I began my career in the holistic health field 23 years ago working in the natural food industry. The knowledge I accumulated over the years about nutrition and nature’s medicine helping people choose natural products, supplements, and body-care products, combined with my education and reinforced by my own lifestyle practices…Well, it makes a partnership with me of great value to your health.
I earned my 700-hour certification from the Colorado School of Healing Arts in ‘02. After 3 years in practice, I returned to get advanced specialized training (A.O.S.) in Advanced Neuromuscular and Cranio-Sacral Therapy ’05-06 and have been studying and continuing to master it ever since.
From ’08 -’14, I embarked on a venture to founding a small wellness community from scratch in Wheat Ridge, CO. After 6 years, I experienced burnout and a healing crisis that led my family to relocate to the mountains, to live closer to nature. I wanted more than anything to be able to focus my attention on my clients rather than the daily operations of a 7 room center. And so, I released my duties, shortened my commute, and moved my practice to Golden, where I practiced until we moved.
In the summer of ’19, my husband was offered the opportunity to help open the new Natural Grocers in the beautiful town of Pagosa Springs, CO. We moved our family across the state and have both set up shop it this beautiful mountain town. It was an honor to have served such wonderful clients in my hometown for 17+ years. However, we feel so blessed to have found a place to root ourselves.
In December ’22, I received my certification as a Holistic Wellness Coach (Holistic Nutrition Consultant) at the American College of Health Care Sciences. One more accomplishment in the direction of my ultimate goals.
In case you are interested in knowing more…
I am a 3rd generation Coloradan raised in the western ‘burbs of Denver…I am a dirt-loving, health nut who delights in food, cooking, and the arts. Outside work you will find me with my family and dog Dexter, reading, writing, learning, researching, or listening to podcasts. Or tromping around the mountains, soaking in the hot springs, dancing to live music, or doing aerial yoga.
Dedicated to a path of mastery in my bodywork craft, and with the intention of passing on what I know, I am fully committed to taking time to tune into and attend to my own body, listening to its messages…so that I can continue to provide high-quality bodywork for many years to come.
