I am a Certified TMS Technician, as well as Licensed Phlebotomist and Medical Assistant. I was born in the Grand Valley and feel we are so blessed to have such an innovative treatment in our area! I was drawn to TMS when I watched the love of my life struggle with depression. He had tried everything and TMS was his last hope. TMS changed my husband’s life, and we will forever be grateful. I wholeheartedly believe that this treatment works, as I have seen it in my own family. I love my job because every day I am able to help people when they really need it. It is an incredible thing to witness people improving and growing! I am a proud mother to two little girls, and a wife to my amazing husband.
