After graduating from Oberlin College in Ohio with a major in Dance and Choreography I moved to San Francisco and started a Dance Company. A couple of years later I got injured in a dance class and instead of getting better like I always had before...I got worse until I was in constant, chronic pain. I felt that no one could help me and I would perhaps never get better...I had fallen into the deep rabbit hole of helplessness. I stayed there, stopped dancing and moped around until I began to learn that there were actually things I could do to make myself feel better...physical things and emotional things. I moved to Seattle, went to the Brian Utting School of Massage (now Cortiva Institute), and freed myself of pain. Now, over 13 years after graduating from massage school, I look back on a wonderful career of facilitating healing for other people who have suffered in pain. Every day I feel a deep sense of gratefulness to my clients who have honored me with the opportunity to work with them and learn with them.
