Get to Know Me

My name is Linda. I’m married to a high school teacher and was born and raised in Washington state. I never knew what I wanted to be when I “grew up” so I went to massage school because it sounded interesting.  This was a very impulsive decision on my part because at this point I had literally only had one professional massage!  Fun fact: after I graduated in 2010, I initially hated being a massage therapist!  While a little dramatic, it’s true.  I was young and lacking life experience so I didn’t think I was capable of truly helping people. But, I stuck with it, learned as much as I could and now here I am over a decade later! In 2020 I became a certified yoga teacher and now I get to combine my love of massage and yoga to help bring integrated wellness into the lives of my clients!
