Caring for others is a part of my nature that was ingrained early in my life. As a young teen, I spent many nights and weekends babysitting children. Alternately, as a high school senior I assisted elderly residents at Sherwood Assisted Living Center, helping them with their activities of daily life. I realized I had an aptitude for listening, the most important part of delivering care. For nearly a decade, I worked as a dental assistant, bridging the gap between patients and dentists, and establishing a comfortable rapport in an environment uncomfortable for many.
I began practicing massage at Soluna Wellness and Massage after graduating from Port Townsend School of Massage in 2014. I relish the opportunity to increase my knowledge of massage techniques and I am excited to have completed a course in Intra-oral Massage, designed to relieve muscle tension and soreness in the TMJ (temporomandibular joint). With a background in dentistry, the practice of intra-oral massage comes naturally to me, especially considering the sensitive nature of working around and inside the mouth. I am happy to be able to bring an additional alternative treatment to those suffering the pain and discomfort of TMJ Disorders. Additionally, I have been trained in Myofascial Release from Nancy Johns at Peninsula Work Fit in Port Angeles, and have taken a course in Myofascial Release through John Barnes.
I am committed to learning techniques and treatments that will allow me to provide my clients with the best possible care. I strive to listen to my clients and deliver care in an environment that allows them to experience relaxation and comfort.
I strive to help people with a mix of modalities, to create an inner peace for themselves that will allow them to heal from the inside both physically and emotionally. Listening to my clients and giving them the best massage that we both feel fit is very important to me. I want my clients to feel comfortable when they come see me and know that I am here to help them feel better! I have lived in Sequim my whole life. I love that I have the opportunity to work with the community that I grew up in.
After graduating from Peninsula College in 2011 with 816 hours of massage training, I began working at a Chiropractic office for the first 2 years of my career. From there I worked at Soluna Wellness & Massage for the last 3 years, until I decided to open up my own business. I specialize in Deep Tissue, Swedish, Hot Stone, and Lymphatic Massage, and am always taking new massage courses to further my knowledge. I look forward to working with you in the future!
