Say hello to your health.

Let’s face it. Who doesn’t want to feel great. But who wants to wait to feel great? I want you to feel your very best, look your very best + be your very best—like now!

That’s why I created B Bar™—a regular Pop Up inside select Bay area Pharmaca locations where I offer unique intramuscular injections that blend vitamins, antioxidants, amino acids, minerals + my fave: homeopathic medications.

My proprietary formulas are like no other. I founded the original Shot Bar™ in 2011, winning awards + being voted Best Integrative Wellness 2016 + 2017 by Ranch + Coast magazine. After six years in San Diego, I’ve returned to my home by the Bay. I’m back! Your partner in health.

I look forward to seeing you soon!
