Where did you study? Everest College
When did you graduate? 2008
What do you like most about massage? Massage is a career that I feel very privileged to be a part of. It is a position of trust and relationship building. I have learned that the non verbal communication is just as valuable as what the client tells you during your pre massage assessment. I have been practicing massage therapy for over 13 years now. I have worked with a range of clients from office workers, prenatal, oncology & sports teams in the Bay Area. No one client is ever same. My passion is meeting people wherever they are in their self care and helping to educate them on stress/pain management
What are your favorite modalities / specialties? I enjoy all aspects of massage. I spent 2 years learning oncology massage and another 2 1/2 years at Stanford oncology, helping clients through cancer treatments. I have a special love for this modality.
Why do you feel those modalities / specialties are effective? Human touch and self care is very much needed in today’s world of isolation and technology.
Anything special you'd like to share about yourself? I have the travel bug. I enjoy learning from other cultures and sharing experiences. I’ve been to 17 countries and hope to continue my travels soon. Meeting new people has enriched and shaped my life.
