Board Member 2
Amy has been a licensed Massage Therapist and American Massage Therapy Association member since 2013. Her interest in migraine headache and back pain management accompanied with goals to improve her overall health and wellbeing led her to pursue an education in Therapeutic Massage. She is a 2012 graduate of the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy and in 2017, achieved her NCBTMB Board Certification. Amy has managed her own massage practice since graduation. During that time she also worked alongside a Gonstead Chiropractic Doctor for three years providing remedial massage and is currently an adjunct professor in the Asnuntuck Community College Massage Therapy Associates Degree program.
While earning a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Mass Communication with a concentration in Consumer Economics from the University of New York at Plattsburgh, Amy was also an undergraduate teaching assistant for two years and served as the first female Executive Producer of PSTV, a cable television station. Upon graduating in 1994, she was recruited and worked as a Production Assistant for NBC’s affiliate station: WPTZ- Channel 5 in New York. In the late 90’s, seeing the potential of the blossoming internet marketplace, she stepped away from commercial television to pursue entrepreneurial interests.
Her involvement with the AMTA began in 2012 as a student volunteer for the Connecticut chapter’s sports massage team. Amy has provided bodywork for elite and amateur runners at the Hartford Marathon each year since. She feels her experience with the chapter’s national award-winning sports massage team led her pursue a leadership role with the AMTA.
Amy has served as Connecticut’s Education Chair since 2017, has worked on the Annual Conference committee since 2018 and was elected to the chapter’s Board of Directors in 2020.
