My desire to contribute to the alleviation of suffering of others led me to become a massage therapist and yoga therapist. My childhood was profoundly impacted when my father was diagnosed with chronic progressive Multiple Sclerosis. Well-acquainted with the suffering and challenges of chronic illness, I sought out healing practices for myself as I came into my own, including massage, yoga, and meditation. Over 10 years later, I love my chosen profession more than ever!

My active engagement in NYC life enables me to connect with all kinds of folks along a wide spectrum of backgrounds and life experiences. My own favorite activities include:

  • cooking and eating locally and creatively
  • enthusiasm for cycling (city + touring)
  • strength training with kickboxing
  • love of dance, especially in the vicinity of brass bands
  • joyful travel + adventures
