I have always been an active person from my early years of competitive gymnastics and cheerleading to my love of working out and lifting weights.

When I was 21, my personal trainer introduced me to myofascial release (MFR). We became great friends over the years, and I was inspired by how many people he was able to help. I knew I wanted to add MFR to my skillset and decided to become a massage therapist.

In my mid-twenties, stress from the physical demands I had placed on my body over the years started to take a toll. I tried treatments like deep tissue massage and dry needling with a physical therapist. These treatments did not help in restoring my body to a healthy level.

In November 2014, I attended my first John F. Barnes MFR training workshop. After one workshop, I had better alignment and less joint popping. Since then, I have completed many of his training workshops and continue to receive self-treatment.

I am amazed by all the ways MFR has enriched my life. It is truly rewarding to pass this along to my clients and celebrate with them as they heal.

When I am not working, I like being outside as much as possible – especially in the summer. I enjoy hiking, light running and traveling when possible. Australia is my bucket list trip, but when I need a quick getaway, you will find me playing at Disney World in Florida.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Wellness and Exercise Science from Middle Tennessee State University (2011) and graduated from The Georgia Massage School in 2013.
