About Me

This is usually the hardest part for me...telling people about who I am.  But, I am going to give it a try.  I was born in Oxnard but, did not come back to Ventura County till 1984.  I came to massage therapy late in life after working different jobs that were satisfyingly the time.  It was not until my father passed away unexpectedly in 2011 that I realized it was time to pursue Massage Therapy.  One fateful January day,  I walked into the  Kali Institue of Somatics and Massage and spoke to the director Nancy.  I was planning on attending the later massage program as I was still unsure and grappling with making such a drastic decision. What I am so thankful for is that Nancy said, why are you going to wait? 

Yes, really why was I waiting...I signed up for the massage program and graduated in May 2012. 

I began working for Massage Envy in 2013 after trying unsuccessfully to go out on my own upon hindsight was too soon for a new massage therapist,such as myself  

Where I enjoyed working, honing my craft, building my confidence and enjoying how my practice has evolved.      

As 2017 rolled  around I had started feeling that it was time to start thinking about my next step...I started feeling restless and it was not until December 2019 that I made my mind up to leave Massage Envy and continue my practice on my own!

So, that’s my story so far and I am excited to see what the next chapter will look like😁

With much love,
