I am a graduate of The Institute of Therapeutic Massage. After graduation I started my own home-based therapy business. After a few months of working with clients in my home office I decided I would like to work in other communities, as well as my own. I took an offer to work in a Lima based chiropractic office. This work proved to be very rewarding and this pushed me to branch out even further to work in local communities around my county. I wanted to work with local athletes to help them improve their athletic performance, by providing therapy that would condition the muscles after intense workouts; thus keeping the athlete's muscles in prime condition for competition.
In 2008 I became part of the staff at Ellerbrock Chiropractic in Columbus Grove; where I worked with patients and clients for two years. During my tenure at the chiropractic office I was offered a position at The Institute of Therapeutic Massage as an instructor, for which I accepted.
From Sept 2009 through October 2105 I was an instructor at IOTM. I taught Pathology for the Massage Therapist, Advance Hands-on therapies, introductory massage classes for new students and Business for the manual therapist. I currently teach a class for licensed massage therapists so they may comfortably and safely add essential oils to their therapies; Introduction to Aromatherapy for the Massage Therapist. My passion for teaching goes hand in hand with my passion for learning. I also take continuing education on a regular basis to continually improve my skills in order to best serve my clients.
In February 2016, I became a part of Dr. Ellerbrock's team once again as Medical Massage Therapist, doing the work that I so enjoy; caring for those in need of pain relief. It is my goal to help clients get back to a quality of life they can enjoy without the constant nagging of chronic pain.
Whether you are looking for a basic relaxation hot stone massage, a deep tissue massage, therapy for a recent or past injury or a muscle toning facial, aromatherapy consultation or reiki for stress reduction I can meet most of your needs.
