April holds a Bachelor's Degree in Public Communication and has more than 1000 hours of massage specific and health related training in order to maintain her Certified Massage Therapist qualifications in the state of California. For the first 15 years of her working life, April was in public relations and marketing for the high-tech world of Silicon Valley. Having lived and worked under those pressures, her career change to massage therapy came with a passion for understanding stress management. She now enjoys talking with her clients about their stresses and its effects including anxiety, insomnia, digestion problems, irritability and more. April can provide guidance and education about the latest science behind the effects of stress and how you can better manage your day-to-day pressures.
