Born in Massachusetts. My career as a professional ballet dancer in Europe, then as a medical research laboratory assistant in Germany and Switzerland, span the arts and sciences. While living in Switzerland, I suffered a severe Achilles tendon rupture, which led me down the road of experiencing a variety of holistic modalities to help my healing process. I eventually founded Birthlight Zurich in 2005, a center for prenatal yoga, aquatics and massage and had many pregnant women attending classes and receiving massage treatments.
I currently live in Bonita Springs, Florida. I offer prenatal massage and yoga, as well as other specialty treatments at the Healing Center at Reflections, in Fort Myers. I am also the resident massage therapist at the Family Birth Center of Naples on Immokalee Rd since 2012, and teach Massage Therapy and Workshops for Estheticians at the Bonita Springs School of Massage & Beauty. 
In my free time, I love gardening and singing Kirtan.
