After graduating TLC in 2011 I immediately began gaining experience by working on my own practice as well as doing chair and sports massage for different events around the city. In July, 2012 I received my NASM Personal Training certification in attempt to bridge two aspects of care to help my clients. Still trying to round out my practice I received an advanced certification with Precision Nutrition as a Fitness Nutritionist, an Upper Body certification with ART (I will be certified for Full Body by the end of the year), and my certification of Applied Functional Sciences.
After working beginning positions as a therapist I have now settled into a wonderful dual practice of massage as well as personal training. I currently work at the Austin Massage Company specializing in sports rehabilitation as well as the newly open Max Training facility as a personal trainer. I hope to bridge my skills as a therapist and trainer to provide my clients with unique rehabilitative strategies to recover from their injuries and achieve their goals.
In my spare time I have created a service project called One Touch Forward as a way to give back to the community with free massages to the inspiring individuals in and around the city. I am so thankful for my time at TLC as it provided me with a wonderful foundation to explore education in the healing arts as well as a form of expression to learn more about myself.
