Licensed: Massage Therapist, Reiki Master Teacher

“I got into the massage therapy industry after recovering from an accident that made it difficult for me to stand or lift my arms above my head. I wanted to help others using a natural healing therapy.

“What I enjoy most is seeing my client’s lives and bodies change in ways they didn’t think was possible. After just a few treatments, they see and feel positive changes. I like to combine therapies and facilitate healing on all levels, including physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

“On a more personal note, I am a ceremonial and spiritual leader with the Pachamama Native American church. I have been a massage therapist for over 20 years with Pain Therapy Associates. Whatever your ailment, I believe I can help you! I have also worked with the University of Minnesota women’s athletic training center.

“I totally enjoy gardening to grow produce, which I give to anyone who will use it in a healthy way. I love hanging out on my lake kayaking and fishing, and I cannot resist a long motorcycle ride through the countryside on a hot summer day. In winter, I like to play in the snow because I’m from Minnesota, don’tcha know!”
