I grew up in sunny Southern California, but in 2021, my partner and I decided to finally make the move to Portland we had dreamed about years prior. From an early age I realized how profound the comfort and companionship animals’ presence bring into my life. I began to view animals as mirrors, teaching us how we can be more compassionate, patient, as well as understand our own capacity to love. I originally started out as a client at NWNVH, aligning towards their integrative approach to medicine and have recently happily joined the team. In my spare time I enjoy: playing taiko (Japanese drums), trying local coffee shops, dancing, as well as spending time with my cats- Binx and Arya.
