massage practice is focused on injury treatment
with a concentration treating chronic pain
and structural issues. I like to create an
atmosphere in which you can totally relax
or get treatment for your ailments.
prior employment includes extensive experience in
Customer Service Management in multiple industries,
receiving many service awards dealing with the public
and private sectors. I left the high tech industry
where I was working with fortune 100 companies as
a project manager before starting massage school.
I grew up in Maine and skied my way through Business
School in Bangor. I moved around with the Hotel
Industry, Waterville Valley, NH, Hartford, CT, New
Orleans, LA, and I have been in Seattle since 1996.
I worked with 3 failed "start ups" during
the Tech Boom and met many great people. It was
a great ride while it lasted, but decided to help
others with touch. I like to ride my Motorcycle
(Suzuki Bandit 1200) and bicycle (Mongoose 850 Hybrid).
I live in West Seattle with my Life Partner, 2 Saint
Bernards, and 2 Ferrets.
