After graduating from massage academy in 2015 I started working in downtown Seattle. I’ve worked in healthcare as a certified Nurses Aid (CNA) and as a nursing staff assistant in a hospital setting alongside my mother, one of the hospital’s nursing supervisors. This early work helped focus my interests on healing.
I’ve specialized in working on the healthcare end of massage therapy as I love seeing people recover and improve through the partnership of chiropractic and massage therapies. My education has been with this in mind. I practice deep tissue massage with my own combination of Trigger Point, Cross Fiber Friction, Muscle Energy Technique, Myofascial Release, and some Aromatherapy. I also have training in treating adhesive capsulitis, scars, impingements, and light pregnancy massage. I can help with sinus pressure, TMJ, and some headaches as well.
I was raised on a small farm where my folks and I raised both dairy and meat goats as well as some other types of livestock. They were also flipping houses before it was a term and I learned some renovation skills along the way. I tried real estate but it wasn’t for me. I enjoy travel and am in the process of renovating a 40′ power yacht. Artwork is a passion of mine ;sketching, ceramics, painting, glass work, etc. I enjoy nature hikes. I’ve been up Multnoma Falls a few times before the big fire. I also enjoy swimming, cycling, staying in shape and eating healthy.
