I'm a massage therapist that enjoys helping people and have been practicing massage therapy for fourteen years now. I graduated from the Ancient Arts School of Massage in Richland WA. I enjoy working for Chan Chiropractic and Massage and really enjoy helping people get out of pain and improving their well being.
I was born and raised locally in the Tri-Cities. After high school, I attended Cortiva Institute’s School of Massage Therapy in Seattle and received my License in 2010. I have also received certification in intraoral massage and as well as cupping. I love working for Chan Chiropractic and Massage, and it has been very rewarding for me as a practitioner to see the positive benefits that bodywork can accomplish. I love animals, and we are welcoming our 3rd child into the world in March 2023!
I started working with Chan Chiropractic and Massage in 2022. I have felt very welcomed and supported ever since. Born and raised in Sunnyside, becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist was not even on my radar. My high school self would have laughed at that idea. But I knew healthcare was more my interest, so I became a Nursing Assistant in my junior year of high school. Once I graduated from Sunnyside High School, I wanted to take a gap year, but my loving Mexican Aunt scolded me for that idea. I didn’t really see myself going to a four-year College or University (I didn’t want to be in debt). So, massage school it was, and I graduated from Central Washington School of Massage Therapy. I previously worked in Sunnyside and decided to move to the Tri-Cities area to get out of a small town.
I enjoy Massage Therapy because it’s a big umbrella of opportunities I can start with. The spa setting wasn’t really my interest so I moved into the medical aspect of it. Something about helping relieve pain and stress makes me feel accomplished.
My hobbies are sleeping (hence why I’m always tired), traveling, camping, and trying new restaurants (I’m a food enthusiast). I do have a chocolate addiction, but I keep it under control. I’m a big homebody, so you’ll find me with family and friends or at home most of the time.
