My interest in human anatomy and physiology began while studying Biology in High School. I was fascinated by the structures of the body, why they developed the way they did, and how they all seemed to be perfectly designed to help us survive in the world. Studying Massage Therapy at the Fingerlakes School of Massage in Ithaca allowed me to learn about the human anatomy as well as learn the art of human touch through the study of multiple modalities. I quickly realized that our environment, work and everyday life has become a burden on our bodies. Our bodies were never designed to sit at a desk for eight hours a day, and neither were our minds for that matter.
The focus of my work is to assist my clients by treating their discomfort with techniques and styles I've learned from working with Rolfers, myofascial body workers, and other incredible therapists. Along with treating the client directly, I also explore the underlying causes of their discomfort to help them gain a better understanding of why they feel the way they do.

I have been a Massage Therapist for over 6 years having graduated from the Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage in Syracuse. Massage has always been a passion of mine, handed down to me by my Mother who used to give me massage therapy before bed as a child. This passion has driven me over the years to give the best quality care possible to my clients by including different modalities into one treatment such as Swedish, Orthopedic, Cupping and Deep Tissue Massage. I tend to cater to the client’s immediate needs, while finding ways to provide long term relief and results. My sessions connect body and mind, to walk out of the door feeling lighter and happier.
I have many other passions including Yoga, AcroYoga and teaching. I am a certified Yoga Teacher and Acroyoga Teacher. I have also worked at the Massage School in Syracuse for 3 years as a Student Clinic Supervisor and will begin teaching Swedish Massage to new massage students in 2019.
I am excited to partner with Hand in Health & Rev Fit by combining my knowledge as a Massage Therapist and Yoga/AcroYoga Teacher to take holistic approach to wellness.
