My background of caring for people started a long time ago in my home state of Virginia. Yes, you’ll hear it in my drawl! I worked in several doctors’ offices as a medical assistant where I discovered I love caring for people. I became a paramedic and spent 20 years working as both a fire fighter and paramedic in Virginia. I then spent 4 years working as a paramedic and Project Manager in Afghanistan caring for the healthcare needs of the brave men and women who serve our country.

In 2013 my husband Michael was accepted to medical school and we moved to the beautiful island of Saint Lucia where we spent two years. For some time, my interest in caring for people had been moving away from the fast pace of  Emergency Services to a calmer, more holistic approach. Rather than sit on a beach for 2 years I decided to go to massage therapy school in St Lucia. I know, sounds crazy right!

Since moving back to the states I have worked closely with Chiropractors, Naturopaths,  Physical Therapists and Sports Trainers. I spent a year in Chicago working in a Physical Medicine and Rehab clinic, obtaining specialized training and certification along with  experience in prenatal massage and other modalities. Medical school took us to Montana where my husband grew up and while there I started Back2Basics Holistic Health.  I am licensed in both Illinois and Montana, a certified Prenatal Massage Therapist,  a member of the American Massage Therapy Association and am currently a student of Everglades University working on my  Alternative Medicine degree. 

Now back in Illinois while Michael works as a Family Practice Resident at University of Illinois College of Medicine/Dixon KSB I am offering  services in many types of massage and holistic therapies by appointment.

My goal is not just to help you relax or to “rub out those sore spots”. My goal is to help you have the best life possible by helping you find your healthiest self. To find not just relief of pain or soreness but healing from the physical, mental and emotional stresses in your life. In short, to get back to the basics of what is most important. Your health!

I am excited to bring my ever growing knowledge and experience to you and to help you find the balance of your best health so you can live your best life!

Back2Basics Holistic Health; helping you find your healthiest, happiest you!

I can’t wait to meet you!
