    My decision to become a massage therapist was based largely on wanting to provide a service that would increase the quality of life for those suffering from chronic pain. Teaching is my true passion and being able to share massage with eager students brings me a sense of constant fulfillment.

    Volunteering with the American Massage Therapy Association is something I am also passionate about. When I started volunteering, I knew I had found home. I love that we work together, raising our voices as one, to strengthen our profession.
