Movement and and bodywork has been an ever deepening passion of mine over the last decade. I am a Kripalu Certified Yoga Teacher, International Thai Massage Instructor, and Reiki Practitioner. Since receiving my formal massage license in 2018, I have taught massage and yoga at National Holistic Institute of Massage in San Francisco, Arizona School of Integrative Studies in Tucson, the International Training Massage School in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and at Burning Man.


Outside of my life as as a massage therapist, I enjoy backpacking, rock climbing, and Acro Yoga. My favorite experiences include a thirty day backpacking and rock climbing course with the National Outdoor Leadership School in Cochise Stronghold and running logistics for parties on the 569-mile John Muir Trail with the Southern Yosemite Mountain Guides. 

I believe in a strong work-life balance to sustainably provide the best services, every time.
