After acquiring an Associate’s Arts Degree from Columbia College, I decided to pursue a career in massage after receiving physical therapy for a personal injury. The therapy made such a profound improvement in my recovery that I was compelled to pursue a career as a massage therapist. Receiving my certification from the College of Lake County has allowed me to support people in their desire to become free of debilitating pain though a program of massage and easy-to-do exercises that only take 5 minutes a day. I believe physical and mental health is essential for living a happier life, so exercising, meditating, and practicing yoga is important for overall health. I strive to bring positive energy, happiness, and overall well-being in an understanding and nonjudgmental way. My goal is to make every experience and enjoyable one.
