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.
