Teaching Assistant - National Holistic Institute, San Jose Campus

I loved helping people have work they love! After graduating from the Core 900 and Advanced 450 programs, I assisting instructors of the Core 900 and the Advanced 450 NMT programs in preparing the room for class; working with, guiding and supporting students in their CORE and ANMT education via in-class support, one-on-one tutoring, and hosting open labs. By fostering hands-on tutoring and lab sessions students gained confidence and raised their test scores.

Professional Athlete Experience

I've worked with NHL, NFL, NBA, and MLB players, the Santa Cruz Triathalon Association, the Ballet San Jose, and Ironman athletes providing customized sessions based on the individual athlete's needs, increasing range of motion and driving performance.

Military Experience

After high school, I served in the Army for 8 years. I became a Common Skills & Tasks Instructor, specializing in Land Navigation, and taught Remedial PT, leading hundreds of Physical Fitness training sessions. I also developed a Pre-Basic Training program, for new recruits, that's now called Future Soldiers and is used country-wide!

I liked how Talitha new every part she worked on and let me know what those were for me. Also, to be more aware of how to help myself heal and to be able to use proper guidance for my workouts to better protect muscle groups to get the most out of what my body can really do! Thank you Talitha!

Talitha's bodywork helped a lot in giving me relief from pregnancy-related back pain. I'm so thankful and have mentioned her to my doctor and midwives so they can recommend her to their other clients as well. :-)
