"Coming from a high stress job, I wanted to find a way to help others personally. After having a rotator cuff injury healed through massage, I decided to follow a career that can help others while being able to learn more about my body. My passion for high intensity sports, adventures, and understanding of the workplace, have made me versatile in my knowledge and therapeutic techniques. I pursue massage so that my clients may live their lives to the fullest and follow their passions."

"I had a client who came in describing back pain she has had for a long time, that after a number of massage sessions she has not been able to fix. I suggested we work on the muscles: Iliacus and Psoas, which can be a huge contributor to back pain. These are accessed from the abdomen and easily missed. After a fantastic session, her back pain had all but disappeared."
What makes your massages unique?
"My massage is slow, purposeful, and relaxing. By listening to my clients, I work intentionally on their problem areas to address their body’s needs. My depth and pressure is adjusted to suit my clients, and I like to end with a therapeutic touch to make sure you leave feeling relaxed."

What keeps you passionate about massage therapy?
"My drive for massage to make a difference in people’s lives. I love how I can help people completely relax and pursue their passions in life. One of the best feelings is after a massage when a client tells me they immediately feel better, or have a better range of motion in a joint."
