About me: My work is to encourage & inspire people to stretch, move, and live lives of wellness. Over the last decade, I dedicated myself to movement & body therapies. The majority of my practice has developed around Kripalu Yoga, Myofascial, Nuad Thai, & Sports Massage Techniques. This dedication developed into my own Massage Service & Wellness Education company, Ikigai Wellness, LLC. Although I provide massage services, I am strongly called to empower individuals to take part in their own self-care journey. Much of what I do, you can do for too, with some training & awareness. Isn’t that an encouraging thought!

When I am not in the office, you will most likely find me traveling to play disc golf, trekking, running, going rock climbing, taking new movement education classes, or playing board games with my friends.
