Amy's Story

I have always been drawn to movement. From world-class dancers, to a baby learning to reach, to watching a client learn more effective ways of moving, I find it beautiful, fascinating, and exciting.

Every movement has a purpose, and it has been my privilege and deep fulfillment to help people move towards their goals.
