About Me

(One day I might take a new photo, but for now just imagine me seven years older)

When I was in high school and college I was one of those kids that worked too hard, and with that came nasty tension headaches. My pediatrician suggested I try therapeutic massage. It helped me so much I decided to become a massage therapist!

After graduating from University of Rochester in 2004, I enrolled in massage school in my hometown of Washington DC. A year later I decided NYC was better, and I moved to Astoria in 2005. In 2007 I got my license to massage, and have been doing that as my full-time job since 2008.

I have always been interested in working with people with pain, and I started out at a couple of those massage/physical therapy mills in Manhattan before opening my private practice in 2011. I also dabbled in some sports massage, including working for the Women’s Tennis Association at the US Open from 2009 to 2012, where I had the opportunity to work on some of the world’s top tennis players.

A lower back injury in 2012 drove me to learn more about how pain actually works, which had an impact on my technique- less “meat tenderizer” and more thinking about how the nervous system and musculoskeletal system work together.

When not massaging, I’m a part-time stay at home mom who occasionally gets to enjoy knitting and embroidery, watching my 2018 Stanley Cup Champion Washington Capitals, and reading.
