I became interested in John F Barnes’ technique during the 1990s while working in the Midwest equine industry. There was much talk and wonderment around a new way of treating lameness and gait disturbance. My curiosity grew as I continued to hear about the positive outcomes John’s Myofascial work was having with horses.
During my career with Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), as a Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) in the Oncology Rehabilitation Department, I was continually empowered to further my educational interest. It was during this time I became certified in Clinical Research, Tai Chi Fundamentals training, Leduc Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Manual Lymphatic Bandaging, Total Control Instruction with the Women’s Health Foundation, Clinical Instruction for Gateway PTA Students, STAR Provider with Oncology Rehab Partners, and John F Barnes Myofascial Release (JFB MFR) theory, practice, and application.
I continue to empower other practitioners through the instruction of Myofascial Release CEU courses at Phoenix College. I am hopeful, with the support of technological advancements, the growth in fascial research will further cultivate our healthcare community in recognizing the importance in myofascial treatment. I am excited to play a role in this ever-evolving discipline.
I have attended and completed the following JFB Myofascial Release Seminars certifications: Myofascial Release I, Myofascial Release II, Myofascial Unwinding, Fascial Pelvis, Cervical-Thoracic Myofascial Release, Subtle Energy Level I, and Mark Barnes’ Equine Myofascial Release, Dr. Angelique Barbra’s Holistic Animal Courses; Equine Myomanipulative Functional Therapy, Equine Cranial Sacral Therapy, Equine Kinesiology taping.

LMT, FST, L2
My life journey has been filled with variety. I was born and raised in a small Oklahoma town, and from there attended the University of Oklahoma and earned my bachelor's degree. After college, I moved to Prescott, Arizona for a job opportunity with a nonprofit based in Kenya, and worked with a tribe called the Maasai, followed by other job opportunities in Phoenix.
I’ve always gravitated towards hobbies and professions that allowed me to be in service to other people. When I learned about massage therapy and the different methods used to help people, I pursued this training and received my Massage Therapy license. I’ve enjoyed continuing to learn and do work in this field.
I later became certified in Fascial Stretch Therapy, studying under the creator of the therapy, Ann Frederick. I fell in love with this modality and have been amazed by the instant and long-term results it can achieve.
I’m so excited to continue my journey practicing Fascial Stretch Therapy at 906 Wellness. I’m looking forward to collaborating and growing with all of the amazing people who are involved here.
