I was born and raised just outside Hudson, Wisconsin. Throughout life, I have been fascinated by nature and its ability to support and promote healing. These observations began as a child where countless hours beneath the tall pines elicited great inner peace and wellbeing. The power of these external experiences with nature only intrigued me to further understand the power of natural healing.
As an emerging adult I began independent study of medicinal plants and the power of meditation. My deep appreciation for the earth inspired me to enroll at the University of Minnesota in the College of Natural Resources. In December 2003, I received my Bachelor's of Science Degree from the Natural Resources and Environmental Studies program.
From 2003 through 2007, I focused my energy raising my four children until, truly, one day I realized I needed to pursue formal study in complimentary healing therapies.
In February 2008, I began classes in the 853-hour massage therapy program at the Saint Croix Center for the Healing Arts in Hudson, Wisconsin. My training included a variety of massge techniques (Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports, Hot Stone, Thai Yoga) and energy work therapies (Reiki, Acupressure, Reflexology).
Sacred Lotus Massage & Bodywork was established shortly after in July 2008 and has been growing since. I feel very blessed to have the numerous support from family, friends, and clients. I thank all of you for the being a part of my journey and for letting me be witness to yours.
This life is a gift.
