About the Educator:

I have been interested in the power of touch most of my life, but I worked in the trade industry as a welder, machinist, and maintenance mechanic. In 2012 I made a 180 degree career change and found massage therapy, which has become an absolute passion. After being licensed in January 2014, I opened my private practice specializing in post-surgery, chronic pain, scars, burns, breast cancer, and any medical massage I could be trained in.

I met Anita Shannon at a trade show and began immediately taking continuing education courses with ACE.  After going through Levels 1 & 2, breast health intensive with Anita J. Shannon, and Lymph/cupping with Beth-Ellen Zang, and following Anita to classes and trade shows, Anita gave me the opportunity to teach. I look forward to inspiring and helping therapists grow in cupping therapies.
