Debra graduated with a BS in Nursing from Montana State University in 1983 and has worked as an RN with people of all ages and various medical conditions. Following a life-threatening motor vehicle accident she spent many years rehabilitating. Therapies including massage and CranioSacral Therapy allowed her to return to work as a nurse and inspired her to begin a bodywork practice of her own. She received her Certification in Massage Therapy from Starfire Massage School in 2000 and trained with the Upledger Institute in CranioSacral Therapy. In 2011 she was introduced to Reiki and continued training to Reiki Master Teacher, studying with William Lee Rand-founder of the International Center for Reiki Training. As a Massage Therapist and Registered Nurse, she combines knowledge and skill from many modalities with an intuitive "listening" to the body to create a unique treatment for each individual.
Debra enjoys spending time with her family and friends, practicing yoga, recreating in the beautiful Montana landscape, traveling, laughing, eating good food, and experiencing art in it's myriad of forms.
