Southeast Houston Co-Coordinators
As a 2017 graduate of Southeastern College in N. Charleston, SC, Aurie (ah-ree) humbly serviced those in the Geechee Corridor of South Carolina before relocating to Houston, Texas in 2020. Using her expertise as an organizer, she intentionally connects with other professionals to promote collective wellness within the community. Her current projects include advocacy for massage therapy as healthcare and centering its accessibility within the disabled community. When not in the treatment room, Aurie can be found exploring the world with her free-spirited Moonchile, indulging in her favorite forms of self-care, and learning of new methods to facilitate healing.

Carolyn graduated from the Texas School of Massage in 2010 and started her career in central Texas, specializing in various spa services, working with service men and women in the military, and training massage therapist. She returned home to Houston in 2019 and continued to train massage therapist at a day spa. At the ten-year mark, her career took a shift. She obtained her instructors license in 2021.

In her spare time, she volunteers as a delegate for the AMTA Texas chapter, and assist other massage therapist with the AMTA mentorship program.
My career in the medical field began in the mid 90’s. After decades of being in the nursing field I found my way into the wonderful world of Massage Therapy, and made the transition into a profession of doing real hands-on work with people that greatly impacted and improved their quality of life without the bureaucracy of the healthcare system. Having taught the Medical Assistant program in the past had given me a passion for teaching, so in 2016 I obtained my Massage Therapy Instructor License. I’ve instructed at several institutions including at the collegiate level, and I enjoy tutoring those students who need individual guidance. I was an elected AMTA Boardmember and found an appreciation for contributing to our ever-growing profession. For the past several years I have also been working with FSMTB as an Item Writer. I love the challenge of it and collaborating with some amazing people who were very influential to me during my massage education, and who continue to be a source of learning to new students who learn from their thorough textbooks. I live by the mantra that everything you know is worth nothing unless you share it with others, and I’m grateful to work with like-minded professionals and to help this distinguished profession grow to serve the community and to educate as many people as possible to the many benefits of bodywork.
