— Wellness Director

I am the Wellness Director for Mindbodyology.  My background is in personal training and in nursing.  I have both an associates and bachelors degree in nursing. I have lived and traveled all over the world and speak both Spanish and English.  I  love anything that has to do with physical fitness as I find that it challenges my mind and body to push beyond limitations. I strive for excellent mental, physical and spiritual wellness everyday, and bring this same attitude to serving our clients. I believe that life is a story, and I am the main character of my story, therefore, I determine the life I create!

Because the mind-body connection is vital; as you cannot have one without the other. I believe to fully tap into one’s potential they must become in tune with their body. Our body is always giving us signals not only about what is going on internally, but what is going on externally as well. When we learn to take care of our body, it is better able to function, which in turn gives us mental health, meaning a life filled with happiness and vitality. I love that the providers at Mindbodyology get this fact, making it the perfect place for me to work!

I engage in a daily energy medicine routine every morning along with 10 minutes of meditation.

— Wellness Assistant

I was born and raised in San Diego, California. I am passionate about planning, organizing, and providing excellent service to our clients.

With many years of hospitality industry experience, I knew I wanted to continue to take care of people, but in a substantial way. When I learned about Mindbodyology and the holistic approach offered to clients, I knew immediately I wanted to be part it.

— Creative Assistant

I am a big dreamer, thinker, creative writer, photographer, storyteller, endless explorer, and lifelong learner.  I truly feel blessed that I get to express my artistic side in my work with Mindbodyology. 

I have always been interested in the mind-body connection. When I was young, I loved learning about history, mainly ancient civilizations, and their advances in science, technology, and overall belief systems. Coming from a background of Western medical professionals, I would always wonder about the Eastern side of things. As I got older and more interested in my own personal wellness and health, I started my own research into alternative methods that became forgotten, when the rise of western medicine began. I found Mindybodyology philosophy to be an open and supportive forum for researching and asking questions. The founder welcomes big thinking and the exploration of all forms of wellness and health. I also love how the therapists at Mindbodyology help people discover what they need to be truly well, and I wanted to be part of that.

I practice meditation every day and love my regular Reiki sessions to live more in alignment with myself.

UK tour in August of 2014, the videos and pictures will live on forever!

Baking everything I shouldn’t be eating, usually watching “The Great British Baking Show” at the same time. Taking a full day to just “Netflix”, read and chill.

I love reading, writing books and screen plays, watercolor painting and drawing. I also knit and crochet when I want a mind break. I do a lot of photography and will do just about anything for beautiful photos I can add on my art wall.

lies, being inconsiderate of others, impatience, closed mindedness, those who don’t strive to continue their growth, and scary drivers.
