Since 2002, I have has enjoyed customizing massage sessions to fit each of my client’s individual needs. I utilize my extensive background in multiple modalities of massage and body movement to help people de-stress, rejuvenate, and resolve acute or chronic soft-tissue injuries.

Prior to massage school, I trained at an elite level in athletics, Pilates and dance and I continue my development in these areas today. In 2002, I decided to further my pursuit of body excellence by completing massage school in at Chicago School of Massage Therapy.
Shortly after graduation, I began private practice and quickly became the lead massage therapy instructor at my alma mater, The Chicago School of Massage Therapy Cortiva Institute. There I redesigned the massage program with senior staff and furthered my own private practice by working under renowned physical therapist Linda Tremain and at Good Sheppard Hospital’s Health and Fitness division. During this time, I learned countless skills and techniques in the areas of rehabilitation and therapeutic massage.
In 2006, I moved to New Orleans. I worked as the lead massage therapist at Bella Donna Day Spa and Lander’s physical therapy. I also taught at the Blue Cliff College in Metairie. In 2008, I joined the staff at Crane Rehab, a physical therapy group with a focus on multiple disciplinary healing. I also broadened my scope of education with training in Pilates and TRX.
I consider myself a lifelong learn of body mechanics and movement and have became certified in countless body modalities so that I can assist my clients in maximum recovery and healing.
