I am passionate about

fitness, health education

& massage.

I have been interested in massage as a career for over 20-years; when I originally researched schools years ago, I did not find a school that stood up to my expectation of what I wanted to learn. National Holistic Institute was the school I chose as I shifted careers years ago. They had a balanced curriculum and when I visited the school, I felt at home. Deciding to go back to school has been a rewarding accomplishment.


My 900-hour training was completed at National Holistic Institute, College of Massage - Petaluma Campus. Further education at the Emeryville Campus in the 450-hour Advanced Neuromuscular Therapy program which concentrates on Trigger Point Therapy. I am continuing to learn from clients and seeking out different modalities. My most recent certifications are in Burn Scar Massage and Kinesiology Taping. By the Spring of 2019, I will also be a Certified Personal Trainer and Corrective Exercise Specialist.


Keeping active is the key to maintaining my lifestyle. In addition to working out at Sweatmood Fitness in Santa Rosa, I include massage as part of my health & wellness plan.
