WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I've been with Duke since 1999. I’m so grateful to be able to partner with my clients to create a session of bodywork that brings them relief from discomfort and empowers them to continue that self care at home. I've had the good fortune to study with some of the best instructors in massage, medical massage and oncology massage in the U.S. My clients come for a variety of medical concerns and pains from daily life. I get particular joy from sessions in which we can solve a long-standing pain issue. I am a member of the National American Massage Therapy Association -AMTA and AMTA-NC, am Nationally Board Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork and have served and am currently serving on the State Board of Massage and Bodywork Therapy. When I'm not in the massage room, I enjoy woodworking and gardening.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

I was grateful to be the lead massage therapist on a four year National Institutes of Health research study on osteoarthritis of the knee and massage. We were able to develop a protocol for treatment that left clients feeling less pain, able to walk longer distances and experiencing greater range of motion. I also worked on research looking at quality of life in patients with brain tumors getting massage. As a member of the American Massage Therapy Association, I'm able to stay current on the latest research in massage.
