I chose to become a Licensed Massage Therapist and received my education at Stautzenberger College in Ohio, where I graduated in 2011. I am trained in Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage, and have experienced in Prenatal Massage also. When I will have finished homeschooling our youngest, my goal is to become educated in massaging burn victims and pediatric cancer patients. It is my hope that I can provide you with excellent service in improving and maintaining better health. I enjoy working in this clinic and am proud to be part of such a caring team.
