Who We Are
I believe in moving with intuition rather than tradition. I come from a diverse background of movement modalities with a goal of incorporating several styles of movement and therapies for the perfect prescription for each individual. I train under the law that everyBODY is different and requires different styles of movement and Physio Therapies to get the most out of their program to have a happy, healthy and pain free life. Each individuals personalized plan is different based on their goals and objectives.
I am passionate and skilled in postural assessment and improving the quality of ones life through manual therapy, treating common postural disorders using various modalities.
I thoroughly enjoy nature, travel & adventure, being with my husband and 17 year old daughter, and my dog.
