I truly believe in the work that I do and I put my heart and soul into every massage. My passion comes through in my touch. I have a very compassionate and intuitive touch that allows me to feel patterns of tension in the body, often finding tight spots my clients didn’t realize were there. I use intuition, breathwork and mindfulness techniques, to increase my clients’ awareness and assist the body in its natural ability to heal and relax. The work I do is rooted in my belief that the body already knows how to heal itself, all I do is facilitate that process.

My love for massage began very early in life. I come from a family of massage therapists and grew up giving and receiving massage and understanding its therapeutic benefits. I decided to turn my interest in massage into a career. I graduated from the Boulder College of Massage Therapy in Boulder, Colorado, in 2010 and have been loving my career ever since.

I lived on the front range of Colorado for four years while attending massage school and college, but I couldn’t stay away from my home state for long. In 2012 I decided to move back to California and surround myself by the beauty of Santa Cruz. Since moving here, I’ve worked in several high-end spas, including The Ritz Carlton, but none have ever been as nice and as welcoming as the Well Within. I love looking out onto our tranquil Zen garden and hearing the trickling of water while I work. I have built a community of clients, colleagues, and friends at Well Within that I hope to nourish for years to come.

When I am not at work I likely have my nose in a textbook or my feet in the sand. I am currently studying Nutritional Science at San Jose State and will be a registered dietitian by 2020. The relationship between food and health is fascinating to me. My education allows me to have a more holistic perspective on the body and informs my approach to massage. I also enjoy walks on the beach, meditation, running on West Cliff drive, hiking in the redwoods, and cooking for family and friends.

I am so delighted to be a part of the Well Within family and to be contributing to this beautiful sanctuary for our community.
