About the Practitioner


License # 5971

From the simplicity of helping induce relaxation and relieve pain through touch to the depth of releases, integration and transformation that are possible through bodywork, I find Massage Therapy to be an unlimited arena for exploration and growth both for my clients and myself.  What I can say is that Massage Therapy has been a much more fascinating, broad area of study and rewarding endeavor than I could ever imagine!

I provide this service in a spirit of sacredness, compassion and a profound respect for the experience of being human.



I graduated in 1996 from Cascade Institute of Massage and Body Therapies in Eugene, Oregon with a focus on Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Acupressure and Myofascial Release.   I have also studied Advanced Myofascial Techniques, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Fascilitation, Foot Reflexology, Trigger Point Therapy, Hot Stone Therapy, Breema and Reconnective Healing.  In 2004, I earned certification in Orthopedic Massage from the Omeri Institute.  Currently, I'm pursuing certification in Advanced Myofascial Release thru the Advanced Trainings program endorsed by the Rolfing Institute.

I have been a full-time licensed massage therapist since 1997.

I have also been a professional ceramic artist since 1991.

In 1985 I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science and Mathematics  from Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago, and I worked in the computer field for over 12 years.

Currently, I live and work in the beautiful city of Eugene, Oregon with my husband and son, where I continue to pursue further growth and development in all the areas of my interest and passion.
