After high school, I went to UW Whitewater thinking I was going to go into the Special Education field. I grew up with a special needs brother so to me this was a natural choice. However, after receiving my first massage at the age of 19, I knew that this is the path I wanted to take instead. I signed up for school at Lakeside School of Massage Therapy in Madison, WI and graduated in 2002.
At the time, I had no idea the impact bodywork could actually have on peoples lives. Now, 13 years later, I am still in awe of how much I can help people and how much I am still learning and growing as a therapist. I have taken specialized classes in Pre-Perinatal Massage, Reiki I-II, LaStone Therapy, Rainbath Therapy, Soft Tissue Treatment Techniques for Low Back, Hips, Legs and Feet, Reflexology and classes in Crystal Therapy. In 2006, I went back to school for Aesthetics (Skin Care and Hair Removal).
As my interest in total body health continued to grow, I decided to further my education in Holistic Health Coaching through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. I became a Certified Health Coach in Sept of 2013 and will continue to expand on this experience! In April of 2016, I will begin school working towards a degree in Physical Therapy Assistant. I am a lifelong student and will continue to offer new services as I grow in my passions!
My intention for my practice is to provide a non-judgmental, tranquil space to facilitate healing based on your unique and individual needs. My hope is that you leave feeling more grounded and balanced in mind, body and spirit. Thank you for taking time to get to know a little bit about me, I look forward to meeting and working with you!
