Owner, Licensed Massage Therapist, Esthetician and Nail Technician, Certified Spray Tan Specialist

KRAVE’s founder and owner, has been a practicing massage therapist since 1999. She, along with all of the other therapists, are all licensed through the South Dakota Board of Massage Therapy and are certified massage therapists through Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals.

In 2015, she continued her education to become a licensed esthetician and nail technician.

Marty was named the Brookings Chamber of Commerce-Women in Leadership and Learning (WILL) 2011 Rising Star Recipient. She is a member of the Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors, and is a Chamber of Commerce Retail Committee Member.

Marty and her sons, Joel and Jerett, are lifetime Brookings residents.

KRAVE’s growth has been such a humbling experience. At first, my goal was simply to help Brookings community members through the benefits of massage therapy. I am truly amazed and blessed by the endless opportunities that continue to be revealed. Daily inspiration abounds when I think of the lives that my team has touched and changed for the better, whether through physical massage, a compassionate shoulder, or the introduction of the amazing benefits of our new products. My sincere thanks to the community where I was born and raised…and where I choose to grow my personal and professional family.

Master of Operations

As the Experience Coordinator at KRAVE the Experience, I get the privilege of seeing and interacting with our clients before and after their service. With that I get to see the physical and mental change of the client before they leave. Being able to see the comfort that has been brought to the client during the service gives me the opportunity to work with them and their schedule to reserve an appointment for them again.

Along with working with the clients, I get to work alongside of some amazing and inspiring women. 

 Also I love to work with Marty, she rocks.
