"After more than twenty years as an elementary school teacher, it was time for a career change. My love of yoga and healing led me to massage therapy. At the Institute of Natural Therapies I gained a solid foundation in massage therapy and confidence in my ability to be present for my clients. INT prepared me to easily pass the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Body Work. I now specialize in Pre-and Perinatal Massage. I am a birth doula and the founder of the Peaceful Birth Project. Working with pregnant women gives me joy and satisfaction as I know that I make a difference in the lives of the babies. I believe that pregnancy massage is the best preparation for birthing baby. "
