I started providing massage therapy in 1998 in the twin cities area. I attended Sister Rosalind's School of Professional Massage in St. Paul, MN. I was an active member of the Minnesota Sports Massage Team, traveling to events through out the state.
I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology. In 2001 I became a certified athletic trainer and am currently licensed in the state of Wyoming. I moved to Wyoming where I provided athletic training services at the high school level. In 2006 I volunteered two weeks at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO. I worked with the national inline speed skating team, women's junior national volleyball team, women's A2 volleyball team and the men's A2 volleyball team. I have also worked at the Minnesota State Games and the State Games of America (Colorado Springs, CO).
I also hold a Master's degree from the California University of Pennsylvania in Exercise Science with an emphasis on performance enhancement and injury prevention. I have worked with the Excel performance enhancement program in Gillette, WY. I currently am certified as a personal trainer and a performance enhancement specialist through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and provide these services at the Campbell County Rec Center.
In 2006, I moved to Columbia Falls, MT, where I was the head athletic trainer for Flathead High School during the 2006-07 school year. The following year I initiated the athletic training program for Glacier High School.
Currently, I have returned to Gillette, Wyoming to open Active Spirit ~Massage & Sports Medicine. It is my pleasure to promote health and wellness.
