I was always fascinated about “healing arts.’ I was blessed with the opportunity to change careers in midlife. I left my corporate job and one month later I attended my massage orientation class. To be honest, I believe it was divine intervention!
I was working as a store manager for a popular furniture rental company, and saw an advertisement for a local school that promised to introduce me to a way to help a lot of people improve their qualities of life.
What developed my passion and drove me into the profession was the benefits of bodywork for my daughter, Heather, who achieved functioning recovery of autism—40 seizures a day and sensory processing disorder, which made her shutdown for up to 5 days, unable to walk or talk.
My journey with massage therapy began at an early age due to the influence of my loving great-grandmother from Berlin, Germany. What is considered holistic health living today was the normal way of life for her back then.
