 I have been practicing massage therapy on Saltspring Island since I graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 1997. Over my 21 years working as a Registered Massage Therapist I have had the opportunity to work with a diverse clientele. Some of the education I have received over the years are John Barnes Myofascial release, pregnancy massage, breast mastectomy rehabilitation and TRE – trauma releasing exercises . I network with many other health practioners on the island and believe in a team approach to health care.

There is so much to learn about the human body and I love to help people. I am passionate about healing and continue to take training on various modalities that enhance my work.

Every person is unique and so are my treatments. I start each session with an assessment and evaluation, I listen to my clients needs and use various modalities to help achieve their goals for treatment.

I am so grateful  for my teachers, John Barnes PT, Natale Rao RMT, Neil Pearson PT. All who have inspired me to go deeper and help people in a way that is rewarding.

When I am not working at Pura Vida you will find me either on the yoga mat, playing soccer, walking in the forest, playing with my dog on the beach, travelling or spending time with my family and friends.
