I have been in love with medicine and the science of healing since I was a young girl. After graduating from McQueen High School, in Reno, NV I started college with the intent to enter into the medical field, but not quite sure in what department. Having always been intrigued by the human body and its amazing ability to heal itself I knew I wanted a career with a balance of western medicine and eastern paradigm.
I received my advanced associates in science from Truckee Meadows Community College and went on to continue my education in Massage Therapy. I moved to Denver to attend the Massage Therapy Program through the Denver School of Massage Therapy. After graduating from UCMT Denver I attended the UCMT Masters Program in Salt Lake City, UT.
Once my education was complete I couldn’t wait to come back home to Reno and start my own practice. Being certified in numerous modalities ranging from structural/injury baselines to more specified modalities such as pregnancy and infant/child massage provides me the opportunity to work on a vast spectrum of clientele. I am passionate about my work and its profound effect on the body, immediate and life long.
