I am passionate about

fitness, health education

& massage.

I have been interested in massage as a career for over 20-years; when I originally researched schools years ago, I did not find a school that stood up to my expectation of what I wanted to learn. National Holistic Institue came up in a web search when I was shifting careers two years ago. They had a balanced cirriculum and when I visited the school, I felt at home. Deciding to go back to school has been a rewarding accomplishment.


My 900-hour training was completed at National Holistic Institute, College of Massage - Petaluma Campus. Further education at the Emeryville Campus in the 450-hour Advanced Neuromuscular Therapy program which concentrates on Trigger Point Therapy.


Keeping active is the key to maintaining my lifestyle. In addition to working out at Sweatmood Fitness in Santa Rosa, I include massage as part of my health & wellness plan.
