About

My Journey to Massage & Bodywork I began my post secondary education as a philosophy major at the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse. I was fascinated by philosophers such as Carol Christ, Jean Paul Sartre, and Aristotle. Philosophy required that I explore my own thoughts and ideas as well as those who have shaped our world. I found a sense of wonder in learning from other people who look at the world in different ways. My love of learning was affirmed in college and inspired me to find a profession where I was challenged and motivated to continue my exploration.

After completing my Bachelor’s degree, I worked in the corporate world for several years. Let’s put it this way: I didn’t fit the mold. I knew I was meant to continue my internal work, but how? Through a series of synchronistic events, I found myself at the St. Croix Center for the Healing Arts. I was so fortunate to meet people who share the same love that I have for learning and healing. Bodywork and philosophy share many things. They share a love for questions and a love for wisdom. I have found a sense of peace in healing. My clients are true teachers and it is an honor to learn with them.
