About Kol

Kol has always had a passion for helping others. In college, he  volunteered for the State College Crisis Hotline, and was also a direct support consultant for Strawberry Fields Inc. Prior to attending Massage school, Kol worked at Provail as an employment consultant, helping students with intellectual disabilities find employment in the Seattle community. 


Kol's interest in massage began in college, when he began running.  His running quickly progressed to completing marathons and ultra-marathons regularly. Due to the increased mileage and wear and tear on his body, he turned to a friend and mentor to aide with his recovery.  Massage Therapy became a routine part of his training, and due to experiencing the amazing benefits of massage, Kol became fascinated with the human body and how it functions and heals.  His passion and goal is to spread health and wellness to others through bodywork and therapeutic massage.

Personal Life

Kol is a Pennsylvania native, growing up in the rural town of Coudersport, PA. After graduating from college, he convinced his wife to move to Seattle, WA to explore all that the pacific northwest had to offer. On New Years Eve of 2017, they welcomed a baby girl into the world, and in the summer of 2018, Kol and his wife decided to move back to the east coast to be closer to friends and family. Currently, they reside in Swisshelm Park, Pittsburgh.  Kol is excited to start this next chapter in the Steel City!
