I grew up in Rochester, NY my home, my first love. I graduated from a small private school and went on to major in Hotel Management at Niagara University. After spending 9 years in the hotel industry, I decided on a different route completely and enrolled in Massage School.
I am often asked; ‘What made you choose massage’? and I am never sure how to respond. The truth is, I don’t know what led me to the school that day to ask for information, but I am certain I found my calling on the first day of class.
I love massage. I love that it is an art and a science. I love its rich, long-standing and deep-rooted history. Massage and bodywork have the ability to heal not only structurally but also emotionally and mentally and I love experiencing that every day.
I graduated Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage in June 2014; took my state boards and started work in October. I was determined to work for myself and grow to a full-time client list. I showed up every day and worked hard to build Active Muscle Health. My goal was to establish a massage practice that was held to a higher standard. Quality over quantity quickly became a priority with my clients and I knew I wanted to pursue higher levels of education in the massage industry.
In 2017 I had an amazing opportunity to attend a 40-hour medical massage program in Costa Rica. Here, I was able to immerse myself in everything massage; learning new techniques and concepts, meeting amazing therapists, and finding a new self-confidence all while living in paradise.
I try not to categorize my massages. Each massage is customized to the client on the day of their visit.
