When I was 14 I discovered competitive cycling. Ever since then I have fueled my passion to understand and assist the human body and person accomplish more.
My family is very much involved in the health science: my mom was a nurse, my dad a biochemist, and two of my sisters have gone on to become top nurses.
I college I pursued cycling, and went to Belgium for 2 months to test my cycling ability there. At the time, I didn’t think it went very well, so, upon returning to the US, I went back to college and finished up my degree in Exercise Science / Physiology. (In the last few years working with many professional cyclists in the area, I discovered I did much better in Belgium than I had originally thought)
I decided to go to the Boulder College of Massage Therapy as an expected stepping stone to a Doctorate in Physical Therapy.
The Boulder College of Massage Therapy was far more intensive and higher caliber than I ever expected. It was an amazing education. With my years and passion of studying physiology I had a different perspective of the education, and realizing the outstanding quality of teaching and understanding, I stayed on past the 1000 hour program to earn both the AOS degree and the Advanced Certificate in Sports and Orthopedic Massage. This totaled more than 1800 hours, even after testing out of the core physiology classes.
In the last 6 years I have had the chance to do almost every type of bodywork: from top, international athletes, to treating and removing chronic, “unexplainable” pain, to a bit of trauma work, to some energy work, and of course, deep powerful relaxation.
Whatever is your choice and need for the day and time of each session, I do my best to accomplish it. It is very rare that I don't succeed.
