|After ten years of restaurant management, I decided there had to be something more to living than working in the corporate world. I was trained at the Massage Therapy Institute of Missouri in Columbia Missouri and have been licensed since 2001. As a student I was introduced to the Missouri Sports Massage Team as well as the AMTA. In the summer of 2011, I was honored to become part of the Community Service Massage Team. I have watched our profession grow over the past decade and I am proud to be part of it.|
|Open Position||Financial Administrator|
As a practicing Massage Therapist for 17 years, I joined the AMTA in 1998 when attending the Massage Therapy Institute of Missouri in Columbia, MO. Since then I have always looked forward to attending the continuing education classes at our state conventions and the fall class when offered. I have attended at least ten AMTA national conventions as well. At these conventions and classes I have learned so much from great educators and leaders in our profession. For me, the hands on training, the knowledge shared there, and the comradery and support of other therapists met through the AMTA have really been paramount to my professional development and longevity as a therapist. As I fulfill this years term as secretary of the AMTA MO my hope is to be able to give back to the AMTA since it has been such a benefit to me. Though I am inexperienced in the organizational leadership of the AMTA, our officers are being very helpful in teaching me, and they are great folks with whom to work. I look forward to serving as your secretary, meeting many more of you, and learning from you and your experiences in the year to come.
|Dee Featherstone||Delegate, Membership Committee Chair
I have been involved with the American Massage Therapy Association for about 9 years. I have carried many different positions within the organization. In the past I have held the position of 3rd VP, Membership Chair, and Member at Large. Currently, I am a delegate for the state of Missouri on a national level. The AMTA has been a wonderful part of my life and given me the opportunity to be apart of a strong, loving family and support network.
I am a fun loving and inspiring individual who loves all of humanity. I am a mother and a wife. Aside from massage therapy, for the past 4 years I have worked part-time at a non-profit store offering fair-trade goods and eco-friendly products. In my spare time I enjoy gardening, doing yoga, and learning about Women’s Studies. I am currently working with prominent women engaging in grounding and centering Shamanistic techniques. I am an eclectic massage therapist and enjoy using a variety of modalities in my practice.
