Originally from a small town in New Jersey, at the age of 21 I decided I needed to get out of my comfort zone and move onto something new. I bought a one-way ticket, packed 2 suit cases and headed to Hawaii. While on the beautiful island of O'ahu, my eyes were opened to a different way of life. My interest for holistic health grew and I decided my journey as a bodyworker was about to begin. I began looking for a place to study and my search led me to a beautiful town in Arizona surrounded by red rocks and filled with people that shared my passion. I couldn't have picked a more perfect place to study massage than Sedona.
After massage school I made my way back to Hawaii where I spent my mornings working as a naturalist/tour guide, taking people to swim with wild dolphins. I met people from all over the world and got to see things that I thought were only part of my dreams. I spent my afternoons working at an incredible spa on the North Shore sharing my love of bodywork with anyone that would allow me to. I was living a dream.
After 6 beautiful years in the Hawaii sun, sand and water, I felt like I wanted more. I took myself to a different coast and started exploring the shores of California. In California I deepened my practice of yoga and completed my 200hr teacher training.
The past several years I have maintained my massage, craniosacral therapy and yoga practice and as I felt my CST practice towards pediatrics in 2018 I made the decision to dive into becoming a doula. I love the connections created with my Doula families and I am constantly inspired by what a woman’s body is capable of. I don’t see me ever getting tired of being part of the team guiding families through childbirth
I enjoy the constant learning experience bodywork, yoga and being a Doula bring to my life. Now planting my feet on the sand on the Emerald Coast I can't wait to see what is in store for me.
