Debra graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from Montana State University in 1983 and has worked as a Registered Nurse with people of all ages and different medical conditions. She received her Certification in Massage Therapy from the Starfire Massage School and Healing Center in 2000 and trained with the Upledger Institute in Craniosacral Therapy. In 2011 she was introduced to Reiki and continued her training to Reiki Master Teacher, studying with William Lee Rand--founder of the International Center for Reiki Training, in Hawaii and Glastonbury/Stonehenge, United Kingdom.
Following a life-threatening motor vehicle accident in 1993 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.
Debra enjoys spending time with her friends and family, practicing yoga, recreating in the beautiful Montana landscape, traveling, laughing, eating good food, and experiencing art in it's myriad of forms.
