In Oct 2004 I went to a chiropractor for chronic headaches and low back pain. I was prescribed massage therapy.  Never having massage before, I did not know what to expect.  In a chiropractic setting you get “deep tissue” massage.  It was painful at times, but a good pain and I knew immediately that this is what I wanted to do.  So, by Thanksgiving week I was enrolled at Oklahoma Health Academy.  After 7½ months of some of the most intensive and comprehensive training I graduated top of my class.

The state of Oklahoma requires 500 hours of training and licensing in the city/town a therapist works in.  I received 780 hours of training and also received “National Certification for Therapeutic Massage”in Oct of 2005.  National Certification is not required in Oklahoma, but I want to continue my education and excel in my work.

Part of my education in massage therapy was doing an internship/externship which included 120 hours of hands on training as well as observation of the many facets of chiropractic care.  I decided early on in my training to work in the chiropractic field as well as build my own practice on the side.  I did my internship at the school’s clinic and my externship at Ochsner Chiropractic Centre. I worked at Ochsner Chiropractic Centre from Oct 2005 - Oct 2017 and Huskey Chiropractic Centre from Mar 2006 - Jul 2015 and had my own studio from Jan 2005 - Oct 2017.  I now have my own studio here in Brunswick, ME.
