Where did you go to school for massage?
Austin School of Massage.
How do you describe your massage/work to others?
Creative and intuitive, with a combination of Eastern and Western modalities. I’m often told I have very strong hands, and give the best foot and scalp massage.
What are some examples of Continuing Education you are interested in and why?
I’ve learned a number of modalities over the years, and at this point in my career I’m interested in honing my craft on those techniques, as opposed to adding new things to the mix.
How has receiving massage affected you personally?
I’ve become more in tune with my own body and spirit. Massage makes me more aware of my own health.
What do you do to stay healthy?
I enjoy playing tennis, hiking with my dog, and an occasional yoga class. And vegetables.

I like the challenge of keeping up with the standards that Myo sets for quality therapy!
