Born across the state line in Missouri, I moved to Pittsburg in 1983. I spent several years working at Miller's Professional Imaging before deciding in 1993 to devote my life to helping people feel better.
My massage training at White River School of Massage Therapy included anatomy & physiology and several different modes of massage. These included Swedish style, acupressure, Reiki and Craniosacral therapies. After graduating, I added prenatal and facial massage to my skills.
Learning is my first love; I love to research new ways of dealing with pain and tension. An important aspect of my practice is being able to offer my clients suggestions to use between massage visits to help reduce tension and stress.
I have held licenses in both the state of AR (1993-2010) and the state of MO (2010 to present). (Kansas is currently working on a state license law.) I've been certified by the National Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork since 1993.
