I am originally from Gatlinburg, Tennessee but currently live in Tallahassee. From 2006 to 2010, I attended Carson Newman College. I received a degree in Athletic Training and am certified as an athletic trainer. While studying for my degree, I worked with the football, basketball, baseball, tennis, softball, and men’s and women’s soccer teams. In July of 2011, I graduated from the CORE Institute of Massage Therapy, where I received advanced training in Myofascial Therapy, Medical Massage, and Sports Massage through the Master Practitioner Certification Program. While working with Dr. Van Tassel and doing rehabilitation exercises with patients, I have learned to treat the problem and not just the pain. By treating the problem with patient education, exercises, and patient home care the result is no more muscle dysfunction and pain. I get the greatest satisfaction with patients when they tell me the exercises helped and they have no more pain. As I add massage therapy to my profession, I will work on fixing the problem and not just treating the pain. I will focus on the client’s problems and stretching to come up with an individual plan that is specific to his or her needs
