I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Northern Illinois University. I moved out to Columbus, Ohio, to pursue a Master's degree in Social Work at The Ohio State University. After years of providing mental health counseling, I became more aware of how the body and mind are interconnected; and I went back to school to become a Licensed Massage Therapist.
I am professionally trained with 750 hours of classroom instruction through Columbus State Community College, Massage Therapy program, with classroom concentration on Trigger Point Therapy.
I strongly believe that taking care of your physical and mental health go hand in hand. The benefits of massage extend beyond physical relaxation: massage also relaxes the mind and has a positive affect of your mental wellness!
I spent several years teaching group exercise classes at the YMCA. I am currently a certified Power Pilates Core Mat I (Beginner) and Core Mat II (Intermediate) instructor. A strong core can prevent many injuries.
