After close to a decade in the medical field, I made the organic transition into massage and graduated Wellness Massage Center & Institute, St. Albans, VT in 2010. After an accident as a teenager left me with a great deal of healing to do, I was thankfully introduced to massage. Having been helped to recover through massage therapy, I now practice with hopefulness that I can assist others in their personal health journeys.

My technique is simple: Do whatever will help the client to recover. During massage school I learned modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, Shiatsu, and PNF stretching. After school I have taken many continuing education courses, such as Thai massage, Craniosacral Therapy, and Anatomy Trains.  Bearing the goal to assist all my clients to improve their health in mind, I integrate all of the appropriate modalities in each massage - ensuring to reach our goals as quickly and effectively as possible.

In my free time my husband and I love going to the beach, running, sailing, throwing pottery, camping, hiking, wine tasting, brewing beer, making sushi, snowboarding, and traveling. Knot&Clutch is my accessories business, and am happy to offer select items for sale at my office! I am fluent in American Sign Language, and my husband and I are active volunteers in the deaf community.  We are excited for the new adventures which await us in San Luis Obispo!
