Sharing What We Have Been Saying so Long to so Many
I am a holistic nurse and certified massage therapist. My professional experiences include a diverse and interesting career as a registered nurse, wellness administration for hospitals and private practice and presentation of a variety of wellness programs for business and the community. My B.S. is in Nursing and my M.A. is in Wellness Administration.
I am co-owner with Patsi Gately of the Massage Therapy & Wellness Center (established in 1997 in Michigan City, IN). I use my experience and skills as a massage therapist to address the challenging effects of stress and pain. My focus is treatment of pain of the neck, shoulder, back, hip and other areas of the body that may be caused by stress, injury or overuse.
It gives me great satisfaction when clients tell me they were able to go back to work, resume a sport or pick up a grandchild because of my work.
I have a lifelong fascination with the body and how it functions. I feel that all of what I have done professionally has been great preparation for what I am doing now. My goal – and that of our center – is to help people keep going.
For fun, I enjoy outdoor activities, taking pictures (note: I did not say photography!), participating in improvisation classes and having a good time with family and friends.
