Owner of Madison Avenue Massage,

​Located in North Syracuse

I am so excited to have you visiting my site today,  I hope that you are finding it very easy to navigate.  I would love to tell you a little bit about myself. 

I am a NY State Licensed Massage Therapist. In 2009 I graduated of the Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage (OSTM) in Syracuse, NY, I have been trained in various modalities including swedish, deep tissue, sports massage, massage cupping therapy and pre/postnatal massage. In each massage session, I utilize techniques I have developed for years and have learned from a wide range of bodywork experts to deliver the most personalized treatments with exceptional results.

Specializing in deep tissue and sports massage I love that I get to work with a number of local amateur athletes in the Syracuse area.  After finishing my studies at OSTM I spent time in New York City working for one of the top gyms in the country. There I worked along side some of the city's finest personal trainers.  As an amateur athlete myself, a Functional Fitness Coach, and I am trained as the Level 1 CrossFit Coach, I workout 4 to 6 days a week.  I spend my free time doing Functional Fitness, Olympic Weightlifting, Running, Cycling and once in a while you might find me on a pool.  I take part in a number of local and national races/events throughout the year.  I also achieved the level of Black Belt in martial arts in 2004. 

My personal experiences as an athlete and a Coach has influenced my massage practice and continues to provide valuable insight on movement, muscle imbalance and/or weaknesses that I use to adapt massage techniques to best suit the needs of my clients. Whether it be injury prevention, pain management, stress reduction, or otherwise. I work together with clients to help them achieve greater balance mentally and physically.

​In February 2015 I was Certified as a Lower Body Myoskeletal Alignment Specialist with the Erik Dalton Freedom From Pain Institute.

This specialty taught me a number of important skills such as;

-how to assess and correct muscle imbalance patterns
-how to safely integrate Golgi tendon, ligament friction, facet recoil, assisted stretching
-how to correct SI Pain
-how to break neurological pain cycles with special Myoskeletal Receptor Techniques


​​In April 2016 I was Certified in Massage Cupping Therapy from the ACE Institute 

Cupping Massage Therapy is a non-invasive technique to assist in:

               -Pain Reduction                    -Skin Toning & Firming

                -Joint Mobility                       -Detoxification

                -Scar Reduction                    -Releasing tight, contracted muscle tissue

...and many more

In 2019 I took the CrossFit Level One Certificate Course 

This Course gave me a more in depth understanding of proper movement patterns and the importance of movement and exercise for heath and longevity.  It also taught me some basic principles in proper nutrition and how important it is to properly fuel your body in order to assist you into reaching your peak performance. This Certificate also allows me to Coach Crossfit/Functional Fitness, the use of strength training in conjunction with regular massage therapy will help my clients move better, more efficiently with the end goal being- with out pain.   

In 2019 I had some personal life altering occurrences take place that took my life on a downward spiral.  Then in 2020 Covid-19 changed the whole world forever.  I have taken the time to dive deep into myself, my mindset and how to truly find happiness. I have read a lot of books, I have attended many seminars (thank you Tony Robbins), and spent a lot of time alone. I have a Bachelors degree in Sociology, I worked in Group Homes and spent many years in Law Enforcement. I have had some very unique life experiences that have helped me understand the human condition. We can't know everything about our lives but I know my life was meant to be in services to others.  I believe it is my purpose to help others live their best lives.  It will bring me so much joy to help you find yours.
