Secretary- Rosa Compton
I am a Registered Massage Practitioner and Certified Birth Doula. I have been a Doula for three years and a RMP for one year. I became involved with Massage Therapy while working as a Doula and decided to further my education in 2013. I studied massage therapy for over a year and attended two different massage programs. I enjoy continuing to educating myself, as well as my clients about massage therapy. I am currently working as a teacher assistant at Baltimore School of Massage and really enjoy it. I chose to become involved with AMTA because I believe it is a great organization and I love what I do.
