We are planning on welcoming additional wellness businesses to RISE with us -
if you can envision your practice here, please let us know!
Each of us honors our ancient and now deeper need for human connection, emotional balance, safety and collective joy, and we are deeply honored and humbled to be here - rising to meet this need. We are moving forward into a new season, in new ways, in our new world, amidst a pandemic. Like many others, we are trying, stretching, leading, evolving, learning, breaking, mending, healing and hoping. As we work out many details so you can learn more about each of us, including our web and social media presence, we thank you for your patience, your understanding and your support.
Community Mama - Loyal Leader - Wellness Warrior
From New England to Colorado and back again, these places are not only where I call home, but where I learned my love of taking care of people and the importance of taking care of myself.
During the past 25 years, I have supported mothers giving birth, provided hands-on healing for thousands of clients, and practiced yoga as both teacher and student.
With my beloved family and cherished colleagues by my side, I grew GLOW - A Holistic Wellness Studio, from 2010-2020.
I am a self-proclaimed extrovert and classic Gemini with my relationships feeding my soul from every angle. Some of my favorite things to do are bring good people together, forge lasting connections, and build community and wellness around me. I love to travel anywhere my family, friends or minivan will take me. I love to dress way up and way down and visit any place those looks are welcome. I love to listen, and most of all, laugh.
I am a bodyworker, and I have intuitively blended over 20 years of giving, receiving, listening and learning from a variety of massage and yoga modalities. My bodywork sessions may include: both superficial and deep strokes along with compression, passive stretching, breath work, rhythmic movement, energy balancing, acupressure, heat and aromatherapy. With a friendly, open, and calm heart, and a present and patient touch, I help guide my clients toward that sacred place where the nervous system rests between sleep and wakefulness, where true healing - their healing - can begin. It is my intention that my client’s experience leaves them feeling relaxed and refreshed - introspective and inspired - nourished and nurtured.
I am a woman, partner, mother, friend and entrepreneur. And most recently, the leader of RISE Wellness Collective in York, Maine, kindled in 2020.
