“I am passionate about being a Licensed Massage Therapist because each client is unique and has different concerns. Together we can achieve the specific goals that leaves the client with less tension throughout their body. I have chosen a career path that I absolutely love by becoming a Massage Therapist.
I graduated from Spa Tech Institute in January 2017 from the Therapeutic Massage program – trained in Deep Tissue Therapy.
I decided to learn more about skin care after working alongside Aestheticians in the spa industry.
I returned to school and graduated from Spa Tech Institute from the Aesthetics program. Since becoming a Licensed Aesthetician I am eager to work with my clients to reach their goals for healthier skin not only for some pampering time and relaxation.
It has been very rewarding for myself to provide wonderful services to wonderful clients who are very deserving of some “me time” who leave feeling rejuvenated.
With my free time I manage a successful firewood business with my brother. I enjoy spending my time with my family and simply being outdoors.”
