Hey ya'll... I was born and raised in El Paso, TX, home of the best Mexican food you can find! Home is where I found my love for dance (and food) at the ripe age of two. I grew up dancing as a competition kid - think Dance Moms without all the craziness. The stage was definitely my home away from home. I have danced professionally for over 25 years and have been teaching others to dance for over 15. I was blessed with a mentor in dance, Rita Job Shaeffer, who believed in and saw something in me that even I didn't see in myself. She saw someone who was a natural teacher and gave me the opportunity to teach others at just 14 years of age. I have been spreading my love for dance ever since and inspired others to find joy in movement, from the tiniest of tots to adults.
In 2009 I was invited by a friend to take my first Zumba class - it ended up being a Zumba certification class! This is where my journey into the world of fitness and wellness began. Dance fitness has changed my life and has helped me on my own personal wellness journey. I became certified in Zumba Basic I & II, as well as Zumba Tomic (kids Zumba).
In 2011 I moved to Los Angeles to pursue my education in dance. Los Angeles was ripe with opportunities to further develop my knowledge within the fitness world. During this time, I trained SPX Pilates through Lagree Fitness and was hooked! This led me to earning my SPX Pilates Instructor Certification.
With my background in dance and fitness, I always inquired to know more about how the body worked. My interest in massage therapy came naturally, then. I am a graduate of the Southern California Health Institute, as a Certified Massage Therapist.
Any professional dancer or athlete has their fair share of injuries, and I am no exception. Knowing how massage therapy has helped me over the years, I feel I have a unique perspective into how massage therapy can benefit others, not only athletes, but all people. I love being able to provide therapeutic care to people with acute or chronic pain from injury or day-to-day strain, as well as those who need some relaxation.
Let me share my passion for Massage, Dance and Fitness with you!
