Our Team

I founded Ground Luminosity in 2012, but have been a bodyworker since 2006. I discovered in this time that, as much as I’d like it to be true, bodywork is not the only answer for improving one’s life. It sure does help, but so does acupuncture, good nutrition, and safe exercises like yoga, tai-chi, and qigong. Combined a person can achieve an amazing state of existence. For this reason, I have expanded my practice to include acupuncture and exercise classes with nutrition workshops. My intention and that of my team are to help improve the lives of as many people as we can, so they can make decisions from a place of love and trust to continue their health and that of the environment. It sounds cheesy, I know, but it’s true. The only future we have is the one we create.

I graduated in 2012 from the macrobiotic program offered by Denny Waxman in Philadelphia. This course led me to expand and continue my education by enrolling in The International School of Shiatsu (ISS) in 2013. While continuing my macrobiotic studies, I began taking shiatsu classes at ISS. I assisted Denny Waxman by scribing for health consultations from 2011 to 2015 while also apprenticing in the kitchen at the Strengthening Health Institute for macrobiotic cooking.  In addition to my shiatsu practice, I also offer cooking classes, private cooking, and nutritional consultations.

I am a licensed acupuncturist in Pennsylvania. After graduating with a degree in Asian Studies from Swarthmore College, I earned my  Masters degree in Acupuncture Studies from the Won Institute of Graduate Studies in Glenside, PA. I have traveled throughout Asia, including four months studying Chinese medicine at Beijing University in China. I utilize Master Tung’s distal needling and Classical Five Element Acupuncture in her treatments. I treat patients with a variety of disorders, specializing in all pain conditions, allergies, women’s issues, and emotional and chronic conditions. I use gentle needling techniques in treatments and the tools of cupping, tui na, and gua sha when appropriate. I have seen first hand with myself and my patients how acupuncture has the ability to improve the quality of one’s life. I also believe in eating nutritiously and exercising regularly. I love to cook, travel, and spend time outdoors with my husband and dog.

I graduated from the Pennsylvania State University with a B.S in Hospitality Management. I have an extensive background in the industry, most recently working in management at a Spa and professional Ballroom Dance studio. I am so happy I was guided here exactly when I was supposed to be---finding my true home here. I believe in creating a unique, genuine experience for clients, connecting with people and making a difference. I also have experienced for myself and have seen how much massage, acupuncture, yoga and other alternative therapies can help heal a person's body. I love being a part of something bigger than myself and being intentional with life. My love for hiking and nature started from my husband, but he has yet to convince me to backpack. I enjoy reading, dancing, traveling, tea and wandering the aisles of Home Goods.

After studying a year of nursing and then continuing with psychology at Holy Family University in Philadelphia, I knew I was always interested in the human body and mind. I found Shiatsu after traveling to Thailand and falling in love with Asian bodywork. Upon my return home, I started my studies at the International School of Shiatsu and my life changed. I love how practice of Shiatsu lets me expand my outlook and benefit the lives of my clients. In addition to bodywork, things that I love include traveling, hiking with my dog,nature and cooking.
