Licensed Massage Therapist
Hi, I’m Vicki! I am a 2000 graduate of Sister Rosalind Gefre’s School of Professional Massage, Fargo ND and then became a licensed massage therapist in the state of ND. Before graduation I started my practice in Barnesville, MN & later moved it to Fargo after 1 year there.
I left the field at the end of 2004 to raise a family, but with much anticipation returned to school at Globe University, Moorhead MN in 2015 to start the process to return to the status of a ND licensed massage therapist. I graduated from that program in December 2015 & regained ND licensure in February 2016. I truly feel that I am home again & where I was always meant to be.
Originally from Canby, MN & Fargo, I now reside in West Fargo with my husband, our 2 teenagers & fur baby Boxer, Hobbes. I enjoy spending my free time with family & friends & cuddling with my dog. My professional mission is to help you feel better and reach your wellness goals by providing a caring, calm & safe environment so your specific needs for massage can be met. I am thankful for all of my loyal & wonderful clients and look forward to meeting you!

CNHC, Colon Hydrotherapist
I specialize in innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, female and child nutritional deficiencies, and over 100 dietary theories. I am equipped with cutting-edge knowledge in holistic nutrition and have extended my education with a gut health focus.
Gut Health is a passion of mine, as I can personally relate with my lifetime of gut issues.
Drawing on not only my education, but my personal life and health experiences as well; I work with my clients to help make lifestyle changes and choose health-promoting ways that produce real and lasting results. You will develop a deeper understanding of food and lifestyle choice. Each session will leave you feeling inspired and motivated. We will talk about things beyond food, seeking to bring balance to important elements of your life and mindfulness. I will personally and carefully guide you to make simple, small changes that transform your life that work best for you, improving your energy, balance, health, and happiness.
I am a strong believer that No one diet or lifestyle works for everyone, and am confident that together we can translate and discover what your body is telling you; and together create a plan to give it what it needs, while giving your lifestyle a good fit.
As a Health Coach, I will be your personal advocate for living an energized and passionate life. I work with my clients to help them create happy, healthy lives in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline. By working together, we can discover the food and lifestyle choices that best support you. Making gradual, lifelong changes enables you to reach your current and future health goals.”
