Prior to becoming a massage therapist I worked in customer service at a company that manufactured medical equipment and custom wheelchairs. One day I looked around at my coworkers, all of them hunched over on the phone and on the computer helping customers. I thought it would be a good idea to contact the local massage school to get students in to help decrease stress in the office. I did look into the school but was unable to get a student in the office. I decided to put in my two weeks and go to school myself.
I graduated from Boulder College of Massage Therapy in 2004. After school I worked at a local hospital and was the lead massage therapist working with patients in ICU, Med/Surg, Pre Op, and New Life. In addition to that I worked in the Physical Therapy department where I would work with people that had chronic pain, joint replacements and anyone who needed general relaxation.
My husband and I decided to pursue our dreams and make the move to Washington in 2012. Since I have been in Washington I have worked on many people in need of pain reduction, general relaxation or help in reducing anxiety and depression.
What I love about massage is helping people feel good, helping people to take time to be conscious of the body as a whole and helping people feel a little less anxious in this fast paced world. My work has brought many different people and bodies on my table. I have experience in neuromuscular/injury treatment, prenatal/postpartum, intraoral and relaxation where I provide massage at my private practice in Gig Harbor. hide
