NC LMBT #16933
Georgia Massage School, GA 2017
Trained in Upledger Craniosacral, Medical Massage, TMJ, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, and Cupping
I was in and around the medical field in both the Army and the Navy and then again as I transitioned back to civilian life. I had my first experience with massage therapy during a severely stressful time due to the death of a loved one. Massage showed me the healing power of touch. In the years that followed, I set out on my own healing journey and became well acquainted with how emotions; especially stress and trauma impact our lives and our health in very specific ways. I began to build a toolbox for myself filled with tools that re-build peace, cultivate joy and release stress and trauma from the body, soul, and spirit. Massage and Craniosacral therapy have given me a vehicle to best utilize those tools and my passion for bringing wholeness and healing to those led my way.
I worked at Body Wellness for 2 years before the opportunity presented itself for me to become owner and I jumped at the chance to continue the legacy of providing targeted massage therapy to clients who need more than relaxation. I thrive on challenge, learning and growth and will continue to build a strong team equally committed to excellence and to a peaceful and joyful atmosphere where healing thrives.

It brings me so much fulfillment to see my clients progress and succeed.
