After more than fifteen years in the frenetic world of entertainment advertising, I decided to listen to a nagging inner voice and break away from the burnout path. Leaving behind NY, LA and Chicago, I opted for a tranquil new life in a small Michigan town and dedicated myself to a career truer to my own heart. Building on an empathic nature and a long fascination with organic living and natural healing, I undertook the rigorous and comprehensive coursework at The Massage School in Douglas, gaining national certification and licenses to practice in Michigan and Illinois. I’m experienced in Swedish, deep tissue massage, neuromuscular, clinical, craniosacral, shoshin shiatsu and sports massage modalities, with a particular love for deep tissue and pain management therapies. I am also a member of Young Living Essential Oils, and only use products of absolute purity for maximum benefit, tailoring each session to the specific needs of my clients.

I’m a member of Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (ABMP) and American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). Home is in idyllic Pier Cove, on the shores of Lake Michigan near Saugatuck, with my loving husband.
