   It is such a gift to be able to live your dream. Turning Leaf Massage is the product of a dream that was born shortly after my graduation from the Clinic Massage Institute of Geneseo in 1997. My life has always centered around health, healing and re-discovery.


   I spent 15 years working in labor and delivery  and I am an experienced  "birthing coach" or doula. I opened Turning Leaf in 2010.  It is my passion to help people discover the relaxation and restoration that massage can provide.  I have a particular interest in providing massages for couples, a process that can help couples build stronger bonds in their relationships by rekindling the spark that first brought them together.

   I believe much of our stress today stems from our lack of time and space for reflection and relaxation. The world has become far too busy, and today’s frenetic pace has taken a toll on us mentally, physically and relationally. Relationships need time and space together to breathe, grow and thrive. I have created a tranquil atmosphere in my studio where people can come in and leave their cares at the door. They leave here relaxed, centered and more ready to tackle whatever challenges they may face. Let Turning Leaf Massage be your first step towards discovering a more relaxed, restored and invigorated YOU!

Since graduating from Cortiva - Chicago School of Massage Therapy in 2009, I've worked in various spas and chiropractic offices. Between 2015-2017, I served as an instructor at Cortiva, teaching massage, anatomy and kinesiology. All these experiences have shaped me into the therapist I am today.

My massage is specifically designed to meet the needs of each individual client.  Using various modalities including, Swedish, deep tissue, prenatal, myofascial, trigger and tender point techniques, I work with my clients to reach their massage goals. Whether your goal is relaxation or managing chronic or acute pain, we'll work together to get you feeling better.

I'm very excited to be at Turning Leaf Massage and I look forward to working with you.
