For the past 10 years Kim has primarily practiced in lymphedema therapy working with a variety of causes of lymphedema: compromised vascular systems, cancer related, primary and injury-related. The Lymphedema expertise began after working in skilled nursing facilities for 4 years. In this facility, Kim had the opportunity to start a lymphedema program. Wanting a change but not knowing much about lymphedema, she did a lot of research on the internet and spoke to other lymphedema therapists in the Atlanta area. Though she loved working with older adults, she felt she could make a bigger difference to offer assistance in an area where specialists were scarce.
Having grown up with home remedies, Nancy learned to be open minded to alternative and natural therapies. She ran into Julie at an event in 2009 shortly after having shoulder surgery. Nancy was having complications with her range of motion. Julie asked that she come in and see her; the rest is history! Nancy’s shoulder was healed and she had a new position doing work she loves. Nancy strives to maintain the financial integrity and professional continuity of the office so the therapist can focus on healing their clients. She encourages everyone to consider incorporating massage and chiropractic therapies to help heal quicker and hurt less. Nancy also believes in the value of good whole food nutrition and exercise as a way to maintain physical health.
One of her favorite sayings is, “If you don’t take care of your body where else are you going to live?”

Her firsthand experience with pain relief and increased flexibility through massage therapy allows her to empathize with and affirm each client.
Petri, Customer Service
Petri comes to the lymph clinic with over 15 years of experience in billing and client service. A life changing experience redirected the course of Petri’s purpose to become a State Certified Nursing Assistant. Wanting to make a difference, while instilling her passion to help people navigate through tough times, Petri pulled from her own personal experiences of dealing with rehabilitation from a car accident which caused depression and anxiety. Interacting with clients face to face taught Petri the importance of listening to the needs of the client. Being able to empathize with others allows her to have a more personal touch and ensure that everyone’s needs are met with the highest standards of customer care, ultimately producing quality results.
