I help you change the way you feel. With the daily juggle of careers, family, friends and personal responsibilities while sitting at a computer all day not to mention all of text messages, email and social media creates stress in our bodies.

Operating as usual


[03/19/20]   I hope you are staying healthy and well during this time of social distancing.

Due to an extreme amount of cancellations, recommendations from my Professional Massage organizations and licensing board, AND to help in reducing the spread of this virus, I will be closing my office beginning March 16th through April 30th.

I will assess the situation towards the end of that time to see where we are with the virus and the recommendations from the CDC and WHO.

If you still have an appointment on the books during that time, I will be contacting you personally to cancel and reschedule.


Happy Heart Day! Give yourself some LOVE today and follow these words of wisdom. 💗


Is your skincare routine making you sick?

The average woman puts over 515 synthetic chemicals on her skin every day, and of that, 60% of it is absorbed into her body. Studies show that our ongoing exposure to toxic chemicals is causing serious health issues.

--->>That's why it's SO important to join me at the world premier of The Non-Toxic Beauty Revolution -- learn non-toxic ways to be and feel beautiful!

There are 1,300 harmful chemicals banned or restricted from cosmetics in the European Union, and only 30 in the US. The US Toxic Substance Control Act (1976) was only recently updated in 2016, AND there has not been a law regulating cosmetic safety passed since 1938.

That's incredible... incredibly wrong!

Many popular lipsticks and lip glosses alone contain lead, cadmium, aluminum, chromium and other heavy metals.

There are so many better options!

Register to attend the free, online Non-Toxic Beauty Revolution to:
+ Identify hidden toxins in your beauty products
+ Remodel your beauty routine
+ Boost your beauty with diet and detox
+ Choose the best sunscreens
+ Avoid plastic packaging
+ And more!

There are safer solutions for beauty, and they aren't difficult to adopt!

I hope you'll join me for The Non-Toxic Beauty Revolution where you can hear from 50 experts in the areas of detoxification, skincare, med spa treatments, biological dentistry, plastic surgery, fitness, emotional empowerment and more.

Now offering Reflexology! I can integrate it into your session or we can have a reflexology only session.

Reflexology is a system of points for enhancing health, relieving pain, and for readjusting and balancing one's energy fields, by applying pressure with the fingers to points on the body's affected corresponding areas.


This is why we do what we do at Beautycounter. This is absolutely heartbreaking and this is a popular brand sold at Target.

These mask are being targeted for children but obviously contain aggressive, reactive ingredients that should not be used on the skin of children. Very likely adults, as well.

How do you practice self-care during the holidays?

We know it's not "the most wonderful time of the year" for everyone and that's okay. Here are a few ways to keep yourself at the top of your list. ✨

How do you practice self-care during the holiday season?


This is a short clip from the hearing on cosmetic reform. Ms. Eshoo is questioning Dr. Mayne from the FDA.
We definitely need to be paying attention, it's been 80+ years since this law has been updated!

The example used may be baby lotion but the FDA would answer same to all beauty care products (makeup, lotions, deodorant, shower gel, shampoo, etc.).


YOUR VOICE MATTERS! Please text BETTERBEAUTY to 52886 today to urge Congress to pass more health-protective laws in the personal care industry.

This morning at 9AM CST the CEO and Founder of Beautycounter will TESTIFY BEFORE CONGRESS as an expert witness in today's hearing on cosmetics reform.

Info below if you'd like to watch the hearing live!

And, to those of you who have supported the clean beauty movement and my small business, this moment is also for YOU. You have voted with your dollar, many of you have sent texts, and our voices have been heard. All beauty should be clean beauty. It's just that simple.


Toxic Beauty Doc

If there is a screening in your area, I highly recommend you see this!

I’ve been learning about all the toxins and chemicals that affect us in major ways along with the lack of regulation and safety standards in my Environmental Health certification class & from what I’ve learned from being a Beautycounter consultant.

I’d love to meet up (in person or virtually) to discuss the film if you have any questions or need help to step in the right direction to clean up your beauty products. They don’t have to be Beautycounter products, there are lots of awesome clean ones out there. This is this too important to ignore!

We are very excited to be able to announce that Toxic Beauty will be having its World Premiere as part of the Big Ideas line up at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival. Sunday, April 28th.

Opinion | Cosmetics Safety Needs a Makeover

"Cosmetics companies want unfettered access to a multibillion-dollar market. Consumers want to know that the products they’re putting on their bodies are safe. Both sides can win — but only if Congress acts."

This is why we fight for better beauty laws. Read the The New York Times Editorial Board opinion in today's paper.
