Licensed & Board Certified Massage Therapist
Holistic Nutrition & Lifestyle Coach
I have been working as a massage therapist for almost ten years. Not only am I licensed, I am board certified as well. I specialize in deep tissue, structural work, sports massage, and clinical applications for specific injury and procedure cases. Over the years I have had the pleasure of treating professional athletes, individuals coping with serious physical issues ranging from paralysis to joint replacements, and those of us who just need an overall “tune-up”.
I began my career in my hometown of Chicago, where I worked in a wellness center that offered an array of holistic therapies. At this point not only was I learning how to help heal others, I was also learning how to navigate my own health hurdles. This further sparked my passion to learn more about whole body health! From Chicago I went on to study Herbalism and Holistic Nutrition in Tempe, Arizona. It was a wonderful experience which I completed with an internship working alongside a clinical Herbalist specializing in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. As I furthered my education in whole body health, I also continued to grow my massage practice in Scottsdale, which I still maintain throughout the year.
I absolutely love sharing my passion for health and nutrition with my clients, family, and friends. I believe in approaching the body as a whole (body-mind-spirit) in order to achieve optimum health.
After almost 7 years in the desert it was time for a change of climate, which has now brought me here to sunny California!
Right now I am enjoying living in Oceanside, CA with my long time boyfriend Tommy, our dog Willow and two cats Joplin and Banksy. I have a love of plants, music, art, and adventure! In my free time you will either find me in my kitchen cooking up new healthy recipes, practicing yoga, or enjoying the beautiful outdoors!
