The University of Yourself originated in Boulder, Colorado in the year 2000. After an initial big move to California’s stunning Mendocino Coast in 2006, followed by an exploration of many glorious spots up and down the northern California coast, the U of You’s founder, Dr. Ron Masa and his significant other, Debbie Hart, settled among the redwoods in the beautiful coastal mountains near Santa Cruz, California, where the U of You is located today. Ron and Debbie co-manage the University of Yourself as a small cottage industry.

Like Debbie, he loves cats.
