I’ve always been a free spirit. Blessed with a loving family and a wild imagination, my childhood was filled with exploration and creativity. My penchant for art filled my early life with creative endeavors like painting, dancing, knitting, sewing, singing, making pottery, playing the cello, trombone, and acting. It was later, while attending the University of Santa Cruz, that I found my desire for connection and education shift towards the natural world itself, the entity I had once painted, sculpted, and honored through music. This discovery catapulted me to live in Germany as an Au Pair, study with a Peruvian Shaman and eventually lead me to realize that I wanted to pursue a path in the alternative healing arts.
Pursuing an education in massage therapy was a natural progression. While studying at the Sedona School of Massage in Sedona, Arizona, I had access to teachers from all around the world as well as an incredibly beautiful and powerful environment. It was at massage school that my body consciousness was challenged and expanded. I became more intrigued by movement and breath and all the healing those modalities had to offer. After receiving my certification and working in Sedona at the Center for the New Age, I moved back home to California to explore movement and aesthetics.
Back in Los Angeles I dove into my yoga practice, studying with teachers who I greatly admire and respect. Yoga is a traditional method of joining the individual with the divine. Physically, yoga poses are used to align, tone and strengthen the body; and promote blood flow to all the tissues, glands and organs. In my yoga practice I have gained a greater connection with myself and my being, which I carry on into my massage practice. Yoga lead me to AcroYoga and my life hasn’t been the same since! AcroYoga has provided me so much joy in movement, motivation for strength, and opportunities for communication. I Find movement to be incredibly healing and balancing, and I am committed to continuing my journey into the healing opportunities of the movement modalities, allowing me to be stronger and more present in my life and work.
I completed my aesthetician training at Hacienda Heights La Puente Adult Education, a Dermalogica partnership education program. After working as an aesthetician for a spa chain, I knew I couldn’t sell any skincare products to my clients unless I really believed in their effectiveness and respect for the environment. Naturopathica was a perfect fit for what I wanted to provide! A company that is %100 cruelty free with no animal testing, made in the USA, Recycled packaging materials, and effective organic botanicals. It is my belief that glowing, healthy skin comes from a conscious, effective product and a healthy, happy life.
Eyelash Extensions are a fabulous luxury item. I’ve been creating beautiful lash looks since 2012, experiencing the vast growth and change within the lash industry. Over the years I continue to take new classes and learn new techniques with companies such as Xtreme Lashes, Borboleta Beauty and Sinful Lashes. I use only the highest quality products on the market to create the perfect look for my clients that feels like they aren’t wearing a thing. Every eye is different, beautiful and unique and should be treated accordingly.
