Jeanette discovered her passion for the human body in the eighth grade, when she was assigned a project in her health class and she chose to research a musculoskeletal condition of the low back. She instantly fell in love with human anatomy and kinesiology and was inspired to become a massage therapist.

Understanding the importance of movement for muscle tissue, Jeanette also became an NSCA-certified fitness trainer immediately after graduating from massage school. Her passion for human anatomy led Jeanette to volunteer as an Emergency Medical Technician Basic (EMT-B) for Eastside Fire & Rescue, where she was motivated to deepen her knowledge in medicine.

Jeanette graduated from Seattle Pacific University with a major in physiological biology, and received a master in Chinese Medicine from Bastyr University.

Jeanette has been practicing massage therapy for 22 years and she specializes exclusively in medical massage, deep tissue, and massage/acupuncture combination therapy.
