I am a reikimaster (Reiki 1,2,& 3 where I teach) where I learned from the nuns at French hospital in SLO, CA I worked as a phlebotomist for 9 years. I have been a phlebotomist for 15 years and have also worked for Cottage Hospital Pacific Diagnostics Labs for a couple. I was in nursing school in between until my third semester my mom had gotten breast to brain then terminal cancer, so I left to focus on family. I have since gone into a deep dive of yoga and yoga therapy, gotten certified Yoga Alliance 200hrs then 300hrs, or 500 hr advance yoga certification along with Ayurveda wellness counseling. I teach gentle yoga for the past 5 years and surf lessons for 23 years, 14 of which I taught with my surfing golden retriever, Saint. You can google hims \\\"Surfing Dog Saint\\\" and see a good youtube video, plus he was in LA Times, front page of SLO Tribune, In Touch Magazine and many more. I also train service dogs at a local kennel as a hobby. My fulltime job is microbiologist QA Lab tech, but recently got promoted to Quality Food Safety supervisor interim manager. I really am passionately drawn into this from prenatal yoga certification teaching my younger sister since she\\\'s due tomorrow! I\\\'m her doula technically. She lives in Sactown but I\\\'m 5 hours away and will be up seeing her in two weeks, when I ordain my little brother\\\'s wedding. I\\\'ll be her birth and postpartum doula via Facetime and phone calls. Trying not to overwhelm her with too much information, but support her as her birth partner husband is the only person allowed in her hospital, as most hospitals do not more than one other person due to covid. I hope to someday support and grow a healthy community of children everywhere as a legacy.
