A traditionally educated Registered Nurse turned Massage Therapist, I graduated from Helene Fuld School of Nursing in Trenton, New Jersey, and worked in the nursing field for 9 years before discovering my passion for massage. My experience in nursing included hospital medical/surgical care, urgent care, and medically supervised weight loss. In 1987 I began working in the chiropractic office of Dr. Claude Lessard in Morrisville, Pennsylvania, and while assisting him, developed an interest in Massage Therapy. I soon realized I had a previously undiscovered skill and a passion for helping others to not only relieve pain, but to truly heal and maintain wellness.
In 1991, I attended Health Choices Center for the Healing Arts, in the Princeton, New Jersey area, a 350+ hour holistic massage therapy program, and began my career as a Massage Therapist. I established a practice in southeastern Pennsylvania, and in 1997 moved to Atlanta to do the same. While practice building in Georgia, I worked in several chiropractic offices and in an Atlanta area spa. Since 2001, I have been exclusively in private practice, and am now located within the offices of Intelligent Chiropractic, alongside my long time chiropractor, Dr. Sal Minicozzi.
I believe that the whole person should be considered in any massage and bodywork treatment. My preferred approach is full body therapeutic massage with focus on specific areas of injury and discomfort, whether acute or chronic, in a relaxing and comfortable treatment session. This engages total relaxation which allows the injured tissue to receive the most benefit from manual therapy without resistance from the body or the mind.
My specialties include management of old or chronic injuries, rotator cuff tendonitis, low back and sciatic pain, migraines and other head, neck, and shoulder dysfunction, as well as pre- and post surgical treatment of neck, spine and joint conditions. Many people have stated that they have never had a massage quite like mine before. I have remarkable success in helping people to relieve stress, muscle tension, and acute and chronic pain.
