Sue spent over twenty years working in Corporate America. Having learned first hand the effects of stress on the mind and body, she decided to pursue her interest in alternative medicine. She completed a 600 hour program at the National Massage Therapy Institute in Falls Church, VA in 2006.

She is Board Certified (to become board certified, practitioners must demonstrate mastery of core skills and knowledge, pass an NCBTMB standardized exam, uphold the organization's Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics, and take part in continued education). Sue is licensed in the state of Virginia by the Board of Nursing.

On a personal note, Sue was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. Having gone through this experience, she fully understands and sympathizes with anyone recently diagnosed or recovering from cancer treatment. Two years prior to Sue being diagnosed with breast cancer, her younger brother was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. She was devastated and began to learn everything she could to help him get through treatment and recovery having no idea she would be diagnosed with cancer herself. Sue feels like everything happens for a reason and now wants to help others going through this. She freely shares all she's learned about proper nutrition and taking care of ourselves from what we put in our bodies to what we put on our skin and how to effectively deal with stress. Since her diagnosis and treatment, Sue has pursued continuing education in Reiki and other forms of energy work and taken courses in Lymphatic Drainage and Cancer / Oncology Massage. Sue hopes to provide a level of comfort to others who hear those dreaded words "you have cancer."
