About Me

I am a native of Hickory, North Carolina.  I attended Appalachian State University and Lenoir-Rhyne College and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration.  I completed Massage Therapist training at Natural Touch School of Massage Therapy in Hickory, NC.

I have 12 years of healthcare experience in skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities working as a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator with physical therapists, nursing facility staff and physicians to assist patients in recovering from injuries and illnesses.

As a Licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist, I specialize in relieving pain, improving range of motion, reducing stress and facilitating the healing process for my clients.  I use Swedish Massage, Neuromuscular Therapy, Deep Tissue Massage, Thai Foot Reflexology, Hot Stone Massage, Sports Massage, Lymphatic Massage, and Negative Pressure Cupping to achieve positive outcomes.  I also have six years of experience working with Crossfit athletes.  I continue to further my skills through ongoing education and training.  My goal is to provide pain relief, relaxation, healing, and overall enhanced well-being to clients.
