Kirsten

Kirsten began her RBAC career as office manager in 2001 after many years working as a preschool teacher, leading activities in a convalescent center, and providing customer service for PHS Insurance and St Barnabas Health network hospitals. Inspired by seeing so many people helped through bodywork, Kirsten became a licensed massage therapist. She soon became one of our most respected and requested massage therapists.

Since then, Kirsten returned to her role as office manager and continues to takes great pride in the care she provides our center. You will see upon entering our office how she makes everyone feel welcome and comfortable, supporting their day with her sunshine, warmth, and smile.

Kirsten practices restorative slow flow yoga and is a life-long student of dance. She creates unique artisan jewelry and loves to collage and paint.
