Licensed Massage Therapists

I grew up locally in East Cobb.  After graduating from George Walton Comprehensive High School, I attended Lincoln Tech in Atlanta to study Massage Therapy in 2009.

In 2016,  I married my wonderful husband, David. Together, we have seven beautiful children.

I enjoy working in the medical and fitness industry.  I have worked with doctors and trainers to provide the best possible care for my clients.  I am well practiced in orthopedic deep tissue massage, neuromuscular massage, prenatal, and myofascial release.  Whether you’re suffering from a medical issue, car accident, sports injury, or simply need some rest and relaxation, you are in experienced hands with me!  I cant wait to meet you and start your journey for a healthier life!
