LMT, CPMT, Massage Therapist

I’ve been practicing massage for 25 years. I’ve worked on many athletes including Amy Okonkwo, Matt Belisle, Leonard Scott, Jayson Nix, the choreographer to Cher and Professional Bull Rider Chase Wimer.


I received my license to practice massage therapy in 1997, graduating with Honors. While I was doing my internship, I worked under a Doctor’s license, In 2017, I received my Certification in Pediatric Massage Therapy.


I was a professional dancer, classically trained, for many years. While training and performing in NYC, I received my first massage. It was then that I realized I wanted to pursue massage therapy as a profession, because I witnessed, firsthand, the incredible benefits of massage. It kept my body healthy and minimized any strains the rigorous dance profession had on my body.

Turning Point

A few months after performing at the 1996 Olympiad Arts Festival in Atlanta, GA, during a rehearsal, I fell from a lift, causing me to take a year off from dance. That’s when I went to massage school. In the Summer of 2017, I flew my family and myself to California to receive a Certification in Pediatric Massage, and in October, I was offered a job at Cook Children’s Medical Center.

Motivation & Passion

It has always been my passion to help others of all ages. My youngest patient I have massages was 3 weeks old, and my oldest client was 90 years old. It brings me joy knowing I can help someone with pain relief.
