About Me


First off, thank you for visiting! Just wanted to tell you a little about myself. I graduated from the University of Nebraska Medical Center with a Master of Physical Therapy in 1999. Since that time, I have gained experience in a variety of settings including home health, inpatient, outpatient, and skilled nursing facilities. 

I was first introduced to Myofascial Release when I was a student in Physical Therapy school and then started my training in the John F. Barnes Myofascial Release (MFR) treatment approach in 2003. I have been successfully utilizing MFR in the different settings I have worked in for the last 20 years and am excited to be working at BodyWise Therapy.

Most of my free time is occupied by spending time with my husband Eliu and our two adult children, Telesiana (and her husband Nick) & Jonathan, and keeping up with all of their various activities. As a family, we are truly blessed by participating in the music ministry at our church. I also enjoy reading, gardening, playing the piano, spending time outdoors, and taking a good nap.

Thank you again for visiting and choosing Bodywise Therapy for your therapy needs!
