I have always wanted to be a Massage Therapist since I was a young girl but motherhood came first. When they became old enough to understand what following your dreams really meant, I provided the example by going for it. They have seen me go through it all, including Graduating this past June. Massage to me means to help bring a better quality of life back into my client’s life by working as a team.
Before this, I was an educational assistant for 5+ years with WSD1 and worked with many beautiful souls through many specialized programs that ranged all through the age groups. Still at the end of the day, Massage Therapy was always my true calling.
I look forward to delivering the best care to my abilities and meeting every one’s needs through my work. I offer therapeutic, relaxation and Cupping Massage.
