A connection to community has always been important to me.  As I move through my professional and personal life there has been one very consistent theme:  People and relationships make all the difference.  Ultimately it is a personal decision whether each new situation is one for opportunity or adversity.  When you choose opportunity the people and the bonds formed in that moment can guide you to a place of joy, growth, and success.  I have included this section to share in community, opportunity, and education.  I enjoy making connections; if you see opportunity to connect please don't hesitate to contact me. 

Education

Education has always been extremely important to me.  It makes me a well-rounded practitioner and balanced individual.  I have completed the 12 month Tensegrity Medicine™ Mentorship under Kelly Clancy OTR/L, CHT, LMP, and continue my study with Kelly.  Kelly founded the of Seattle Center for Structural Medicine and The Northwest School of Structural Therapy.  She is currently teaching abroad and offering courses through her website:  https://kellyclancy.com/  

During my Tensegrity Medicine™ Mentorship I opted to participate in fresh tissue dissection.  This experience was life changing for my view of the human body and the work I continue to do with fascia. Kelly Clancy and Todd Garcia were excellent teachers for this experience.  If you wish to learn more you can view Laboratories Of Anatomical Enlightenment here: http://www.lofae.com/  

In my massage therapy practice I enjoy incorporating the style of Lomi Lomi.  I have a love for the Hawaiian islands and visit whenever I am able.  I have been fortunate enough to visit Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island of Hawaii.  I am drawn to Lomi for its healing strokes and inclusive approach of mind and body.  I have taken some Lomi classes and plan to continue studying. 

After learning Bowen therapy I became a certified Bowenwork® Practitioner through the American Bowen Academy.  I continue to study Bowenwork® and maintain continuing education for this technique.    Learn more about Bowen here: www.americanbowen.academy
