Tell us more about your company! What do you do and what pushed you to start?

I was born with disabilities so was a disability specialist for many years, fallen into it, falling back into it. Could not find employment, went to school to become a massage therapist and studied numerous modalities since.

What is your definition of success? How do you know when you’ve reached it?

When you've pushed yourself to a place where you finally feel you're valued and seen.

Tell us about your most transformational moment as an entrepreneur?

This year -- watching the recognition grow, having PR, having loyalty of clientele, the whole essence of not giving up on yourself and watching others not give up on you either

What was one of your biggest challenges in business?

The fluxation of new clients vs loyal clients and continuation of getting new client flow and money flow to be continuous

How do you handle the harder days? The struggles? Those moments when you feel like giving up?

I never give up- having financial flexibility to get and hire support, being able to find supports in many different ways

How has being a Boston Business Women Inner Circle member positively influenced your life + business?

You feel accepted and no idea how to become an influencer, and then you are supported by all different walks of life and all different business women, you are the inspiration and they embrace you - connected to people you would have never been able to have access to, best way to network.

Tell us about your most proud moment in your career.

Reopening practice after COVID, getting keys to your own office not knowing what could happen and just ``doing it``

Who is the woman behind your business? What does she like? How does she spend her free time? What does she value?

My boyfriend and I love relaxing whether in separate rooms, together, on a road trip, we're on an adventure- smiling. 16 months in and I have my companion, best friend, etc. We go on rides and have adventures giving each other space but enjoying each others company. If I could make more time for something I want, it would be modern dance, dancing freely. Having a companion has been the best life change - having this relationship of balance and support for each other has been an incredible joy.

What makes you stand out from others in your field? What do you do differently?

Very verbal about my disability, feel its important, a pride of mine to show that despite all measures gone through in life, that you can still go on and succeed. In terms of massage work, even with me having the disability I needed to find unique modalities that would provide me opportunity for being different in the field and that made it easier for me to have less pain and less discomfort, more space for the joy of working and this passion of mine

Where can we keep up with you? What social media platforms do you use the most?

Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, YouTube, LinkedIn, Threads
