Born and raised in the Northwest rain, I have a deep appreciation for sunshine, open water, tall trees, and fine coffee (in moderation). I am fascinated with people, critters, and all that grows.
I currently reside in beautiful Edmonds, WA with my favorite sidekick and partner, our non-stop kiddo, and Dot, the globetrotting hound dog. My hobbies include gardening, reading, trivia, cooking, and playing with yarn. I'm currently in my third year of my Master's Program at Antioch University - Seattle, training to become a trauma-focused mental health counselor.
Professionally, I've been practicing massage since 2006, after completing a 1000+ hour massage training program at Brenneke School of Massage. Bodywork is an endless learning experience and I'm honored to have the opportunity to create a healing space for my clients.
I started coaching in 2012 as an extension of my massage practice. Many of my clients wanted additional support around healthy living. I completed a year-long training through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. More recently, I provided coaching through Healthways, both as a lifestyle management coach and Innergy Healthier Weight coach (in partnership with Johns Hopkins Medicine). I'm thrilled to bring additional experience with a broad member base and an even stronger skill set to my private practice.
While massage is provided in our lovely shared space - I also offer in-home or in-office massage (for established clients only). Coaching is available in-office or via phone or Zoom, for your convenience.
