About Me

If you are looking for a professional therapeutic Missouri State Licensed Massage Therapist, you have come to the right place. 

I am a professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association, and am trained in a variety of modalities, from light relaxation massage to deep tissue therapeutic massage.  

As the small business owner and operator of Change of Life, LLC, I  can travel with my portable massage table or portable massage chair to your home, office, workplace, corporate event, athletic event, other event, a reputable hotel room in the KC Northland in Clay or Platte Counties or by the KCI airport, or other arranged meeting space anywhere in the Kansas City Northland.  I see women, men, adults, elderly, adolescents, children, and infants (ages 17 and under must have written parent/guardian consent).   

As a self-employed independent contractor, I have contracted for other local and national companies, such as: Back & Bodyworks Massage I and II, Zeel Massage on Demand, SpaFlow, Incorporate Massage, Savannah West Luxury Apartments, Spalation, and Chateau Avalon.    

Prior to being a Licensed Massage Therapist, I was a Cognitive-Behavioral Mental Health Therapist specializing in Women with Anxiety and Depression.  I was in the mental health field for over 26 years.  I still provide Life Coaching services.
