Oh, hi there!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read about my journey.
Allow me to draw back the curtains + shine a spotlight on myself. Actually, forget the stage …
Journey backstage with me.
It’s there that I knew I wanted to follow the path of supporting + healing others.
I started sharing healing modalities that helped me after years of countless injuries with my fellow dancers backstage before our performances, and witnessed the instant relief it brought them.
Not only did I find myself massaging, I also was assisting them with their hair and makeup. My two passions naturally unfolded in a beautiful harmony.
Following these loves, I completed my Cosmetology license in 2003 and by 2008 I acquired my Bachelor’s Degree in Sports Medicine and Modern Dance.
Are YOU ready to be a "chillzilla"?
For over a year, I traveled Southeast Asia in 2015 to dive deeper into the culture. I studied Yoga at the Ashtanga Institute in Mysore, India and became certified in Thai Massage in Chiang Mai, Thailand and energetic healing, known as Reiki in Rishikesh, India.
Diving deeper into those "chill vibes"
After traveling, we settled in San Diego, my fiancé's hometown (he's the one in the photo above!), and I completed my 1000HR Massage Therapy certification.
I traveled Europe and moved to Philadelphia to pursue my dance career. I taught all ages and ranges of dance and workout classes and shared alignment and strengthening techniques. I was introduced to Yoga in 2007, became certified in 2013, and incorporated the practice and philosophy into my classes and my life.
I vlogged before vlogging was a "thing"
In 2010, I co-produced a documentary series and traveled all over the US and Canada for 3-months documenting eco-villages, businesses, and individuals who dedicate their lives to living consciously.
I deepened my love for health and wellness.
After learning from these incredible people all over the country, I cultivated a deeper understanding of what "holistic health" truly means and devoted myself solely to this field. I helped two osteopathic doctors open and manage their healing practice in Philadelphia which consisted of doctors, chiropractors, massage therapists, and yoga practitioners.
I am fully immersed in Just Lago, and I can't go a day without a little humor, pug snuggles, and of course, singing and playing my ukulele. I love surrounding myself with inspiring individuals and frequent women entrepreneurial events all throughout San Diego.
I am committed to helping you enhance your health + happiness by invoking + connecting to the goddess within yourself.
