I am a NYS licensed Massage Therapist and a graduate of the Trocaire College Medical Massage program. In my two years of study at Trocaire, I earned an Associates in Applied Sciences and Massage Therapy Certification. As a student, I interned at Depew Health Center and Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
In my private practice at the HEAT Center, I specialize in Medical/ Therapeutic Massage, Pregnancy Massage and Postpartum Massage Therapy. I am also proud to provide Birth Doula Services and Infant Massage Education for Parents and Caregivers.
Prior to becoming an LMT, I was an Early Childhood Educator at the University of Buffalo Child Care Center. I had the pleasure of watching families grow as well as supporting parents through their child's growth and development, from the ages of 6 weeks to 5 years. My ten-year experience at UB Child Care Center gave me a unique perspective insight regarding child development, teaching, patience and collaboration with parents and co-workers.
When I decided to go to massage school I had no idea where this new career would take me. It wasn't until two years into my massage practice that a client of mine became pregnant with her first child and asked me to attend her birth. She said, "No one relaxes me the way you do and you could massage me while I'm in labor." I agreed and was there for the birth of her son eight months later. This experience was life-changing and I decided that day I could offer labor support for the rest of my life—this was the beginning of my Doula career.
Since attending this first birth in October of 2012, I have acquired Doula training as well as specialized training in Pregnancy and Postpartum Massage Therapies and have received certification as an Infant Massage Educator.
I am very thankful and blessed to be in a position where I can continue to support women, parents and children. I truly love what I do and will actively continue to educate myself in order to better serve my community through massage therapy, education and birth support services.
