Body Biz Massage Therapy, Michigan, Graduated 2016

Other than massage, what's the best or most interesting job you've had?

Being a professional street performer in New York City in my 20s was the most formative experience of my life. Being a field biologist in the shrubsteppe in Montana and Wyoming studying the behaviors of ground squirrels and sparrows was the most profoundly grounding experience of my life.

What other education do you have?

I have a B.A. in Biology from the University of Montana. I enjoyed studying ecology, genetics, and animal behavior. I have a personal passion for Deep Ecology and Human Ecology. My mentor in this vein is Paul Shepard, author of "The Tender Carnivore and the Sacred Game."

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

I love art, music, performance art, and dance. I also enjoy spending time with my two young kids, Tallulah and Cymry, and my stepdaughter, Onora.
