Eve Arecius was born in Marchand Dessalines, Haiti and moved to New York at the age of six. She retains close ties with her homeland through regular visits to her family in Port-au-Prince where they run a water business. From her frequent travel came the realisation that there was a lot more that she could do to support the people of Haiti.
Eve is both a mom and a medical massage therapist. She specialises in pre-natal, post-natal and sports massage. Helping and healing people is central to Eve’s life and underpins her motivation to support the work being undertaken by Konbit Mizik.
