About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

I chose to pursue a second career in massage therapy because of my interest in alternative health practices. I was practicing Reiki (a hands-on energy healing technique) and had become a Reiki Master. I wanted to expand my knowledge to include anatomy, physiology and kinesiology along with massage techniques. I am so proud to be a massage therapist and have loved every aspect of the profession.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I am interested in helping my patients to achieve stress relief and relaxation as well as improvement in their physical condition. I am accomplished in many massage modalities and use them wisely to achieve the best results. I demonstrate stretching exercises for you to do at home that may help you to gain flexibility and help with chronic problems. I'm a good listener who is enthusiastic about my job.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I am a musician, singer and choir director. I'm a dog and cat lover with two dogs and three cats. I enjoy music, theater, movies and literature.
