A Bit About Me

I have offered health and wellness treatment through therapeutic-minded care for over 18 years.  I am a certified Yoga Therapist through the International Association of Yoga Therapists and have achieved the highest certification of E-RYT 500 with Yoga Alliance.  In 2021, I graduated with honors from the American Institute of Alternative Medicine and am now an Ohio Board Certified and Licensed Acupuncturist.

I bring my years of continuing education and experience in breathwork, body mechanics, mindfulness and holistic wellness to create a multi-disciplined approach to support the health and healing journey of my patients.

I have a deep love of nature.  In my free time, you can find me on the water paddling, swimming or snorkeling.  Out of the water, I'm hiking, gardening, cooking or reading.  I love travel and exploring the world.

Acupuncture:  I have treated over 300 patients from January to December 2021.  I continue to grow my business and base in Athens, Ohio with acupuncture clients.

Massage:  I have logged thousands of client massage hours since I first began the work in 2007.  With my combined knowledge of body mechanics and educational experience, I offer a unique style of massage and recognize client needs.  Additions to my massage tool kit consist of essential oils, gua sha, and cupping therapy.

Yoga:  I have trained teachers, taught at workshops, conferences and retreats, filmed multiple technique videos, created two practice DVDs, attended continuing education events for over 18 years, and am currently running a thriving and successful studio.  Teachers call me "The teachers teacher" because of my skill and in-depth knowledge of the craft.  My passion is centered in Yoga as Therapy which uses yoga and body mechanics to help people heal from repetitive motion injuries from office work to sports endeavors.
