About Ivy

Ivy is an experienced medical massage therapist with more than 21 years of experience. 

Born in Baltimore, MD and raised in both Chicago and the suburbs of Atlanta, she fell in love with anatomy and the function and design of the human body in a
high school art class.

Ivy was raised in a family where natural healing was honored. Both her aunt & uncle were Certified Reflexologists in Lancaster, PA, serving the Amish community for more than 30 years. She began working on her dad's feet when she was about 6 or 7 years old, developing an intuitive touch.

Educated at Gwinnett College in Atlanta, GA she was the Valedictorian of her graduating class in 1996.

Ivy lives with her new spouse Debbie and their furry children, Raven & Ravi and practices out of their home in Gainesville, GA.

When taking some time away from helping others, we all enjoy boating, swimming, fiber art, painting & sketching, pottery, gardening and gourmet (gluten-free) cooking.

We started ECHO
as a simple facebook page in 2014.

Encouraged by friends who were seeing major changes in health & extreme weight - loss
to share our recipe for success, we favored the idea to help others.

Yes, we are working on a cooking publication as well as live-cooking events.
