Meet the Team
Owner, Massage Therapist
I was fortunate enough to grow up in a family of massage therapists and was therefore
introduced to the many benefits of massage at a young age. I began my official therapeutic
massage training in 2004 and first became certified with the National Certification
Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork in 2005. I moved back to Bloomington
in 2018 and am so thankful to meet and reconnect with this community which has
always felt like home to me.
My goal in every session is to facilitate the physiological and emotional benefits
of therapeutic massage in a safe, relaxing and nurturing environment.
I was born in Joliet, Illinois and grew up in and around the Chicago region. After going through multiple back surgeries in the 90's, I found that massage was a wonderful way to treat my chronic back pain in lieu of pharmaceuticals. I love helping people find relief from their aches and pains that had previously limited them from enjoying their life.
I use a blend of techniques, most of which lean toward deep tissue. I implementing Chinese medicinal, Thai, sports massage, and trigger point therapies to help alleviate pain and increase mobility.
Now, I know what a lot of you are thinking. How do I pronounce that? It’s pronounced Tris-Tuh-Knee. You may think you’ll never remember it & that’s okay, I know its unique & trust me you’re not alone!
I’m the Spa Coordinator-Manager here at Terra Sana Wellness. I was born in Bloomington IN & I have lived here for most of my life.
I have 3 amazing little heroes who get to walk beside me on this beautiful journey in life & they keep calling me Mom. Besides watching them learn & grow into their own individualities, I love watching Lifetime movies (LMN) while enjoying some cheesecake or potatoes (Any kind, I don’t discriminate). I’m a big shy goofball who wants to make sure that you have the best experience here at Terra Sana. You may walk in as a Stranger but you’ll leave as Family.
