Co-founder of SoulBeing Wellness,
Licensed massage therapist,
My inner compass has always pointed in the direction of the helping profession. A Queens New York native, I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree from The City University of New York at Queens College. Brief experience in the fields of social service and non-profit development, led the desire to engage in work that creates immediate positive impact and change.
Talent for massage began at the early age of 11 years old when my aunt asked me to rub her neck and shoulders one day. She would teach me a couple of techniques, and shortly thereafter we would alternate working on one another. Little did I know many years later, this bonding experience was a foreshadow of acareer. Extensive educational study and hands-on technical and clinical experience at the esteemed Swedish Institute, College of Massage Therapy and Allied Health Sciences in 2001, contributed to my personal and spiritual, as well as professional education and development.
Attuned to the healing art of reiki, I also hold certification in reflexology and recently completed a two-year certification in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST). BCST is a gentle and deeply restorative form of bodywork that focuses on assisting the body towards its own health. It calms the mind, relaxes the nervous system, giving it a “reboot”, and unburdens the heart.
In my successful eleventh year of full time practice, I continue to feel honored to be a part of treating one’s health and tuning into creative ways to lend to one’s wellbeing.
