Notable Experiences

Bodywork
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.
