I have been a member of FSMTA since 2004 when I entered Massage Therapy training program. I have always volunteered within the organization holding various committee positions Hospitality member, Education Standard-Chair, Sports Team-Chair, Bi-Annual CE Event-Chair as well as PB Chapter Treasurer for 6 years. I am currently the Chapter President and Chair of our newly formed Community Relations Committee. I specialize in Geriatric, Lymphatics, and Palliative Care Massage as well as Chair Massage at Events and in Corporate settings. I am completing my Doctorate in Health Education through ATSU (Andrew Taylor Still University) with a dissertation focusing on the intent of direct care providers of Alzheimer/dementia patients to use touch therapy in their daily care protocols. Prior to my Massage Therapy career, I was in retail sales and education. I still maintain my FL Educator License.
