Hi, my name is Wendy. I am a licensed massage therapist, nutritionist, certified yoga instructor, maternity/parenting guide, intuitive energy practitioner, and life coach. In short, I'm a "Life Doula". A "doula" is a person who supports another during a challenging time or transition (usually at birth or death) but what about everything in between? What about the messy middle? My mission as a Life Doula is to support you with your uniquely imperfect life and to help you become the Healthy Human Being you were always meant to be.
I've been supporting my clients through the "human experiences" of life for over 20 years and I LOVE what I do! I believe in creating a uniquely intuitive session every time I work with someone. I draw from my years of experience and my well equipped toolbox to help clients understand their body, heart and mind in a more comprehensive and connected way. I feel fortunate to have found a profession that is also my source of joy and inspiration - my GloJo. It is my honor and privilege to help my clients find their glow and inspiration too - their GloJo! Let's get started!

How I Got Started
My journey of becoming a Massage Therapist started out in the health and fitness industry in the mid '90s. After receiving my Bachelors Degree in Nutrition from the University of Cincinnati, I knew I didn't want to work in a hospital, so I took a job as a Nutritionist at a resort spa in Phoenix AZ. After a few years of learning the spa industry, I accepted a dream job as a Spa Director in San Diego. I later moved to Miami to pursue high end residential spa management opportunities. Because I thought it would enhance my professional career as a Spa Director to understand the demands of my staff, I enrolled in massage therapy school. However, life had other plans. One month into school I knew the practice of massage therapy was my true calling. I quit my spa management job and I've been a Massage Therapist ever since. It was hands down (pun intended) the best professional decision I ever made.
