I graduated from NSU in 1992 with a Bachelors in Social Work and worked as a case manager in the mental health field. Due to neck and back problems I started exploring massage therapy and eventually found a therapist that did Soft Tissue Pressure Release which proved to be the most therapeutic modality I had come across. In 1996 I entered Massage Therapy Institute, beginning my path of learning about natural healing. I became certified and licensed in 1997 and continued my education with a certification in Reflexology and Soft Tissue Pressure Release. In 2000 I passed the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, and continued expanding my knowledge of bodywork through training in myofascial work and energy work (Directional Healing and Reiki, level 1, 2 and 3) In 2011 I completed 200 hrs of Yoga teacher training followed by a year long training in Craniosacral work. In January 2019, I started with the Ankrum Institute.
