Years in Practice



State License/Certificate: TX MT110566


In 1994, I completed a 600-hour Massage Therapy Program at The Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy (CCMT). Having felt all that comes with pain and injury, it didn't take long for my interest in working with the muscular system to become my passion. From 2003 to 2009, I worked as an applied biomechanics consultant at ESPN. After a few years of serving as a consultant, my primary role evolved to working with sports- and work-related injuries at ESPN. In 2014, Runner's World UK quoted me in an article that questioned the value of stretching. Over the last few years, I have been quoted in Massage Therapy and Bodywork, Massage Magazine, IDEA Fitness Journal, Massage and Fitness Magazine, and The Guardian Liberty Voice. I have also served as an applied biomechanics consultant at Canyon Ranch and The Greenbrier. Throughout the first 18 years of my career, I was a nationally certified personal trainer. During that time, I completed thousands of one-on-one personal training sessions. I went on to teach the biomechanics of exercise to personal trainers and group exercise instructors throughout New England. Before relocating to Dallas in 2009, I taught advanced kinesiology of the lower extremity at The Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy. From 2009 to 2018, I had the great pleasure of teaching applied anatomy and kinesiology at Parker University in Dallas. It's been over 26 years since I first held a license to perform sports massage therapy.
