In addition to my diploma from the Soma Institute of Clinical Massage Therapy, I have a earned bachelor of arts degree in corporate wellness and health behavior from DePaul University and am hoping to one day obtain a professional medical degree so that I may fulfill my life's purpose as a healer. 


While completing my coursework for medical school acceptance, I'm utilizing my massage therapy training by working alongside healthcare professionals that incorporate massage as a complementary treatment. My studies in corporate wellness and health behavior have also equipped me with a keen understanding of the workplace environment, stress management, and the many seemingly insignificant yet significant boundaries that hinder people from improving their health on a daily basis.

Volunteer Massage Therapist

Provided clinical massage therapy (or rehabilitation massage therapy) treatment for patients diagnosed with site-specific conditions per their physician's orders. All treatments were administered with a precise goal or outcome in mind. In addition, massaged staff members in between sessions because they seemed to appreciate the gesture.

Employee Wellness Champion

As an advocate for health and wellness, I promoted methods of positive behavioral change to colleagues within the Legal and Market Regulation Division in hopes that it would improve the work environment culture. The minimum participation requirement for this position was exceeded as I created and implemented additional health initiatives on my own, that were customized specifically for employees of the Legal and Market Regulation Division. During routine collaboration with the Health and Wellness Director at CME Group Inc., I utilized my knowledge gained from massage therapy experience and studies at DePaul University. Through this partnership I had the unique opportunity to work on a corporate-wide wellness campaign to effectively improve the well-being of thousands of individuals. Because of my additional education, I frequently shared my understanding of human anatomy, nutrition, kinesiology, massage therapy, stress relief, etc. with colleagues by responding to ad hoc questions and introducing low impact approaches to a healthier lifestyle.

Licensed Massage Therapist - Self

Licensed in Illinois and Texas. Certified by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) and Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB).

Clinical massage therapy incorporates a variety of modalities which treat chronic patterns of muscular tension, improve athletic performance and relieve stress related conditions.
