Though I cannot go back and begin again, I can start from now to have a brand new end!

 I am thirty-six and originally from Washington D.C. and I have five beautiful sisters and two wonderful brothers.  I am the youngest child; although my siblings are successful in their own right, I am the first in the immediate family to have graduated college and to have received a graduates degree.  My mother was a very loving individual and she raised me to be just as caring and considerate of others, I believe that I am a reflection of my mother as well as my siblings.

 I am thirty-six and originally from Washington D.C. and I have five beautiful sisters and two wonderful brothers.  I am the youngest child; although my siblings are successful in their own right, I am the first in the immediate family to have graduated college and to have received a graduates degree.  My mother was a very loving individual and she raised me to be just as caring and considerate of others, I believe that I am a reflection of my mother as well as my siblings.

At the age of thirteen I lost my best friend; my mother died of an aneurism.  My sister Valerie and brother-in-law Tyrone, took me under their household in Los Angeles.  They provided a wonderful and supportive family structure and through them I learned how to become a more responsible individual.  Although, it was difficult adjusting to the expectations they had for me at first, I am much more of the person I am because of their influence in my life.

Education

 After graduating from high school in Los Angeles, I attended Seaver College at Pepperdine University.  Pepperdine was the most influential experience of my adult life.  It was here that I first really learned about massage from classmates as method for relaxation and reducing stress.  During choir rehearsal we would offer massage during warm-ups.  At the time, I didn’t realize that I had received “the call” then.

After graduating from Pepperdine University in 1998, I moved to San Francisco to pursue graduate studies at Golden Gate University.  I  earned my M.A. in Applied Psychology (emphasis on Industrial/Organizational Psychology) & a graduate certificate in Conflict Resolution in 2002.  Still ignoring “the call”, It was at this time that I felt satisfied with the level of education I had received.  Fortunately, I was wrong.

In March 2012 and after having no success with finding sustainable work, I bit the bullet and answered “the Call.”  I enrolled into National Holistic Institute in San Francisco, CA.  It was here that I realized that I am gifted with an intuitive touch.  After so many years of trying the perfect job, I found it.  Work that really made a difference and work that I love.  So for the following eight months I learned many massage modalities and found a way to really fine tune my skill and decide how I wanted to share my gift with the world.  I graduated from National Holistic Institute with a Certificate in Massage Therapy and Health Education, I was recognized with a Letter of Excellence in both Western & Eastern Segments with a cumulative GPA of 3.9.  I also received a service award for tutoring and assisting schoolmates.  I plan to take continue education courses in Reflexology, Myofascial release, and Aromatherapy.
