About the Practitioner
At 18 years old I looked into working as a massage therapist, but back then the industry was not regulated and there were no accredited schools or state licensing. So in 2000 when I found myself at a crossroads, I saw a commercial about the Austin School of Massage and the lightbulb went off. I KNEW this was what I was meant to do....and it's not a job or even a career. It is my calling.
I was born in 1962 in Little Rock, AR. I have 6 sisters, a great husband, 4 children (5 including daughter in law) and a beautiful grandson. I have lived in Germany, Panama, and now Texas. I love to read and swim. I am not great in a crowd so massage suits me well. I am fortunate to do what I love and know that what I do helps people feel better.
The BODY, MIND and SOUL are so linked in our total health, I want you take full advantage of our time together and walk out feeling "comfortable in your own skin".
I hope to see you soon.
