In Memory of Veronica Ortega

Veronica Ortega

June 7, 1967 – December 11, 2023

On December 11, 2023 we lost our dear friend and colleague, Veronica Ortega. Veronica served the AMTA Texas Chapter as a Board Member, Financial Administrator, and Regional Coordinator. All who knew her experienced her passion for the massage profession and for massage education. That commitment led her to founding her massage school, Healing Arts Institute of Texas, in her beloved hometown of El Paso.

Veronica was a cornerstone and leader within the El Paso massage community, helping many to expand their knowledge and businesses. Her unflinching energy for integrity within the profession, and her willingness to confront any injustice, gained the respect of those she championed.

The Texas Chapter Board and Chairs are deeply saddened by the sudden loss of our friend, and promise to carry on the energy she created for always doing the right thing.
