In the early 90’s I moved to San Diego and soon found a position at The Chopra Center for Well Being.  I began in the kitchen helping to prepare special meals for guests in the Pancha Karma program, until my heart led me to become an apprentice to the therapists.  I was pleased to learn that methods I was being taught were from Dr. John Douilliard who was the former director, and  came from the Maharishi lineage where Dr. Douilliard also was a director. Dr. Chopra was on site often back in those days and would hold Satsangs once a month, teaching us about Ayurveda and spirituality. This experience sparked the beginning of my path as a healer.

I enrolled in a 1000 Hr Holistic Health Practitioner program where I was trained in several massage modalities as well as Herbs and Nutrition (Ayurvedic Body Therapy classes were not available then). Upon completing I became an Intern at The Optimum Health Institute, and gained more experience facilitating guests that were undergoing intense cleansing and regaining their health and vitality.  

Soon following, I managed a private practice of massage and teaching Yoga classes for 16 years in San Diego. I also trained and practiced as a Holistic Midwife for 10 of those years and acquired more skills such as organic farming of vegetables and medicinal herbs, which I used to create a pharmacy for my clients and myself.  During that time I also raised two beautiful sons.

I moved to Nevada City, Ca in the spring of 2016 to return full circle to my path in Ayurveda. I have been trained at the California College of Ayurveda in all the classical Ayurvedic Body Therapies for Pancha Karma and for Day Spa.  I quickly joined the team at The Ayurvedic Healthcare Center becoming the lead therapist for Pancha Karma and Day Spa therapies until opening my own practice in 2019. I am an Ayurvedic Health & Wellness counselor and clinical Ayurvedic Body therapist specializing health consulting, cleanse & detox programs that can include Pancha Karma therapies, from a referal by an Ayurvedic Doctorl  As well as providing therapies, I am an experienced Ayurvedic chef, & educator.

I am currently an instructor with Healing Mountain teaching Ayurveda, Crystal Healing, & Aromatherapy.
