Give yourself permission to enjoy your life!

When I was an adolescent and teen, my Mom suffered from terrible migraines.  She would beg me to rub her head and I always managed to relieve her symptoms.  She encouraged me to go to school to become a massage therapist, which is exactly what I did!  I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist since May 2006 and am a graduate of Arizona School of Massage Therapy.

With a desire to further my education and to help people even more, I graduated from Pima Medical Institute in December 2012 as a Physical Therapist Assistant.  I worked in many settings, including hospital, outpatient, acute rehab, and skilled nursing.  While I enjoyed making a more lasting difference in the lives of my patients, I found myself dissatisfied due to constant insurance cuts, odious paperwork, and insurance companies dictating how much time I was allowed to spend with patients.  I felt stuck.

Then, in 2018, I suffered an injury that caused me to temporarily pause my life while I rehabbed.  I went from being a very active therapist and someone who worked out 6 days per week to a person who couldn't even manage to grocery shop alone due to the debilitating pain.  A Physical Therapist I worked with recommended incorporating John F. Barnes myofascial release as part of my healing journey.  I had never heard of this modality before but I was intrigued.  After a few sessions, the pain dissipated and my function was restored, even better than I had dared to hope!  Not only was the pain from the injury gone, but the nagging hip pain that had been plaguing me for about three years vanished as well!

With the results I enjoyed, I knew myofascial release was the path I wanted to take in my career.  I signed up for classes in September 2019 that were to take place in Sedona in March 2020.  Unfortunately, Covid-19 upended the world, so I took the first classes I could, which were in Nashville in November 2020.  Attending classes affirmed that I was in the right place, and on the right path! I am now very eager to assist others on their own healing journey.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking, photography, reading, traveling, weight lifting, ancestral living, thrifting, cat snuggling, and Nerf gun fights with my husband.
