There is no one circumstance or scenario that led me to massage therapy. An interest to someday share the experience of physical rehabilitation with people and a curiosity about the unknown depths and complexities of the human body led me to study Psychology and Human Physiology. After taking a break from school to reevaluated career goals, hike and learn about organic farming in New Zealand, I moved to Bend, Oregon to study Massage Therapy at COCC. In 2011 I received my Massage Therapy License and in 2012 completed a Bachelors of Science in Psychology from the University of Oregon.
I opened my own practice in downtown Bend in January of 2013 and have since moved to Revive Skin Services on Neff and Purcell. Working out of Revive allows me to provide clients with a quite and soothing atmosphere, as well as the option for facial/massage combination treatments.
In May of 2014 I received a certification in Oncology Massage and currently volunteer in the Infusion Room at St. Charles. I also offer oncology massage/facial combinations with Shelly Hoppel (Certified in Oncology Esthetic) of Revive.

Human skin is porous; the world flows through you. Your senses are large pores that let the world in. By being attuned to the wisdom of your senses, you will never become an exile in your own life, an outsider lost in an external spiritual place that your will and intellect, have constructed.” – John O’Donohue
