EL’s full name is Elia but was given the nickname EL in college and it stuck with her ever since. She received her B.S. in Cellular & Molecular Biology from Chaminade University in Honolulu, Hawaii (CUH) where she attended for four years on a softball scholarship. Softball was a huge part of her life, playing competitively from the age of 8 til she was 22 years old. Although she no longer plays softball, she remains active by working out at The BluePrint LA regularly and practicing yoga almost every single day. Upon graduating from CUH she began working at a holistic health and wellness center in Honolulu under a renowned Naturopathic Doctor. There she gained plenty of knowledge and experience helping people heal as well as running a successful business.
EL’s favorite modality at Beach Cities Cryo is the infrared sauna because who doesn’t love to sweat while doing absolutely nothing?! She loves working at Beach Cities Cryo because to her it is a sanctuary for all types of people. Whether someone is dealing with an autoimmune disease or an athletic injury, they are coming for the same reason, to escape the harmful ways of Western medicine and treat their body with holistic therapies in order to live a vibrant, healthy life. She occasionally mentions how she wishes she had access to all the therapies at BCC during her collegiate softball career.
Fun Facts: EL has been vegan for over 3 years, is also a huge Kpop fan and proud BTS A.R.M.Y., and her favorite type of cuisine is Japanese food.
