What is your fondest memory of living in Sonoma County?
There are so many! Driving River Road every week on the way to the ocean - looking out at the fields and hills and their many changes - the sky - then the river. Finally arriving where the Russian River meets the ocean - stopping to look over the mouth of the river and Goat Rock. So different from the south side of Chicago where I grew up.
Describe what you experience as the greatest treasure of Sonoma County.
Basically the land. We have everything here. The hills, farms, trees, Armstrong Woods, and many opportunities for healthy recreation.
What for you defines 'quality of life'?
For me, it is simple living. Having friends, a comfortable place to live in the country with space to grow food. Meaningful employment. A vehicle that is in good condition. Enough money to pay my bills every month. Dry firewood during the winter.
What gets you really excited about your business?
Working with my clients and seeing their changes. Years ago I realized that I'm here to assist the human condition in what ways I can. My role model is St. Francis. I've experience in several healing modalities in addition to massage: art therapy and regression work, all people oriented. And I am quite intuitive.
Thinking about your business, what keeps you up at night?
Ha! This is a good question. Usually it doesn't unless I have a late massage, and then I get to bed about midnight. Other then that, regarding business, it is, at times, the lack of clients.
