My life journey in healthcare began in the early 1980’s at Sacred Heart Medical Center. From CNA to Registered Nurse, I worked many units but particularly the Intensive Care Unit. I enjoyed the focused care and patient advocacy. In 1999, I completed my Licensure for Massage Therapy and began my medically based private practice. Healing Spirit Body Therapies LLC was opened in October 2003 to provide a space to bridge Western and Eastern medicine modalities encompassing mind-body-spirit.
As we out grew our location in 2010, I moved Healing Spirit into its present location and additional practitioners were included. Then in the winter of 2012, I became aware of the much needed treatment requirements for patients with Lymphedema. I explored my educational options and found Norton School of Lymphatic Therapy. Teaching the golden standard in care and upholding the highest level of treatment. I immediately enrolled and began my Lymphatic System journey. I became a Certified Lymphedema Therapy in May 2012. I provide CDT- Complete Decongestive Therapy, the standard of care for people with primary and secondary lymphedema. I am passionate to provide exceptional care for my patients and to continue my nursing education, becoming a Family Nurse Practitioner specializing in Lymphedema.
Jan 2013 with the addition of Primary Care services, we became Healing Spirit Integrative Health Center. I am excited to offer our community a full range of services that enhance their health and provide an integrative approach to healing.
Blessings on your path,
