When I was 17 years old I was in my first car accident. I injured my neck and back and this is when I experienced my first massages. I was so excited at how well it worked at calming down my muscle pain and stiffness. I made a full recovery from that accident, when BAM I was in another accident. I also received massage as part of that treatment program with that accident and I had the same outcome. I was so excited about how my muscles would calm down with each massage. So when I was pregnant it was an easy decision to seek out massage when I started to experience the aches and pains of my pregnancies. It was at time that I started to think about making a career change. I love the idea of making people feel better through the benefits of relaxation, muscle tension relief and the quietness of the massage room. I had been working in finance for 6 years and after our second baby was born it was clear that our needs as a family had changed. I needed to be home more with our kids and massage therapy offered the opportunity to have an unconventional schedule. Perfect!! About 3 months later my husband and I decided to move from our home in Arizona back to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. We landed right back here in Sammamish.
After carefully researching schools, I decided to enroll in massage school at Renton Technical College. They had a longer program than most but, they also offered some extra training through externships. Once I graduated from school in 2009, I knew that I wanted to specialize in helping people with injuries and treatment. I had experienced the benefits so many times myself that I knew this was the area I wanted to specialize in. In my past I have had massage paired with Chiropractic and have always felt that it worked so well together. As I started looking for the perfect location to practice I knew I wanted to be at a Chiropractors office and have loved it ever since. My specialties include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Sport Massage, Hot Stone, treatment and injury work. There is nothing better than helping someone feel better.
Having lived on the eastside most of my life, I am thrilled to be living and working in Sammamish. My husband and I both grew up here and attended Margaret Mead Elementary School. We have seen all of the awesome changes that happened when Redmond peeled off and Sammamish was formed. It warms my heart to be a part of this wonderful community
On my off hours I enjoy hitting the gym with my husband or spending family time outdoors, hiking, biking, and walking. For vacation we love to go on road trips to our favorite places in California, although nothing beats a good camping trip here in the Pacific Northwest.
