I graduated from Washington University (St. Louis, MO) School of Medicine with a B.S. in Physical Therapy in 1974. I have worked as a Physical Therapist treating all ages of patients in a variety of settings. In 1996 I began to specialize in women's health treatment with post-graduate training in Pelvic Floor Dysfunction and the Management of Lymphedema.
I took my first John F. Barnes Myofascial Release (MFR) seminar in 2000. It was there that I recognized MFR to be one of the most effective forms of manual therapy leading to authentic healing. Since then my Physical Therapy practice has focused on providing John F. Barnes Myofascial Release therapy. John F. Barnes seminars, along with providing and receiving MFR treatments, have given me first-hand experience of enhanced health through this life changing body work.
I am now recognized as an Expert John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Therapist. I am also locally recognized for my expertise in MFR treatment of pelvic pain issues. I also serve as an Instructor for John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Seminars.
I owned and operated a very successful specialized MFR clinic in Omaha, NE. Since moving to Fair Oaks, CA in 2014, I have established my local specialized MFR clinic to serve clients in Sacramento County and the surround area.
Personally, I have noticed amazing effects on my body and life thanks to John F. Barnes and his Myofascial Release treatment approach. I feel 10 years younger than I did 15 years ago. MFR has been like reverse aging for my body. My changed physical comfort and flexibility have lead to renewed enjoyment of physical activities. I enjoy bicycling with my husband along The American River Bike Trail and mountain biking and cross-country skiing in the Tahoe area. My husband and I also enjoy traveling and spending time with family, including our 3 children and their families.
