Meet our team
Maggie McGinnis Kerns, LMT
Hello! I am Maggie McGinnis Kerns, owner of Imagine Peace. I graduated from Body Wisdom Massage Therapy School and became a licensed massage therapist in 2007. I build my massage therapy sessions around each client's needs and work with clients of all ages, even children. I can help you with focused deep tissue work, injury recovery and pain relief or just let you de-stress, relax your mind and renew your spirit. I was a birth doula for many years, and I have a special passion for working with clients throughout pregnancy and early parenthood.
My happy home is shared with my husband, our daughter, four stepchildren, and a house full of pets!
We spend our days together creating art, gardening, reading, dancing, and playing. If you need help with pregnancy resources, creating your birth plan, breastfeeding, babywearing, cloth diapering, finding the right care provider (I know all the best people), gardening, or anything else you can think of - please pick my brain, I am happy to help!
