I have been a licensed massage therapist since 2004. My journey started out actually at the age of 16 when I knew that I would someday work for myself. I had no idea how or when but I knew in my heart that I was not meant to punch a clock or have a boss.
Fast forward to the age of 30 when I finally became disenchanted with the travel industry I had been working in for the past 10 years. I kept getting this inner nudge that was telling me to check into massage therapy and finally that nudge got so loud that I had no choice. I went to massage school and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made! I received my massage license in June 2004 in Las Vegas, NV and became an independent contractor for massage after working in the local spas for the first 8 months. I still had this burning desire to work for myself. So, I went for it and have never looked back.
I have a high respect for the massage profession and truly do believe this is my calling, or at least one of them! I am also a Reiki Master and believe in the healing power of touch and energy. I am always seeking new and interesting things to learn and practice.
After 11 years of living in Las Vegas again I was feeling the nudge to move to Oregon. It took me TEN YEARS to finally make that happen. I realize that was all fear based thinking. Now my cat, Daphne, and I live in Oregon and not only am I happy but I can see that my girl is very happy as well.
