Growing up in a pristine setting at the foot of the magnificent Mt. Shasta, I have been immersed in health and wellness for as long as I can remember. My love of beauty and nature was supported by my parents’ lifestyle. They enjoyed organic food, herbal medicine, yoga and meditation. This was my early introduction to the power of natural health and it has guided me into adulthood.
I became a certified western herbalist in 2013 and went on to get my masters in Traditional Chinese Medicine from Five Branches University in Santa Cuz. Since then I have continued studying and practicing in what has become my passion and my life’s work.
While completing grad school I gave birth to my first baby girl. My body felt drained and uncomfortable. I knew I needed serious rejuvenation. I longed to feel radiant and confident in my own skin again! This led me to cosmetic acupuncture and facial guasha -- which has additional healing powers of its own.
