I was inspired to find a way to heal myself and others in my late 20’s after giving birth to my daughter.  My lower back was giving me trouble post pregnancy due to a injury involving my lumbar spine after a skiing accident when I was 13 years old.  After different doctors and types of medicine didn't work, I knew I had to find a way to relieve my own pain.  To do that, I registered for a massage therapy class at the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in Newington, CT.

I was able to heal my own pain, and then spent ten years providing clinical massage in spas and on my own, all while working a full time job.  In April 2018 I decided to leave my full time desk job and subcontract in a chiropractic office while working on starting my own business.  I came up with the name BodySculpt after working on a client one day and thinking how I feel like I am actually sculpting one’s muscles back to a healthy state while helping improve their posture and range of motion.

In July 2018 I received an offer from a business owner to begin my business by renting space within SimsburyTown Shops.  I agreed, moved to Tarrifville with my daughter.  I'm opening the clinic in February, 2019.

My Successes: 

 I am often able to find the answers to unexplained pain through my knowledge and skill of clinical massage.  The work I do diminishes and, in most cases, dissolves pain.  This is why I am pleased to offer a source of drug free pain management for those in need.

I expect to hire another therapist in 2019.

How SCORE Helped: 

My SCORE mentors have been a huge support to me as a new business owner.  I began using their services in September and have been meeting with them twice a month ever since. They believed in my business throughout all of my frustrations and they challenged me (and continue to do so) to do even better than I thought I could.    I could not feel more blessed than to have the guidance and support from my SCORE mentors.  I look forward to a long mentoring relationship with all three of them as they each bring something meaningful and educational to the table with each meeting that we have.

What's Great About My Mentor?: 

They have helped me foresee and work through accountabilities that I otherwise did not think were necessary but proved to be.
