I graduated from Carlson College of Massage Therapy in Anamosa, Iowa in 1999. Not being sure of what area of massage I wanted to specialize in, I completed CEUs in pain management and sports therapy. After having surgery on both shoulders 2 years apart, I began studying James Waslaski’s orthopedic massage courses. Through James Waslaski’s hands on courses, I heard about Erik Dalton and began taking his CEU home studies courses.
I attended my first hands on course with Erik in Oklahoma City in 2012. I’d had back issues for 2 months, had therapists work on me, tried 2 different chiropractors and nothing was helping. After Erik and Paul’s 10-minute demo on me, I was able to stand up straight and walk pain free. It was the best feeling. I was hooked and continued my CEUs with Erik’s home study and hands on courses. I am able to help my clients with the knowledge and the techniques I have learned from these courses.
I currently operate my own massage therapy clinic and am the Hands-on Massage Therapy Instructor for Capri College in Waterloo, Iowa. I love coaching the massage students using my 19 years of experience and knowledge. What is the next step for me to best utilize my abilities and knowledge to help others? That is unknown as of right now, but I know my decision to go to Oklahoma City, meet the Dalton gang, and pursue my MMT certification was my BEST decision ever. Thank you to the Dalton Gang.
