Vitality Beyond  Skin 

Therapeutic Massage and Skin Care

About Me


Native to this area, I have been a practicing Massage Therapist since graduating in 1996 from Lakeside School Of Natural Therapeutics. I found great reward in helping others to feel and function at an optimal level. This changed my direction in college from a business focus to that of helping people rehab their bodies and get the most from their lives. I furthered my education taking many different courses to increase my knowledge in manual therapy. To gain a more in depth understanding of kinesiology and the body's mechanical functions, I went back to school to become a Physical Therapist Assistant. I graduated in 2002 from Milwaukee Area Technical College. In my time as a PTA,  I have specialized in both inpatient and outpatient settings, working with a vast variety of injury and medical related issues.

Growing up fascinated by all the skin care products and cosmetics, I became eager to learn more. This brought about a love for skin care going into adulthood.  Realizing that skin health is a byproduct of your lifestyle, and good skin health increases a persons confidence and well being,  I attended The Aveda Institute of Beauty and Wellness in 2013 obtaining my Aesthetic license and decided to further my education. 

I graduated from Waukesha County Technical College in 2020 with an associates degree in Master Aesthetics.

I am always looking forward to learning new techniques and discovering better ways to bring my passions to life and to help the lives of others
