Why I chose the Industry: I developed a passion for well-being through bodywork after Reiki was instrumental to my own recovery from Bell’s Palsy in 2000. From there, I expanded into other modalities and finally massage in 2010.

Why I love to teach: Teaching gives me the opportunity to pass on the knowledge and skills that I have learned to others. Passing on the gift of stress-reduction and healing is very rewarding!

When not teaching, you can find me: Hanging out in the Third Ward, enjoying good meals and fun travel.
