Growing up I was an avid basketball player, I could always be found shooting hoops, lifting in the gym or running on the track. My identity revolved around being an athlete. In high school I suffered devastating injuries to both of my knees; 3 surgeries and 2 years of rehab later and I was struggling both physically and mentally. At the time these injuries felt like a death of my former self, now I realize it was the catalyst to discovering my passion for healing the body.
I worked as a Personal Fitness Trainer for 6 years before deciding to go back to school to study Massage Therapy. I immediately fell in love with massage. The body is so intriguing and I am fascinated by client’s responses to various treatments and modalities.
I am a ferocious learner with a desire to continue to understand the latest research in soft tissue treatments, pain science, and orthopedic assessments. For me massage is the perfect mix of art and science, I offer both relaxation and therapeutic treatments and would love to share my passion with you.
