In the years that she taught, the highlights were using her fusion of bodywork to lead and supervise her students in the medical tent at a Chicago Marathon, Charleston’s own Cooper River Bridge Run, and even demonstrating orthopedic assessment and massage on several of our Charleston Stingrays players.
