My interest and passion in holistic healing stems from a deep-rooted desire to achieve a healthy and well self, a value that was instilled through my own healing journey. I turned these passions into profession, seeking a career that could uphold my core values. I was called to massage therapy and instantly discovered my purpose. By 2006, I began practicing massage therapy after studying massage at the Maui School of Therapeutic Massage and the Thai Massage School of Chiang Mai, becoming licensed in the state of Hawaii.
A native of a naturally colder climate, I returned to Minnesota in 2008 to pursue a career as a Licensed Massage Therapist in the Twin Cities metro area as well as complete an Associates of Science Degree in Integrative Health and Healing. This education provided me with a strong background in the many facets of alternative medicine including energy healing, which has allowed me to grow on both a personal and professional level. Then with my passion for helping women and love of infants I became an Infant Massage Instructor, trained doula, and birthing coach. In 2012, honu therapeutic massage came to life. Since then I have expanded my passions and become a certified BodyMind Coaching, helping my clients become more present in their bodies on a deeper level than just massage, so they can make healthier choices in their lives.
I hope to spread my knowledge and practice of BodyMind coaching, massage and integrative healing through the evolution of honu, a business dedicated to and focused on helping people live healthier and happier lives.
When I am not at honu you will find me enjoying nature and spending time with my husband and puppy.
