"Seeing clients at Nordic House Spa is my dream. It is the culmination of a personal journey that began in 2007 when I lost my father to cancer. It took me years  to realize that what I wanted in life was to help people deal with pain of any kind."

"I hope that my little dream can become a place for you to unwind and replenish your strength."

You can find me at various local and statewide cancer events, speaking about Oncology Massage. 

And, as of 2020, I will be teaching Oncology Massage as part of Greet the Day's faculty.

I am also part of the Mercy Hospital's Infusion Center massage team in Sacramento, CA.
