I attended the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in English – Secondary Education in 1991. In 2001, I attended the Utah College of Massage Therapy, Nevada Campus, and was certified as a Professional Massage Therapist.
In the 15 years since: I've opened and continues my massage practice, Hands In Motion, in Henderson, Las Vegas, and Clark County business jurisdictions; worked as a licensed massage therapist with the Ritz-Carlton for 9 years in Henderson, NV; in 2003-2014, I instructed massage therapy students at the Nevada School of Massage Therapy, regarding their professional development and other massage modalities; in 2004, I attended TMC School in Chiangmai, Thailand, for a 90-hour Traditional Thai Massage Thai government-approved certificate; I worked with Drift Spa at Palms Place, in Las Vegas, NV, in 2010 for four years as a massage therapist.
I also co-founded, -developed, and -operated the Bodywork Concierge in 2008 for 2 years, a marketing/networking business in Henderson, NV, for bodyworkers and bodywork clients; and, in 2009, co-founded the Nevada Nonprofit Organization MWR Project Inc, to facilitate a large-scale, simultaneous massage therapy session to benefit a local healthcare-/medical-condition-related 501(c) Charity and the Massage Therapy Foundation in a one-day, occasional Expo, Attempt at the Guinness World Record®, and Public & Professional education-based course offering. Currently, I co-found and –manage Anatriptic Arts Inc, to provide clients, patients, and local employees of medical facilities on-site bedside, table, and chair massage by qualified, community-based and –licensed massage therapists to increase Quality of Life.
I have been serving the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) Nevada Chapter for 9 years as the Communications Committee Chair (past), Newsletter Editor (past), AMTA-NV.org Webmaster (current), 1st Vice-President (past) & President (current). I also co-organized the Las Vegas Massage Therapy Meetup networking group for 5 years.
And, when I'm not taking care of massage therapy clients, volunteering with the AMTA, MTF, NCBTMB, or running for President of the Netflix Bingers Club...I am out road-running.
