Having spent over 18 years working
in a corporate environment for JD Edwards, General Electric, and Sun Microsystems, I made the decision that I no longer wanted
to live out of a suitcase and be responsible for the management of a staff of 75+ employees. It was time for me
to look at my inner soul and decide where the next journey would take me.
I decided to pursue a career as a body worker. I enrolled into the 1,600 hour massage
therapy program at the Center of Advanced
Therapeutics and studied to become a Therapeutic Rehabilitation and Sports Performance and Injury
Therapist. This was over 8 years ago. With a mind for the unique, I advanced my education by receiving certification
as an Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapist under the instruction of Founder Ruthie Hardee.
I also discovered yoga after year’s of performing massage therapy,
gymnastics and weight training took a toll on his body. His first class, however, opened his mind to a much bigger view of
what yoga could offer beyond the physical body, and before long it was evident that teaching and providing massage therapy
was my true calling. My personal experience with massage therapy and yoga allows me to relate to the differing needs
of each person who comes into my massage studio or to the yoga students I teach.
I create a style of my own incorporating a variety of aspects from
his vast massage and yoga background. I am nurturing and compassionate by nature. My orchestration of rest and movement
create inner peace and strength in the body and mind.
When you're doing the work you're meant to do, it feels right and every day is a bonus, regardless
of what you're getting paid.
qualities bloom when we're doing what we love, when we're involving the wholeness of ourselves in our work, both our expertise
and our emotion.
