Background & Training

My journey into the massage therapy profession began with athletic triumphs and injuries. A strained hamstring nearly sidelined me from Tae Kwon Do competition until I pursued massage therapy to help heal the injury. A few years later, I pursued a massage therapy career at Carlson College of Massage Therapy. Upon graduating from Carlson College in 2003, I became nationally certified in massage therapy and a member of the American Massage Therapy Association.


I have trained with The Upledger Institute in CranioSacral therapy and with James Waslaski in orthopedic massage. Orthopedic and Thai Massage have transformed my practice, allowing me to better balance my clients’ bodies.  I am a firm believer that we can improve our own health through exercise, proper nutrition and sharing our lives with people who bring joy and laughter into our world.

Areas of Specialty

My specialties include:
•    CranioSacral therapy
•    Migraine Miracle Treatment
•    Orthopedic massage
•    Reiki
•    Sports/Deep Tissue massage
•    Thai massage

I have worked in spas, athletic clubs, corporate and chiropractic offices, as well as at athletic events, providing massage therapy to relieve the specific concerns of each client. Additionally, I have improved the lives of individuals with frozen shoulder, frozen hip, carpel tunnel syndrome, cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s and other conditions and injuries.

About Me

I share my life with my husband Brian and our son Aiden. Along with our beloved dog, Elsa, they bring balance and laughter to my life. In my free time enjoy running and gardening, volunteering in the school district and playing flyball with Elsa. I am blessed and thankful to have so many wonderful friends, family members and clients who bring so much to my life – it is a gift to have you share your experiences with me and allow me the opportunity to help you realize your dreams and potential through healthy living and massage therapy.
