I have been in a medical and health care environment since 2001.
My first job at the young age of 16 was an ICU nursing technician at Riverview Regional Medical Center. This began my curiosity to learn all I could about the human body and how it heals.
I worked as an office manager at Anniston Neurology clinic, learning how to run an office in a health care environment.
I was a corrections/medical officer for 3 years Calhoun County where I learned to respect every human is on a healing journey no matter their bad choices in life.
Until late 2018, I was working at Encompass Health as a Therapy Technician, where I assisted nursing and physical therapists.
After 14 years of working, I decided to go back to school to become a Massage Therapist.
That's where it all changed for me.
I attended Massage Therapy school and learned a different approach to being healthy and to healing. While in school, I was able to complete a Psoas Major release certification. Since graduation, I have continued my education, with the completion of N-Touch Raindrop technique. I also offer Swedish, Deep Tissue, Hot Stones, and Fascia Blasting.
The passion I have for massage shows through my work. I believe the body is a healing machine and can be facilitated through massage, self-care, and essential oils.
I strive to share my knowledge of massage, essential oils and healing with everyone I meet.

I have always had a love for learning and learning about how the human body works and heals.
For the past 6 years, I have worked in physical therapy. I work with various patients administering modalities and moving them through their exercises. I also assist in billing, scheduling, and numerous office tasks.
I graduated Gadsden State Massage Therapy program in 2017. I am currently working towards becoming a physical therapist assistant at Wallace State.
One of my biggest goals is to bridge the gap between medical and massage communities, as a firm believer in restoration capabilities of therapeutic touch I want these modalities to work
together for healing for everyone.
