I was born and raised in Lexington, KY. After I graduated from Tates Creek High School in 1997, I joined the United States Navy. The military taught me discipline, respect, and pride. I was given the opportunity to travel all over Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Australia and Pacific United States. During service, I began working on my Bachelor's Degree in Business Management. At the end of my 9 years of service, I moved back to my hometown to raise my son, and completed my degree in December 2011. I was presented with a wonderful opportunity to learn massage therapy in September 2013. I successfully completed 720 hours of training, including 120 hours of internship at Lexington Healing Arts Academy. Immediately following graduation and licensing, I completed and additional 100 hours training in Hospital Based Massage Therapy, specializing in Cancer Massage in September 2014. This is truly where God wants me and continues to show me new things everyday through this beautiful work. The average career life for a massage therapist is 4-5 years. I look forward to providing massage for many more years than the average.
