She began her nursing career in Sacramento, CA taking care of patients on a trauma medical-surgical floor, moved to the ICU, and eventually transitioned to pursuing her Masters’s in Nurse Anesthesia at Westminster College. As a nurse anesthetist, she enjoys the complexity of the operating room and the comprehensive care required during the surgery process.

However, over the last year, she has passionately blended her professional and personal life. Adora believes in every person’s innate ability to heal themselves. She has completed a 500-hour yoga teaching certificate and a 10-day silent retreat called Vipassana. She hosts weekend mindfulness retreats and teaches dance movement therapy. Adora uses states of non-ordinary consciousness, such as breathwork, meditation, and sound healing to promote connection and deep healing. When she received the opportunity to manage Mindful Infusions, Adora never felt more sure about something. She was motivated and invigorated to hold space for people on their healing journey.

Adora has completed several modules of Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy training at Polaris Insight Center. She attends workshops regularly on topics such as trauma, somatics, and healing modalities. She loves climbing and snowboarding, as well as her tiny dog, Shiva. She is the manager and head CRNA at Mindful Infusions.
