I was born and raised in and around the Pacific Northwest. A career choice took me to Los Angeles where I worked in the Entertainment Industry for many years.
I returned to the Pacific Northwest when my mother was diagnosed with cancer. It was a gift to be able to give love; care and support back to the woman who raised me. Sadly, her battle was a very short one. My experience with her treatment left me wanting to serve this population. I enrolled in the Massage Program at University of Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon, with the intent of specializing in Oncology Massage. My training included various massage modalities along with the required science. In addition, I was privileged to participate in an internship offered by Northwest Cancer Specialists in Portland. I have also had the honor to study with the miraculous Gayle MacDonald.
I joined the integrative care team at Providence Regional Cancer System in 2011 as an independent contractor. It is a gift to bring gentle comfort through massage to people in treatment for cancer. I feel very blessed indeed.
