I studied Massage Therapy at East West College of the Healing Arts and completed my program in 2008. There I was introduced to the idea of Structural Integration (SI) and had some wonderful teachers who inspired me in that direction.
I established my Massage Therapy Practice in Hood River at the end of 2008. As I received my first SI series the idea that this is what I wanted to pursue was solidified. I felt it helped me become the best version of myself at that time.
The physical and mental shifts are things that continue to resonate and progress for me. When I had the opportunity to participate in the KMI training in 2013 I was ready for it. I became KMI certified, and board certified in Structural Integration through IASI (International Association of Structural Integrators) at the end of 2013.
As a practitioner I love helping people find a level of comfort in their bodies that really allows them to live. I love using my body to enjoy the amazing landscape of the Pacific Northwest whether that is hiking, biking, skiing, or simply taking a relaxed stroll through my rural neighborhood.
