I graduated from MacEwan University’s 2200 hour massage therapy program in 2015. I was first drawn to massage therapy when I received physiotherapy and massage treatments for an injury as a child.

Since graduating in 2015, I have continued to improve my work by taking additional courses which have helped me to better treat clients and broaden my skill set. My further training and experience this far includes courses in Reiki, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage, Hot Jade Stone massage and Thai massage.
