Workshops in PNF, Feldenkreis, and Thai massage were the catalysts to pursuing her formal massage therapy training.

Jessica graduated with Honors from New Mexico State University and received a Bachelor's of Arts in Dance. She began her massage therapy education and training at the Cortiva Massage School in Colorado. In 2008, Jessica completed her massage certification with Honors at Boulder College of Massage Therapy. While at BCMT, Jessica was individually selected to work with football and soccer players at the Colorado University Sports Internship program.

Jessica's training with dance and massage has provided her with extensive experience and knowledge in the areas of anatomy, kinesiology, biomechanics, Bartenieff Fundamentals, and stretch and strengthening techniques using Thera-bands. She has worked as a massage therapist for numerous spas, chiropractic wellness centers, and has done freelance work providing massage therapy for dancers and athletes.

Jessica's massage expertise includes Deep Tissue, Post-event, Swedish, and Pre-natal massage. However, her true passions lie in Orthopedic and Integrative massage which emphasize physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health.  Jessica intuitively guides clients toward an elevated state of health and relaxation while providing a unique session for each client through visualizations and breathing exercises.
