I'm of Yaqui and Cahuilla Indian ancestry; born in Spain to Air Force parents--the youngest of nine children. I was raised in Northern California, but spent the majority of my adulthood in the Greater Philadelphia Area. Currently I am working in Norman, Oklahoma.
I am a licensed and certified massage therapist with Fourteen years experience. In 2014, I moved from Pennsylvania to Oklahoma and decided to practice massage as an entrepreneur for the first time in my career.
Graduate of the Pennsylvania School of Muscle Therapy Master Body Worker Program, May 2005 graduating with honors cum laude (GPA 4.77); and I have been a member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) since 2004, currently on the Oklahoma Chapter board and volunteering as Communications Chair. I am nationally certified through the National Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB), and have been since December 2005.
In Pennsylvania, I had practiced therapeutic massage in employee wellness programs and fitness centers, but primarily alongside a respected chiropractic physician, Dr. Karen Kurtas P.C.
The work I do leans toward a clinical approach.
Helping people heal is my passion.
