A strong belief in the importance of physical and emotional health led me to practicing massage. As an avid outdoorsman and a very physically active person, I know what it is to feel the stress, tension and pain from working, playing and living a rich, full life.
I spent many years as an educator, both outdoors (Colorado Outward Bound School) and in the classrrom (4th, 5th and 6th grade). Solid evironmental ethics and a committment to the natural world remain central to my core values. I still spend time outdoors, hiking, mt biking, trail running, and sea kayaking.
A variety of different jobs: working at a spa doing massage, substitute teaching, driving for Lyft, Guiding for a sea kayaking company at Point Reyes, keep me plugged into various communities and allow me to enjoy life on many levels.
