North Austin Coordinators
Massage Therapist, Owner of Austin Lymphatic, & Founder of Integrative Lymphatic Therapy, Music Lover, Outdoor Enthusiast For more than a decade, Jessica has dedicated herself to perfecting her expertise in Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD). She is the proud owner of Austin Lymphatic and the visionary founder of Integrative Lymphatic Therapy (ILT). Recognizing the immense healing potential of this specialized technique, she has taken her practice to new heights by developing (ILT). This approach combines the therapeutic benefits of MLD with her own innovative technique, Active Lymphatic Release (ALR). She further enhances her treatments with complementary modalities from various holistic disciplines, such as massage cupping, kinesio taping, and scar tissue intervention. As demand for her technique grew, Jessica faced the challenge of balancing her desire to help everyone in need with the limitations of hands-on work. In response, she pursued a teaching license to pass on her knowledge to a growing team of lymph-focused practitioners at Austin Lymphatic. Through workshops, seminars, and writing contributions, she strives to promote a more comprehensive and gentler approach to healing. At the core of Jessica’s passion lies an urgent drive to elevate the perception of lymphatic therapy in the healthcare field. She firmly believes that this technique’s true potential goes beyond aesthetics and extends to supporting overall health and wellness. With a specific focus on autoimmune conditions, cancer recovery, pre & post-surgical interventions, and various general health issues, Jessica advocates for implementing lymphatic massage as an integral part of holistic care. Maintaining a healthy work-life balance has always been a central part of her philosophy and one of the many reasons she chose massage therapy as a career. Jessica often takes breaks from it all to enjoy the outdoors, family & friends, singing & dancing and tries her best to find time to do absolutely nothing and sit and breathe. She encourages everyone to do the same!d to kayak!

I grew up near Philadelphia and enlisted in the Army upon graduating high school. I’ve served for over 21 years- both active duty and Reserves and worked for multiple United States Government agencies in the legal field for 10 years. My last position in civil litigation with the Department of Justice brought me to Austin.
My massage therapy journey began in August 2022 at the Lauterstein- Conway Massage School. I graduated in February 2023 and created my solo practice- Purple Lotus Massage LLC. I have worked with other LMTs doing group events such as in home spa parties, bridal party massages, and running and cycling events. I also do outcall massage with Soothe and most recently accepted a position at Massage Heights. I am a firm believer in the therapeutic and healing benefits of touch and feel so fortunate to be able help others with their wellness journey. I’ve seen the great impact of networking and idea sharing in my past professional roles and am happy to be a member of the Austin regional team providing that to other LMTs.
I am a proud mom of a son and daughter. I enjoy travelling, a good podcast or book, live music, cooking, distance running, kayaking, roller-skating, hot yoga, and stand up comedy.
