After 25 years working as a medical transcriptionist, I returned to school to study massage therapy. I had seen firsthand the benefits of massage in the reports I was typing. With an extensive background in anatomy and physiology as well as an understanding of disease pathology, I quickly developed a passion for the profession. I approach massage from a medical prospective and enjoy the challenge of choosing the best modalities to help people feel better. I also observed the benefits of massage for my aging golden retrievers and an off-the-racetrack thoroughbred I had the pleasure of sharing my life with and decided to study animal massage as well.
I feel I've had some of the best teachers in the world ~ Ms. Rose Gorman, Dr. Reid McClellan, my thoroughbred Gumboots, & my goldens! I try to incorporate the things I have learned from each of them to provide my clients ~ humans & animals ~ with the best possible massage experience.
