I graduated from the University of Delaware in 2002 with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. After college, I joined the Peace Corps and served in a remote island country called the Republic of Kiribati. The experience profoundly changed me. It was there I discovered that the world was not designed to be in service to me but rather I should be in service to the world.
This awakening led me to go to massage school at the Ashland Institute of Massage in Southern Oregon and begin my journey as a seeker, healer and teacher. I started as an assistant instructor and tutor of Anatomy, Physiology and Kinesiology in 2005 and have taught in various massage schools ever since. I began my private massage practice in 2007.
Throughout the years, I have refined my craft, mentoring and teaching lay people as well as other licensed massage therapists. In addition to private practice, I am a personal and professional development coach, published author and mama to a sweet little boy named Julian and another on the way. I love everything outdoors, meditation, dancing and swimming.
