What I enjoy most about bodywork: The drive to help people is as inherent in massage therapy as it is in firefighting. Body work brings me balance- a way I can help people in a calm, quiet, safe setting. I really enjoy that I can go beyond just mitigating a problem, and actually improve someone’s quality of life.
Biography: I grew up in Benson MN and joined the Air Force soon after high school. I was a meteorologist stationed in Tucson AZ, where I decided to pursue education and training in massage therapy. I separated from active duty in 2008 and joined the Air National Guard here in Duluth and attended UMD. At this time I made a career change from meteorology to airfield firefighting, and completed my AAS degrees for both. I worked as a massage therapist at UMD while I finished my BAS in Exercise Science, and also volunteered for their outdoor program, teaching outdoor skills and sports, and leading multi-day trips for students and community members. I separated from the military in 2015 and currently work as a firefighter for the City of Duluth. I spend much of my time traveling and doing almost every imaginable outdoor sport. My husband, children, and my dog join me for many of my adventures.
My massage style: I am a well rounded person who brings a variety of skills and experience to my massage practice. Being an athlete, I enjoy working with the athletic community as well as with prenatal, geriatric, injured and special needs clients. I am excited to meet and help new clients, and am eager to tailor each session to my clients’ specific needs.
