The success of that effort led her to the East West College of the Healing Arts in Portland, Oregon. Fascinated with the myriad of approachesto health and well being, she graduated in 2007 with a National Certification and began working alongside a Chiropractor and a Personal Trainer.
Arriving in Los Angeles in 2009, with the warmth of the sun fueling her passion, she extended her training to include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Aromatherapy, energy-shifting Polarity Therapy and Hot Stone and spa treatments.
