you today’s guest, Annie Bourke, who has spent the last 10 years as an animal communication expert and medium.

Annie discovered her ability to talk to animals as a little girl, having conversations with her little ginger cat as if it was no big deal. After the passing of her cat, Annie realized she had missed an opportunity to learn more about her feline companion and felt the calling to learn more about animal communication. 

Today Annie has fully tapped into her ability to communicate with animals and has been an animal medium for over 10 years. She supports animal parents to better understand their animals through having an animal conversation and finding out what’s going on in their world, particularly with behavior or health issues. Her skills are also helpful to bereaved animal parents as they navigate through the grief process to reach peace of mind through connecting with their animals’ souls and spirits, and asking questions that the parents want answered.
