What makes you passionate about being a massage therapist: I love to help people. Meeting them exactly where they are and helping them to get to where they want to be. As a massage therapist we get to learn about the person, the body, and how to connect the two. Often, people focus on one or the other on their own. Through massage, we can unite the two and help people become centered and have an opportunity to enjoy life in the way they were meant to enjoy it.
Why do you love Spectrum?: Spectrum not only showed me my true potential, they also held me accountable to that potential to ensure that I would attain it and do something great with it. Spectrum cares deeply about each student and works endlessly to ensure that they not only fulfill their dreams but carry on the Spectrum name with pride and honor. I was so lucky to have found Spectrum. It changed my life in so many ways, and all of it for the better.
What else would you like to share to help folks get to know you better: I’m a mother of 2, passionate about living life by leading through example. I love to help people, but in order to help others, I work hard to make sure that I also take the time to care for myself. Leading by example inside my home and in my practice is a boundary that I clearly set and help others to learn that it is okay to work on yourself. I’m currently in school to further enhance my practice- I’m pursing my Bachelors in Nursing with an added focus on Behavioral Health. I love animals, and work hard to raise money for animal shelters in WA state. I am born and raised in WA and love to hike, camp, kayak, and kickbox. Being active helps me to achieve my goals as a massage therapist.
