Our Therapists & Staff


 

Choosing A Therapist


Eagles Nest Massage Therapy has both female and male therapists. All therapists have their own personal areas of training and expertise. We encourage you to try a number of therapists to find the one that you feel most relaxed with and provides you the style you enjoy. Some clients choose to make their appointments with the same therapist for all of their visits, while others choose to make appointments with a variety of therapists. We encourage you to do that which fits you personally. Please refer to the therapists menu below for more information on what styles each individual therapist offers.

Quote: “Guess why I smile a lot?... Because it’s worth it.” –Marcel the Shell
 
Therapy Provided: General Relaxation, Deep Tissue/Needs Specific, Pregnancy

What I enjoy most about body work: Body work gives me the chance to help clients get to a quiet and centered place. In a world where we are constantly on the go, massage is an opportunity to slow down and refocus. As a massage therapist, I consider it an honor and a privilege to help people achieve a sense of inner peace.

Training: 780 Hours at Saint Paul Community College, 150 Hours Traditional Thai Massage at Baan Hom Samunphrai, Thailand.

Biography: I grew up in St. Paul, however I was always drawn to the North Shore. Between frequent visits to Duluth to see family and numerous camping trips in the Boundary Waters I developed a love for the lake and the woods. After graduating high school I moved to Grand Marais for a while and made my way to Lutsen and Ely working all sort of seasonal jobs. My early twenties were filled with lots of interesting jobs/adventures- cabin building, dog mushing, exterior painting, etc. In 2015 I went to Saint Paul College for massage therapy and that was when I found what I was truly passionate about. After graduation I worked independently as a massage therapist and as a server in a busy restaurant in Minneapolis. Massage therapy eventually brought me to Thailand the spring of 2018 where I learned traditional Thai massage which I have integrated into my practice here. I have found a supportive community here at Eagles Nest and couldn’t be happier. I’m looking forward to growing as a therapist and as a member of this beautiful community.

My massage style: I bring a strong and nurturing sense to the massage table. I like to instill comfort and ease in my clients so that they are able to relax and turn their focus inward.

Training: Over 600 hours at Lake Superior College, Reiki Level 1 Practitioner

 

What I enjoy most about bodywork: I love helping my clients relieve pain and muscle tightness through massage, but I also enjoy teaching them about their muscles and posture to help them release the source of their discomfort by which they can feel more in control of their body.

 

Biography: I was born in Washington state, but moved to Minnesota when I was very young. I spent most of my childhood on a cattle farm in Esko. I grew up loving animals (and still do!). There hasn't been a time in my life where I didn't have at least one fuzzy critter in my life. After I graduated high school, it took me a while to find my career path. I went to Michigan for a couple years for Engineering before I decided it just wasn't for me, and I also considered Occupational Therapy. Finally, I went to Lake Superior College for Massage Therapy, and it was a perfect fit. Now I am honored to be part of the Eagles Nest team, and am excited to learn and grow with the community.

 

My Massage Style: My touch is smooth and flowing, connecting the body as a whole. I can also be focused and intuitive while working on tight problem areas. My main focus is catering to my clients needs, and making sure my massage is perfect for them as an individual.

What I enjoy most about bodywork: I not only love seeing how relaxed my clients get after a massage, but massage has a healing and calming effect on me as well.

Biography: I was born and raised in Superior, WI. Growing up, I wanted to be some sort of scientist, especially if I could work with the environment and animals. I originally went to college at UW-Superior for biology and chemistry and really enjoyed learning how the world works, even if there was a lot of math involved. After I left UW-Superior, a friend of mine became pregnant, and I found a passion for birth work and advocacy. Through this new interest, I also learned about many alternative therapies including massage and how beneficial and holistic they can be. I enrolled at Lake Superior College's Massage Therapy program soon after and have loved every minute of my massage career. I am incredibly grateful and humbled to be a part of the fantastic Eagle's Nest massage team. In addition to working at Eagle's Nest, I work as a pharmacy technician. In my free time, I love spending time with my husband and pets, especially if we are outside. I am a big fan of knitting, crocheting, crafting, reading, acting, and learning new things.

 

My massage style: My massage style is very fluid and relaxing, and I take great care in listening and adapting to my clients' needs. I also see massage as a team effort between therapist and client.

Biography: I grew up on a dairy farm outside of the small town of Albany near St. Cloud Minnesota.  In 2013, I moved to Duluth to pursue and find what I wanted in life. Since I moved to Duluth I have found many new interests and hobbies. I enjoy spending time with my husband, puppy, and kitten and taking long hikes during the weekend. I also have recently started doing crafts with my mother when I travel home. I have always known how important it is to help people and be a part of someone’s life. I worked in a nursing home for many years, but I knew I wanted more.  I was eventually led to massage therapy, and I couldn’t be more pleased. It is a wonderful fit for my life.  I am very happy to be a part of the Eagles Nest team.

I spent some years traveling and eventually made my way back to Duluth. Aside from massage, I practice yoga, meditation, ki gong, and martial arts. I also enjoy gardening, studying spirituality, wellness, herbs and nutrition. I love being out in nature weather it be hiking, canoeing, barefoot yoga, or camping.

MASSAGE THERAPIST

Quote: "Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished."
-Lao Tzu

 

Therapy Provided: Deep Tissue, Relaxation, Pregnancy

 

Training: Over 600 hours at Lake Superior College, Yoga Teacher Training: 200 hours at Yoga Garden of Northeast Minneapolis

 

What I enjoy most about bodywork: I love helping clients reconnect with their bodies so they can reconnect with themselves. By gaining greater body awareness we know more of what we need in our mental and spiritual lives, so we can move forward and grow into our optimal selves.

 

Biography: I grew up on a hobby farm in a very small town just South of Duluth. Growing up I spent a great deal of time outside, learning about the natural world that surrounds us. I gravitated toward the sense of touch; I loved to massage my mom for hours on end, feel the different textures of growing plants and the ever varying sensations of Minnesota’s cold winters and hot summers. With the love and patience shown to me by my family, I was given the freedom and time to find my own path in life. I explored new places and gained new insights to take with me in my journey. In the spring of 2016 I completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training in Minneapolis which became the catalyst for me to start the career I believe I was born to do, massage therapy. I moved back to the North-land and promptly started school at Lake Superior College. I will continue to learn, experiment and be humbled by the fascinating field of bodywork. I am honored to be apart of the Eagles Nest community and look forward to continual growth.

 

My massage style: I meet my clients where they are at today, it all depends on what my client’s needs are and what my intuition is telling me. It will be therapeutic and can be slow and soothing or more invigorating. Either way it will be focused on my client.

What I enjoy most about bodywork: I love to learn, and I love to help others. Working as a massage therapist allows me to do just that. I look forward to helping my clients with whatever ailments they may have, that are preventing them from enjoying the vast opportunities life has to offer.

Biography: Born and raised in Duluth, I attended Lake Superior College where I received my Associates of the Arts degree. While at LSC I took advantage of their study abroad program, with my now husband I traveled to Florence Italy in 2010. This trip opened my mind to new possibilities and taught me that life goes far beyond what happens at home. Once back in the states I finished my collage career with receiving my certification in Massage Therapy. I've since worked at a multitude of places and even opened my own massage studio for a short time. I'm excited to now be a part of the Eagle Nest team, where I can continue to help others and grow as a massage therapist.

What I enjoy most about bodywork: The feeling of satisfaction that comes from giving another life more comfort, less pain, and hopefully a stronger connection with humanity through the stillness of their own inner being.

In early 2016 my family embarked on a national search for the best places to live, bike, work, learn and love. Duluth won!

When I finally decided to go to massage school, I really wanted to find one that not only specialized in structural recovery, but also understood the power of therapeutic intent, & relaxation.

I had never really known what I wanted to do, but two things kept coming to mind; music and massage therapy. During my time in Minneapolis, I met a wonderful musician and friend, who performed mainly at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival with a band mate. I have been pursuing my love for music with them, and have been performing musically now for 5 years. In 2010, I decided to make a change in my life. I found Anthem College, enrolled in their massage therapy program, and was amazed at how much we learned! The human body is a wondrous thing! I graduated in February of 2012, while working at a massage establishment near Elk River. During my schooling, I was engaged to my now husband, who has lived in Duluth almost his entire life. Just before the wedding, I moved to Duluth, and had the privilege of becoming a part of the Eagles Nest team. My hobbies are making music, laughing with friends and family, and getting lost in the wonders of the planet and universe.

My massage style: I am known for putting clients to sleep. Even my deep work is very relaxing. I use a lot of slow, relaxing strokes, using different amounts of pressure, depending on the client’s needs. Then, I change it up with some stimulating strokes to focus on a particular area of tension.
