Instructor Profile

What are you doing now?
I am currently instructing/co-instructing a few courses at IME including AP1, ADV, CLOR as well as clinic overseer. I practice at Innate Healing Craniosacral & Massage Therapy in Marshall, Michigan. I am enjoying my practice, my process, and the great nature earth I reside in.


What do you remember most vividly about studying massage at IME/KCHA?
The hands-on approach I was guided through while learning at my own pace. I like that I was able to ingest information in a variety of ways through power points, scenarios, hands-on building, and classroom discussions.


How did IME/KCHA prepare you for your career? Would you recommend IME/KCHA? Tell us why.
It allowed me to look for my own vision, what I really want in life and in my professional practice. It also gave me the tools and support I needed to succeed in my own way. It also gave me an oppourtunity to view myself and my surroundings differently in order to progress rather than just manage.


What do you like most about being a Licensed Massage Therapist?
People can come to my treatment room for space to unwind, support to move through tension, and/or an oppourtunity to introduce/continue wellness of the mind, body, and spirit into their lives whatever that may look like. I believe this is a vital piece of restoration leading into transformation and evolution of consciousness. I can also help make the world a better place, myself a better person & always continue to learn and that is my ultimate goal in life.


Please share any advice for current students or those considering studying at IME.
