I grew up in Houston, Texas and loved every minute of it. I worked hard through college, mostly in restaurants, but always wondered what life was like outside my big, beautiful state. Feeling restless, I sold everything I owned and moved to Costa Rica in 2002 where I lived on the Nicoya Peninsula for 2 years. After being involved in a serious motorcycle accident, I began physical therapy, weekly yoga classes and receiving regular massage. I discovered the benefits of massage were more than just feeling good.
