I’ve known from a young age that I wanted to be involved in the health and wellness field.  I spent my school years playing baseball and basketball, and when I got to college I decided to focus on helping others with their sport careers.  I worked with the school football team while studying sports medicine, and eventually graduated from Illinois State with a bachelor’s in physical education.  After a couple of years teaching in the public school system I decided to go to school for massage.  I’ve worked as a massage therapist for the last 8 years and got my personal trainers license 2 years ago.  I love movement and have focused on corrective work, getting certified as a corrective exercise specialist through NASM and certified in FMS.  Finding Iron Orchid has felt like a long journey, but I can’t think of a more perfect fit for me!
