I grew up a world traveler. My mother was in the Air Force & managed several labs, giving me a behind the scenes view of hospitals & medicine. I went to school for medicine & worked in several hospitals before ending up in cancer research. In 2015, I went back to school for massage therapy, my true passion. My family & I moved to Alpena over the summer & have enjoyed our stay so far.
