I am a native of South Carolina and have been living in Columbia since 1971. I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a B.A. in Media Arts. It wasn't long after receiving my degree that my true passion came knocking, and it wasn't media arts. It was my desire to heal and help others heal.
I enrolled in the Massage Therapy Certification Program at the Body Therapy Institute in North Carolina in 1993. I am board certified in therapeutic massage and bodywork and I am licensed by the state of South Carolina (License No. 1031). During my first year out of massage school, I worked at a chiropractor's office. At the end of that year, I opened my own office. I have been practicing therapeutic massage and bodywork in Columbia since 1994.
Massage therapy opened the door for me to explore many other methods for healing. In 2007, I received training in the Ida P. Rolf method of Structural Integration from the Institute for Structural Integration in Miami, FL. Then in 2014, another door opened and I became a Reconnection® - Certified Practitioner.
