About Me

 I have always felt that prescription medication is frequently over prescribed for pain treatment or people just don't want to use the highly addictive drugs to manage their pain.  There are other options that not only help with musculo-skeletal pain, but also help correct the issues that are causing the pain.

    My education began at the University of Kansas on a physical therapy route.  After I completed my education, I was led into Athletic Training and Sports Medicine.   While treating an athlete with a contracted neck muscle, I was advised to “go to massage school” because, "everyone wants massage done and we don’t have enough time to massage everyone". I didn’t believe in masking pain with prescription medication because the pain is a sign of a problem.  So I enrolled in massage school, but not until after I had completed my Master’s degree in the School of Education studying Sports Administration and the Psychological Effects of Injury.

     It was during this period that I sought out a massage school that encompassed all of the areas I was interested in.  I found the North Eastern Institute of Whole Health located in Manchester, NH and attended September 2005-November 2006.  It was there that I met Dr. Beckley in my Anatomy and Physiology class.  He is an excellent teacher and I was an excellent student.   With a devoted work ethic, he invited me to be his assistant.  While helping him achieve his goals, he is allowing me to reach my own by working out of his office.

      In the past, I have volunteered at the Extreme Home Makeover site in Manchester, NH.  It was a great experience being able to help the volunteers relieve some of the tight muscles and headaches caused by the tension associated with working hard and continuously for days.  I also travel throughout New England and work backstage for different events.  Some tours that I have worked are The Blue Man Group, American Idol Tour, Seal, Pat Benatar, REO Speedwagon, KC and the Sunshine Band, Mudvayne, and TSO.

     In 2009, I received the Derry/Londonderry Young Careerist  Award and was runner up at the state competition.  I also appreciated being nominated for NH’s 40 Under 40 competition.  This year I was awarded the Schaeffer Memorial Scholarship Award from a Foundation for Enhancing Communities.

     I enjoy donating to charitable events and fundraisers.  I support the Upper Room, the YWCA Women’s Crisis Center, the Derry Senior Center, the Derry Rotary, BPW, and the MPWA Scholarship Fund.   

    My free time is spent with my seven year old Pug-Beagle (Puggle), Spencer.  We love spending time on the water either on a Sea-Doo or boating with his uncle Buddy (below).  Also, we love playing outdoors whether its in the woods or on a sports field.  My other favorite hobby is photography.  I am a University of Kansas alumni and supporter of Kansas Athletics. 

My office hours are currently by appointment only.
