Cheers to keeping it interesting

  I have always been a curious person.  When I was five years old, sitting on the porch of our Colorado farmhouse, I listened to my brother read anatomy books from my mother’s nursing school days.  Even then, I was struck with wonder at the body’s ability to grow, heal itself, and fight disease.  This fascination has been a constant in my life and my career in massage therapy has only deepened this chord.

  I have always been a curious person.  When I was five years old, sitting on the porch of our Colorado farmhouse, I listened to my brother read anatomy books from my mother’s nursing school days.  Even then, I was struck with wonder at the body’s ability to grow, heal itself, and fight disease.  This fascination has been a constant in my life and my career in massage therapy has only deepened this chord.  

The path that lead me to massage work was a friend’s referral to my midwife when I had my first child in 1997.  The exposure to so many varied choices in care lead me to explore the arena of more holistic and preventative healing modalities.  I chose to begin schooling in 1999 and graduated from Irene’s Myomassology Institute in 2000. 

Over the years, body and energy work have been at the core of my professional life, while my studies continued.  I spent three years as an apprentice midwife and doula utilizing prenatal, labor, and infant massage.  These were some of the most rewarding years of my life in learning.  I was able to raise my two boys and put myself through college working with special needs kids, amateur and professional athletes as well as Detroit circus performers to keep their bodies in top condition and aiding in minimizing any injuries incurred with shiatsu, sports massage and lymphatic drainage.  I was lucky enough to shadow several physical therapists in their care of my clients which inspired more coursework in cranio-sacral therapy to treat body and brain injury.  In my time as a research assistant, I had the great fortune to meet and connect with the community at Henry Ford Retirement Village and aid many of the most lovely people I have ever met, in aging well with healing touch therapy.  I continue to learn and grow as a therapist in every facet I am able, as I am still insatiably curious. 

Outside my work life I am obsessed with the sky and continuously snapping shots of it.  I adore my boys, family, a few friends, and sweetheart.  I would like to one day have a sustainable farm where I can grow my own food and make my own line of grown and foraged remedies.  I attempt encaustic painting here and there and I ride a motorcycle whenever Michigan weather permits, and sometimes when it doesn’t.
