I grew-up in the Chicago area and completed my undergraduate work as a Middle Level educator at Illinois State University. I spent much of my twenties teaching, leading backpacking trips and working in community development.
I began my journey toward massage after a back injury that couldn't be resolved after seeing many specialists. I received my first massage and began practicing yoga. This is where my holistic healing journey began. Shortly after, I became a licensed massage therapist after attending Body Therapy Institute in North Carolina.
I believe that massage can be fundamental in our healing journey and our authentic connection to ourselves. Massage helps create ease in our bodies and relieves chronic pain which positively affects how we move through our world. I believe in the lasting change massage has in our bodies and spirits, and I love supporting clients where they are in their journey.
