Presenter’s Bio:
In 1998, as a new graduate of Seattle Massage School (Ashmead College), Everett, I started my own business called Health Massage/Transformations. As my massage work and my own interest in Track and Field intensified, my business transitioned to: Excellent Focus. In 2006, I started Masters Track and Field. Currently, I train intensely and compete at a National and World level. Years of personal experience plus feedback from many athlete clients about rolling has led to the development of my rolling techniques. I’ve refined rolling applications for use before, during and after activity, in training, competition and rehab situations. In addition to working with athletes, I teach undergraduate math at WWU. This aspect of my life also influenced how I apply rolling forces for different effects.
