I love working with active and health conscious people. I was always an athlete and always struggled with injuries and pains while I was training. Rolfing really helped turn that around for me and I love teaching other active people new ways move, decrease pain and just get feeling more comfortable in their daily life. I have worked in Michigan for 10 years and have been fortunate enough to have helped hundreds of people out of pain.
I was raised in Alaska, in a small town that isn’t short on friendly, hardworking people. But also people that love nature and are drawn to natural forms of health. I grew up on a steady diet of fresh fish and garden foods. I spent plenty of time outdoors. I learned to love hiking, basketball, running, berry-picking and fishing. I went to the University of Alaska Anchorage (a place that I considered the big city at the time). It was there that I received my first Rolfing session and I fell in love with it.
The Rolfer cleared up my back pain and I was left incredibly curious by such a strange sounding therapy. I quickly found out how much I loved anatomy and the idea of working to help people appealed to me. I couldn’t wait to get started.
Within a year, I was off to the Rolf Institute and a wonderful adventure that has led me to a very fulfilling career and the ability to help get other people out of pain and back to their favorite activities.
I still try to keep up with my education and always find learning new ways to change and heal the body fascinating. Here I am ten years later and still totally in love with the human body and eager to help and teach people all I can. I am still thankful for such a wonderful career.
