I grew up in northeastern Ohio and received my Bachelor of Arts degree from Kent State University.  I had a career in public and private, non-profit social services before becoming certified in therapeutic massage at Desert Institute of the Healing Arts in Tucson, Arizona. My 30+-year practice focused on elders, women during the childbirth year, and people in treatment for cancer, using integrated Swedish, craniosacral, and reflexology techniques. 


I have been a bodywork instructor for more than twenty years, in entry-level massage training programs and at Pima Community College in Tucson, as well as an Approved CE Provider. I have been a frequent presenter at AMTA National Conventions and Schools Summits, at the AFMTE Educational Congress, and was named 2016 Educator of the Year by the Alliance for Massage Therapy Education.


I am the author of Touch & Movement: Palpation and Kinesiology for Massage Therapists and numerous journal articles, and am the creator of TxPlanner (Treatment Planner), a free, mobile pathology website for bodyworkers, clinics and schools available at www.txplanner.org.
