My journey with massage started because I wanted to be an anthropologist. I have always loved people and their stories. I wanted to connect with people on the deepest levels possible. I wanted to help them as their problems and needs arose. Body work allows me to do both. I fell in love and never looked back.

I graduated from massage school in August of 2008 and since then have worked mostly in Reno, Nevada. Over the course of my career I have worked at a massage school, a world class spa, and owned my own business. I like to call what I do “Relaxing Deep” as I believe it it is important to address the body in specific targeted ways while still allowing for restfulness and integration.

In addition to massage, I am a Reiki Master and certified Psychic and Healer. Using my extra senses I look at energies or emotions that may be stagnant in or around the body. I then use a variety of techniques to help my clients release what is blocking them, and keeping them stuck in pain. I do this work on and off the Massage Table.

My Husband and I moved to Oregon in 2015 when he got a job at Nike. It meant saying goodbye to my business and the state of my birth and has opened us up to a fun new adventure.  After 30 years of the desert we are happy to live in the magical forest that is the Pacific Northwest!

Feel free to call or email me with any questions you may have. I’m looking forward to speaking with you!
