Atlantic Massage
Massage ~ Yoga ~ Fitness Coaching


My Story...

I am a native of upstate New York but have called the Outer Banks home since 2007 with my two sons and our family dog. I have been a Licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist in the state of North Carolina since 2014. However, I have been studying and working in health and wellness for nearly 30 yrs with multiple degrees, certifications, and varied experience, along with being a competitive athlete most of my life. I have uniquely integrated my varied background/education/experiences into comprehensive bodywork services, often blending a therapeutic mix of personal fitness coaching together with yoga and massage therapies. 

I have a private fitness area within my massage studio that is very conducive to individualized personal training, especially for those new to just starting a fitness routine. This setting and my approach to fitness coaching could be considered the alternative to fitness bootcamps/cross fit/corporate gym settings.

Additionally, I offer essential oils as part of my growing service line with Atlantic Massage, and I am currently enrolled in a level 1 aromatherapy certification course. Since becoming a licensed massage therapist several years ago, I have used many essential oils myself and with my clients, but it wasn't until trying doTERRA products that I knew their essential oils were of the highest quality and would be the best for my clients and my family. Though not required, I am pursuing a certification in aromatherapy to further advance my knowledge to ensure I am best able to guide others on the efficacy and safety of essential oil use, and best recommend which oils are most suited for them.

I am a strong supporter of various veterans programs (Mission22, We Defy Foundation, veterans writing project, collecting & delivering clothing/supplies for homeless vets, etc.). As a military member myself in the Air Force Reserve, busy mother, and athlete, I have personally found much balance through regular bodywork, yoga therapy, and essential oil use myself, and it is my intention to help others find balance in their lives through such services I offer, with the goal to optimize their overall health and well-being.
