I had a career in sales before deciding to become a massage therapist. Before that, I spent 12 years honorably serving my country in the United States Air Force.
Now, when people aske me what I do, my response is, "I help people maintain optimum health and recover from injury. I also help to rid themselves of stress and relax."
Becoming a massage therapist was motivated by watching the summer Olympics. I was impressed by the conditioning of these elite athletes and I wanted to be part of helping them bring home the gold! I also wanted a change in my life in a career that helped me define the person I had become. Redefining myself as a massage therapist seemed to be one of the best options for me. I love people, and I love being able to help them.
I've completed over 700 hours of Massage training with Kaplan College in Riverside CA. I'm certified through the California Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC) # 46246. I practice therapeutic, sports, and rehabilitation massage. I'm also very good with deep tissue. I provide Chair Massage at corporate events, golf tournaments, private functions, and other sporting events.
I've recently launched my own line of supplements. I will continue to learn all I can about the body, and nutrition so that I can always help my clients become healthier. In February of 2016, I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Health and Wellness. In addition to massage, I now facilitate a Diabetes workshop in the local area. Currently I'm completing a Masters in Psychology Health & Wellness.
Owning my traveling Massage Therapy business allows me the flexibility to service more clientele in the comfort of their environment. For those who live in the Inland Empire, I can be seen by appointment only at East Highland Chiropractic in Highland California for those who wish to travel to me.
I love working with active people. People who care about maintaining their health and wellness.
I work with athletes from high school to professional I've been fortunate to work with swimmers from the National Synchronized Swimming Team who recently went to the Olympics in 2016. I've been working with them since 2013. I've worked with other athletes in football, cycling, volleyball, boxing, golf, baseball, and wrestlers.
One population of people I am continuing to serve and learn about are those who have had either an amputation or Spinal Cord Injury (SCI). I had the honor of working with a group of phenomenal athletes from an organization called Paralyzed Veterans of America. They train SCI athletes who have sustained an injury to compete around the country. The experience created a strong desire to continue to work with SCI athletes.
Because I have a genuine love and understanding of people, I enjoy working with the elderly. We sometimes forget about them in our busy life but now that I have this great new skill, I want to share it with those who might need the comfort of a nurturing and caring touch. Just to be there for them and know that I could possibly bring some comfort to them is truly a blessing.
Being a massage therapist gives me a skill that I can share with others to truly help them heal.
I enjoy racquetball, lifting weights, and writing. I've taken on a new exercise plan and I now have a road bike. Football is my favorite sport to watch. I enjoy a good boxing match or MMA match. Secretly, I love the WWF and my favorite wrestler is John Sena. I'm a man of God. I thank God for all that He has given me and for all He continues to give me.
