How long have you been a licensed massage therapist?
Started school in 2008, became licensed in 2009.

At least 1500 hours. Not including yoga teacher training, herbalist studies or nursing courses.
Why did you choose massage therapy as your career?
My friends told me that I should go to massage school because I was so good at giving shoulder rubs. I listened and never looked back! I’m grateful to be able to spend my life helping others find wellness.
Where did you go to school for massage?
Texas Healing Arts Institute.
How do you describe your massage style to others?
It is integrative and holistic. I take the many styles and techniques I have learned over the years and blend them based on each client. I can be gentle and flowing, or deep and straight forward. I strive to achieve long lasting releases within the myofascial system without stressing the nervous system. Clients also always say I have a very calming presence.
How has receiving massage affected you personally?
It has given me a way to help my body withstand whatever life throws at me. It was the gateway drug on my wellness journey. From helping me recover from a major car accident, surviving cancer treatment and multiple surgeries, and just getting through day-to-day life sometimes. Massage has been a key ingredient to my health and wellbeing over the years.
What are some examples of Continuing Education you are interested in and why?
I’m interested in everything! I am a forever student. To narrow it down to a couple… I would love to train in Active Isolated Stretching to continue to merge movement and strengthening techniques into my practice. CranioSacral Therapy is another technique I’ve been interested in, to continue to blend more subtle, yet profound, body work into my session.

Yoga, Dance, Acupuncture, Herbs, Healthy Food choices, Time in Nature, Regular Massage.
