I am a California certified and nationally certified massage therapist. I graduated from Monterey Institute of Touch in 2005 and have continued my training with advanced studies in clinical bodywork and medical massage. My interest in medical massage has grown from my medical/dental background. I have been a Registered Dental Hygienist since 1997.


I began my private massage practice in Monterey, CA in 2005 offering clients injury and surgery recovery therapy, chronic disorder relief, as well as relaxation and stress reduction massage. In addition to my private practice, I have worked at a number of spas, including the Spa at Pebble Beach (Pebble Beach, CA) and Yonka Day Spa (Carmel, CA). In 2009 I married, and my huband and I settled in Ashland, OR. I established my private massage practice in the Rogue Valley, as well as working with Dr. Marc Heller and Dr. Matt Terreri at Southern Oregon Sports and Spine. My husband and I returned to California in 2014 and I have established my private practice in Carmel.


My goal is to provide therapeutically effective treatment and help you connect with your own healing process. I believe that touch therapy creates a intimate human bond that can forge a link between your body, mind, and spirit.
