I graduated from Ashmead College in 2005 with honors. An 805 hour accredited program that included Anatomy, Physiology, Kinesiology, Pathology, Swedish, Sports, Trigger Point & Deep Tissue. I am a licensed massage therapist in the state of Washington. I continue to expand my knowledge, experience and expertise in bodywork and I attend workshops and classes as often as possible to enhance my skills to better serve my clients.
I started my first massage therapist job at Harmony Massage. After learning much about massage therapy, I decided to move on to Edmonds Massage Therapy, which later became Accolades Massage Therapy. Then in 2008 my dream became a reality as I went into business with a co-worker and we opened up Crescent Moon Massage Therapy. In 2010 we both decided to go our separate ways and open up our own businesses solo. I can think of nothing more I'd rather be doing for a career than massage therapy.
Prior to becoming a therapist I worked for the Shoreline School District as a para-educator for 9 years. It was during this time when a little girl I worked with had cerebral palsy and I would accompany her to her therapy sessions. She would receive massage on her atrophied muscles and it really seemed to make her feel better. This was the exact moment I knew I wanted to be able to see that look in someone's eyes after I made them feel better. Just knowing I could help someone in pain was enough motivation for me to work hard and become a therapist.
