A native of Casper, Wyoming, my interest in health started from a shoulder injury in high-school. Working with both a physical therapist and a massage therapist to rehabilitate my shoulder showed me the importance of self-care. After a long winding path through careers such as an oil and gas engineer, coffee shop owner, and TSA agent, I decided to pursue massage and graduated from the Berkana Institute of Massage Therapy in 2016. My personal view is that training in topics such as Neuromuscular Therapy, deep tissue, myofascial release, and others has given me a large toolbox of approaches to fully customize every session to the client's needs and help them how they best need to be helped.
"The world of massage straddles the line between science and art. Yes, the body works much like a machine in nature in that we can learn evidence based practice and procedure for dealing with dysfunction and pain... but the mind adds a fascinating layer on top of that. I'm interested in exploring both the psychosomatic and somatopsychic relationships inherent in receiving massage and working with my clients to bring both body and mind back into balance."
