Her career path includes sales and marketing positions in the magical Napa Valley and being an account executive in the wild and creative world of advertising. Currently she is a certified massage therapist, licensed in San Francisco, working at the SportsClub/LA in downtown San Francisco. She also runs a successful private massage practice and works with two of Cirque du Soleil's traveling shows as the massage therapist for the performers.
Alissa can often be found doing yoga, meditation, enjoying vegan/vegetarian/raw food, snowboarding or atop a sunny hillside playing the didgeridoo or djembe. She loves to check out the many live music venues this great city has to offer, including the best underground dance parties known to man. To keep it all balanced, Alissa enjoys participating in Mayan and Native American ceremony. This year she will add to her healing offerings by including energy-clearing work and becoming a yoga instructor.
