With a background in Human Services, Massage Therapy and my passion for Natural Living, I want to share my knowledge and experiences while connecting with others of like mind.
I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and immigrated to the US in 1992. My family has resided in the Greenville, SC area since. In 2005, I graduated from Elon University with my bachelors degree in Human Services. After college, I never really found a job in the Human Services field that called to me. I’ve always loved helping people and knew that I would have a job doing so.
My history with massage therapy started in 2005 when I started training for my first marathon. Weekly massages helped me recuperate from those long runs and kept my muscles loose for the next one. I was able to complete my first marathon in October, 2005 and went on to do a half-Ironman in May, 2006. It wasn’t the marathon or the half-Ironman that gave me a sense of accomplishment. It was my first triathlon that I completed in my Sophomore year of college that helped me realize that I could do anything I set my mind to. Since then, my training motto has been “What the mind can conceive, the body can achieve”.
I graduated from the Greenville Tech massage program in 2007 and have been practicing massage therapy in Greenville ever since then. After graduating from the program, I have found my niche doing fertility and pre-natal massages. My practice isn’t limited to those two modalities. I still continue to work on my athletes and every day people with aches and pains. I love what I do and am grateful for my clients. Each client is unique and I enjoy working with them.
In 2010 I gave birth to a beautiful, energetic little boy. Researching my options for child birth classes and choosing our care provider helped change my entire outlook on birth. Having our son truly was a life changing event in many ways. I’m eternally grateful for meeting all the wonderful people along the way. We welcomed our lovely daughter in the Spring of 2013 and now our family feels complete. We enjoy watching them learn and grow.
I completed my doula training in 2014 and attended a handful of births by the end of December 2014. I left each birth learning something new and added a few new tools to my mental tool box. Attending births is very rewarding and I appreciate my clients trusting me to be there during the most important day of their child’s life. I empower my clients with information so they can make the best decisions for their baby’s birth. It truly is the most important day of their lives. I look forward to serving many more couples in the coming years.
