I am a Licensed Massage Therapist and a professional member of the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals, a graduate of Michigan State University and the Marquette School of Therapeutic Massage. I've completed certification in Thai Abdominal massage and Precision Neuromuscular Therapy for the spine and thorax. I am enthusiastic about learning and am currently studying to become a certified Functional Medicine Health Coach, due to graduate March 2020. 

I am the mother of four daughters, ages 21, 19, 16 and 14. They continue to inspire and challenge me daily. I am so grateful to be a part of their lives. I am also a certified coach of the UP Rowing Club and competitive club member. Being on the water provides a fantastic venue, in addition to hiking and skiing, to enjoy the beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan!

Back In Balance allows me to support others in their quest for health and wellness. I customize each client's massage according to your needs that particular day using a variety of techniques including Swedish massage, gua sha, hot stones, trigger point therapy and sports massage. I am also a huge advocate for prenatal massage having personally experienced it's many benefits during my four pregnancies. Pregnancy and labor are one of the most challenging and empowering times in a woman's life. Massage helps a woman's mind and body rise to the challenge. I love working with expectant moms!
