At 17, I suffered from debilitating shin splints that lasted over 5 years. I tried many forms of health care without relief. I then heard about Aston-Patterning®, and I could walk with very minimal pain immediately after my first session. This not only saved my life as a teenager, it reshaped how I looked at life.
This experience lead me to a Bachelor’s degree in Health Ecology from the University of Nevada, Reno. The human body is fascinating in its complexity and I am always searching for more and new information. As a Certified Aston-Patterning® practitioner, I am able to put my knowledge to practice as a bodywork and movement specialist. I am currently enrolled as the first cohort to go through the Masters in Kinesiology at UNR, with an emphasis in biomechanics. Education, and exploration are a continued passion.
As an athlete I know how disheartening it can be to not perform your best due to injuries or limitations. Aston-Patterning® helped me to regain my confidence and strength after 4 knee surgeries.
I feel at home when I am camping and in nature. I spend my free time knitting, cooking and taking trips to Lake Tahoe. I enjoy solving problems and figuring out how things work which is why I tend to have many hobbies. I like to create and invent new ways of doing things that strengthens my abilities to become flexible and creative during my sessions with clients.
