Bodywork Therapist

My passion for health, nutrition, and movements stems from growing up as an athlete since the age of five. I grew up as a competitive cheerleader which led me to cheer for The University of South Carolina. Being in a competitive, goal-driven environment has shaped my character from a young age. When cheerleading at USC came to an end, I fell into the sport of CrossFit in 2012. I dove in head first and started training and competing at a local, then regional level. I enjoyed competitions with CrossFit for nearly six years, which is where I was first introduced to Bodywork and was amazing at how it aided my performance in the CrossFit world.

After graduating college from The University of South Carolina, I worked full time with Lululemon with aspirations of living on the West Coast. An opportunity arose with Lululemon to live in San Diego, CA and I boldly took it. Lululemon opened up a world of personal responsibility, leadership, and choice. This aided me in the transition to California, where I was faced with great challenges both mentally and physically that continued to bring me back to my body and explore within. I knew my career with Lululemon was coming to an end. My gut said, “there’s more.” I began to listen more intentionally for next steps and guidance. Throughout the next year and a half, Massage and Body Work school kept coming to mind. In November of 2020, circumstances brought me back to my hometown, Charlotte, NC where I enrolled at the North Carolina School of Advanced Body Work. Both during school and now in my own private practice, I am continually intrigued by how emotions, trauma, and pain are interconnected. My journey of self discovery continues as I have the privilege of helping people along their own healing journeys. This is where my additional trainings come into play: Cranio-Sacral Therapy, neuromuscular therapy and myofascial release work.

My purpose: To help people truly heal from the inside out. I am a facilitator to unlock what is already within. I am a strong believer in the body’s capacity to hold and store emotions and/or trauma and how that manifests as pain. I facilitate to help one heal, move emotion, and live a more clear, and pain free life. I use my strengths and passion for listening, coaching, and manual therapy to connect and heal.
