Born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, raised in Ohio and California, I got my start playing drums, singing and playing keyboards in various bands after graduating high school.
It wasn’t until I learned how to play drums from Joe Santoro, back up drummer for Deep Purple, when music played a vital role in my life. After graduation, I performed in a band called “Paradise” in Ohio and other bands here in the Little Rock, Arkansas area. I’ve always been a musician, sang with some great entertainers and met some great people along the way.
Even though I had always been center stage in the music field and graphic design, I had always wanted to be a massage therapist. I have done massage since I was 6 years old and with everything I have done, I will always have a passion for healing and helping people. I have this saying, “I want to heal the world one person at a time”…and I mean it!!
It wasn’t until 2002-2009 when my passion for massage came in to play full force when I worked at The Home Depot Corporate Headquarters in Atlanta, GA. I believe the most stressful department there is Advertising. Many people would come to me for chair massages when they couldn’t take anymore. Before I left to come back to Little Rock, AR in November of 2009, I had 10+ people I helped; whether it be pre-event sports massage, to clients with RA, it didn’t matter…I helped them all!!
I love what I do and it shows in my passion for helping every single person I touch.

He provided a table, towels etc which made it very easy to work with.
Very on point and definitely made for an amazing show at night - thank you again!
Romi (Prague Dotbot) came by, arrived early, was very well prepped (had her own table, scented candles, oils, towels) and had the brightest smile we'd seen in days!
She took care of the band-members who all were left amazed and startled by her touch ;)
Thanks Romana, def will hit you up next time round.
