Owner, Certified Advanced Rolfer™ 

I received my original massage training from the Carolina School of Massage Therapy in 1992.  In 2002, after ten years of providing the deep tissue massage techniques my clients craved, the repetitive wear and tear were taking a toll on my wrists, elbows, and shoulders.  I was desperate for an alternative modality and pursued ashiatsu barefoot massage training.


Barefoot massage saved my career and empowered me to begin Rolfing® SI training in 2005. I also started teaching Ashiatsu barefoot to massage therapists. In May 2018 I completed my Advanced certification in Rolfing® SI and, I continue to develop my myofascial barefoot skills. While I no longer offer massage sessions, I continue to personally train the Bull City Soles team in Ashiatsu barefoot massage and instruct other massage therapists under the umbrella of The Center for Barefoot Massage. It's been a remarkable journey!

I live locally here in Durham. I'm married to a full-time NC Army National Guardsman, with a daughter in college, a son currently serving in the U.S. Army, and two dachshunds. To say the least, I stay busy! In my rare off time, I enjoy cooking, reading, paddle boarding, gardening, decorating, and creating beautiful and functional spaces.
