I first attended massage school in Santa fe, nm, in 1990.  I graduated from there with 750 hours of class time and clinic time.  I returned to juneau, where i worked for the wonderful lillian ruedrich at body harmonics...i am lucky enough to still have a few folks from those early years! 

I attended Heartwood institute and studied polarity therapy with Bruce Burger.
I am a Reiki master in three systems.

I have massage cupping certifications I and II.

i have since worked around the world and learned several more modalities.  I love it just as much now as i ever did, and still try to learn something new in every session.  I love it that after 20 years, i am not bored or feel like i have mastered the thing!  

I have been a member of the AMTA for many years. I was licenced in alaska the year licensing passed into law. 
I passed the national certification exam several years ago.
