I have been a practicing, licensed massage therapist since 2003. The path which led me to study massage therapy started years ago, while I tended to my mother's needs following an accident that left her temporarily incapacitated.

While washing her back one afternoon, I could see the pleasure on her face and felt the relief and comfort she was experiencing. My mother had been a widow for 30 years and I realized in that moment, 'Oh, my God, this woman hasn't been touched in all these years. How can that be?'

Years later, shortly before she died from complications from Alzheimer's disease, I was able to give her a massage by candlelight in my sister's home on the lake, with the window sheers billowing back and forth from the breeze off the water. My gift to her...and a precious one for me.

I began my practice with a chiropractor, which was the best thing I could have done. It afforded me the opportunity to work on people with specific conditions and injuries that I may not have come across otherwise. It gave me a "medical" foundation and I focused on massage as a treatment.

After learning the basics, I was able to expand and became interested in complementary applications, such as hot stones, hydrotherapy, aromatherapy, Shiatsu and "Bowen" therapy.

Bowen therapy is an alternative to massage therapy and focuses on the acupuncture points. It is noninvasive and can actually be done through light clothing. For more information, click here.

My interest in the "Spa Experience" came after working with aestheticians. I realized the need and desire of my clientele to receive a massage and skin treatment at the same time...and Spa Bella was born.

My love for skin goes way back. When I was young, my mother tricked me into thinking that I might have an allergy to the sun. Thus, the Sunblock Nazi, as my children lovingly call me, was born. I am married, with three children, Travis, Brennan and Landis. My husband Mark is my second chance at love.

My career got its start when I worked at Clarins USA for nine years. I then went to school and mirrored under the aesthetician to the stars, Bella Schneider, in Los Angeles, and then began working in medical aesthetics with gynecologists and dermatologists.

I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Gerontology from NLU, and my Aesthetics
certification from Rainer Institute in Los Angeles.

I am deeply passionate about my career and spend many hours learning more about my industry and staying up to speed on everything new. I make my clients feel at home and treat them like a friend. I never try to intimidate anyone and I am always open to suggestions.

Let me be your friend and expert when it comes to your skin. Let me put my 15 years of experience to work for you!

I have been interested in natural and holistic approaches to health for a number of years. It began when my sister was diagnosed with cancer and had to undergo surgery and treatments. About a year later, she found a doctor who, by using natural treatments--such as drastically changing her diet, adding many herbs, supplements and stress reduction techniques--helped her cancer go into remission.

I began reading books on herbs, vitamins, stress reduction and natural remedies;
I even considered studying massage therapy at the time, but allowed others to talk me out of it. It seemed I was only interested in reading about it all. It wasn't until just a few years ago that I began to take the information personally...and apply it to myself and my life.

After 21 years of marriage, my husband and I separated and I became a single mother. Due to internalizing stress for many years, I began experiencing signs of adrenal failure and very painful symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis (which runs in my family). I reached a point where I couldn't lift a gallon of water, open a jar, or do many other daily tasks without experiencing extreme pain. I had no idea how I was going to support myself—things got decidedly worse for a while!

Then, one day, while very near the end of my rope, I read an article on how to be happy in life by making your passion your career. At first I thought, “Yeah, right!” Then I wondered what my passion was, and actually had to stop and think about it. I looked over at my bookshelf of my many books on natural health, and realized that the interest was there, but I hadn't really “lived” it or allowed it to be my passion.

So I got all of my books down and began researching. I took notes, cross-referenced, re-read and took more notes. But most importantly, I began applying what I'd read to myself and my situation. I changed my diet, my habits and my life! I began paying attention to food labels and what I was eating, I started taking more vitamins and I frequently went on walks. Before too long, I was able to return to school, this time following my dream to study massage therapy. It has been one of the best things I have ever done for myself!

I have been a licensed massage therapist for five years. I'm originally from Fort Walton Beach, Florida, but I have lived in the area for three years. I don't remember exactly what age I was when I first became interested in alternative medicine, but for as long as I can remember it has fascinated me. My mother shared this interest with me and always supported my decision to pursue it, by acquiring books about Chinese medicine and home remedies.

I made the decision to become a massage therapist when I was eighteen years old and started school as soon as I graduated from high school. I am grateful that I am able to help people with their pain in a natural way, and I hope to continue with my career in massage therapy for a very long time.
