I am a professional member of the Registered Massage Therapy Association of Ontario (RMTAO) and registered with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO). I have a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from the University of Toronto. I am certified as a Manual Lymph Drainage and Combined Decongestive Therapist with the Dr. Vodder School International and I utilize this specialty in my massage therapy practice and when I volunteered at Hearth Place Cancer Support Centre in Oshawa. In addition, I am certified as an Advanced Myofascial Release Therapist and Structural Integration Therapist with the Jenings Training and Treatment Centre.
For 23 years, I provided behavioural consultation for individuals with developmental disabilities and acquired brain injuries. During my employment with York Central Hospital’s Behaviour Management Services, I served as a workshop instructor where I organized and developed educational workshops and wrote multiple training manuals. In addition, I regularly facilitated behaviour based therapy sessions with my clients.
My lifelong passion for massage therapy fueled my decision to become a Registered Massage Therapist. I graduated at the top of my massage therapy class with first class honours at Trillium College in Oshawa. I have always enjoyed learning and I continually challenge myself to have a broad knowledge base that meets the needs of my clients in order to provide compassionate, high quality client care.
