Founder of the Original Shot Bar™
I created a pop-up vitamin shot bar over 8 years ago to offer quick, convenient solutions to promote health in a fast-paced world that exposes us to daily stress + a multitude of toxins. The blends I’ve formulated contain natural medicines—vitamins, antioxidants, amino acids, minerals, homeopathics—for effective + virtually immediate results. Over the years, thousands of clients from across the country have enjoyed the many benefits of my unique formulas.
I founded the original Shot Bar™ in San Diego (2011), winning awards + being voted Best Integrative Wellness 2016, 2017 + 2018 by Ranch + Coast magazine. In February 2018, I returned to my home by the Bay + rebranded my Bar business offering pop-up locations across the Bay Area for the very best in nutrient injection therapy.
