A competitive athlete throughout childhood and high school, I represented Camas Washington athletics in: Soccer, Track, XC and Wrestling. My Senior year Wrestling, I was first introduced to the world of Sports Massage. A teammate’s mother who was a Massage Therapist volunteered her time to travel and treat wrestlers during tournaments. I remember feeling such intensity with her work but profound relief. During my participation in sports, I endured various sports related injuries that led me to our high school Athletic Trainer. I was fascinated with her effective treatment skills and compassion she had with helping people heal, I knew I wanted to do the same. I loved participating in Athletics, understanding the body, and the rehabilitation process.
I studied Sports Medicine my Senior year and again encountered Sports Massage as a treatment for injuries. In 2006 I graduated from Ashmead College specializing in Sports/Clinical Massage. At only 19 years of age I knew this was the career I was passionate about and wanted to pursue.
At the beginning of my career I spent 8 years at a Chiropractic Office in Camas/Vancouver Washington. While there I built a stronger understanding of Therapeutic techniques and treatment plans. Throughout my employment I volunteered many, many weekends rain or shine offering Sports Massage to runners, of all abilities, training for the Portland Marathon.
In 2014 I began the pursuit of opening my own practice and expanding my knowledge of healing. As of January 2020 I received my Certificate in DeepFeet Bar Therapy, also known as Ashiatsu, which I fell absolutely in love with. It brings Deep Tissue to the next level. I hope that my background, years of experience and continued desire to offer the best bodywork available will put you at ease when searching for relief from injuries or chronic pain. I look forward to treating you!
