I was born and raised in Los Angeles by two hard working entrepreneurs. I was taught early on the value & philosophy of dedication & resilience. In my family, my job was gymnastics. I competed for years all over the country and it set a solid foundation for me in physical strength, self-discipline & courage.
I went to Pepperdine University in 2000 but had no idea that I had a passion for wellness until my junior year. I remember taking a chemical nutrition class and it all clicked!! I was so intrigued by the wellness field, but I was only a year away from my degree in education, so I wasn’t changing my major in the homestretch. I did however begin searching & seeking knowledge on my own.
I got married right after my college graduation and had 2 beautiful children: Taylor & Jordan. Being their mom has been the greatest joy, passion and adventure of my life. In fact, I actually signed up for massage school in 2010 as a solution for being able to earn an income while I homeschooled them (for 7 years).
I remember my first massage class… that’s when I knew! Massage therapy was what I was created to do! After I graduated… it only made sense to start my own business. My dad was my very first client. I started off creeping through by referral & the ball started rolling. Before long, I had a steady flow of clients to keep me busy.
In 2019, I was diagnosed with Hashimotos. I was devastated! I went through an extremely stressful divorce a few years before that, and it took a huge toll on me. So, I dedicated all my extra resources to getting my wellness back on track. A few days before my diagnosis, I accepted the invitation to a yoga teacher training. It made absolutely no sense at the time, but all the doors seemed to open up perfectly, so I trusted God & did it. The yoga was so imperative to my healing physically, mentally and spiritually.
When Covid hit in 2020, I was forced to shut my doors for 8 months, but I refused to let it hold me down. Instead, it decided to pivot and thrive. I set my mind on positivity. I revamped my studio, did lots of research on products that would enhance my business, recruited a mentor, & started taking business & personal development classes. My motto was “better every day.” And it really set the stage for a gigantic growth spurt!
When I reopened, I hit the ground running. Clients were pouring back in deprived of touch & healing. I was busier than ever before! In 2021, I had the opportunity to expand my space & construct the yoga studio. I felt so blessed to have the opportunity to expand when so many were being forced to do the opposite.
Now, I am thriving... catering to my beloved VIP clients, teaching Mindful Touch classes and doing my very best to serve as a wellness advocate for all that cross my path. I thank God every day for the opportunities he has given to me. I feel honored & privileged to be here! And, I live a life overflowing with gratitude & joy knowing that I have stepped into my divine purpose!
