My Story

As a Fascia Stretch Therapy Specialist (FST) and a Massage Therapist, I enjoy being able to bridge the gap between western medicine and the “alternatives,” while providing a safe and nurturing atmosphere in which to heal.  FST has brought my skills to a new level.


Prior to getting into massage, I did Financial Analysis, Desktop Computer Support and taught Martial Arts for a couple of years.  I had a draw toward the healing arts and knew the first time I laid hands on someone in massage school this was the right place for me to be.  Since then, I have achieved my Bachelors in Nursing and worked as an operating room nurse in a few different medical facilities for 6 years.  I am drawn back to my roots:  Massage.

Since the beginning of my massage career, I was drawn to pain relief and pain management as well as muscle injury repair.  We do not have to walk around in pain all the time, massage and stretching can make a tremendous difference in your quality of life.  After martial arts, I began cycling and running.  I have done century cycling rides; I have run 7 marathons-including Boston in 2011, numerous half marathons, 10k's and 5k's.  I did a half Ironman in 2012.  Massage therapy and fascia stretching is so beneficial for athletes.  I have also been a personal trainer in the past. 

Outside of work, we have two dogs, a shitzu named Bella and a bulldog named Shelby.  I am still running and cycling when I can.  I love to do HIIT group training classes, and have recently taken up golfing.


As with any career, I will continue to learn new techniques and modalities.
