I’ve had a passion for this work my entire adult life and have been a licensed, practicing Massage Therapist and Yoga Teacher for over 3 decades. Yoga and bodywork are the 2 things that have had the most profound impact on my life, and I have dedicated my work to sharing them.
I studied massage therapy at Educating Hands School of Massage in Miami, Florida and hold a long list of certifications in allied modalities. As a bodyworker, I specialize in Deep Tissue Massage, Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage and Bamboossage. I have a kind heart and strong hands.
I was certified Teacher of Yoga at the Sivananda Yoga Ranch in Woodborune, NY in 1992. With continued study of different styles and the deeper aspects of Yoga, I was lead to India where I studied, practiced and taught Yoga.
I created Massage-Ology with a passionate desire and lofty objective: to inspire and educate therapists so that we can soften the rough edges of the world by healing one body at a time.

I am the official greeter, and I was born to do this work. I’m a natural at making humans feel happy and relaxed. I wake up every morning excited to do my job. I love it so much my services are free! I do accept tips and bellyrubs. There’s a jar of cookies on the desk that says, “Good Dog.” That’s me!
