About

Touch was never meant to be a luxury. It is a basic human need. It is an action that validates life and gives hope to both the receiver and the giver. The healing of touch is reciprocal.”
–Irene Smith

Welcome to my sandbox where I indulge in my creative pursuits.  If I were Jello, I’d be in that stage where the thin liquid is a thick liquid that traps anything you drop in.  Soon, I’ll be solidified but flexible.  With marshmallows.

I am a  graduate of the Cortiva Institute – Chicago School of Massage Therapy.  I specialize in Oncology and Geriatric massage and also hold a certification in Manual Lymphatic Drainage.  I have worked in clinical settings and have experience adapting massage for clients undergoing cancer treatment and other medical challenges.  In addition, as a longtime runner, I enjoy providing therapeutic massage to help people maintain their optimum wellness and fitness.  I teach massage therapy in several different venues, and I write about it here.  I also maintain a private practice in Louisville, Kentucky.

My best work is done without words.  Contact me or check my online schedule to book an appointment.
