“My grandmother was a Native American Indian from Central Pennsylvania. When I was a young girl, she would take me for walks in the woods and teach me about the healing properties of plants. She was instrumental in guiding my career path as a holistic massage practitioner. I am inspired by her wisdom, compassion and reverence of nature and respect for the universal laws of body, mind and spirit.”
“I am also inspired by the power of nature. I enjoy working with pottery and stained glass, sculpture, oil painting, drawing and watercolor painting. My hobbies include kayaking, long hikes, cross-country skiing and horseback riding”

"Before we opened our spa, I was in desperate need of relief from a neck injury from working out. I was lucky to have found Susan ... her healing touch gave me instant relief! Years later, Susan joined our team. We were all so happy that she came because her experience combined with her gentle nature made her a welcome addition." -DJW
