Meet Our Board

 


AMTA Wyoming Chapter Board
Due to the small size of the Wyoming Chapter board members often do double duty as committee chairs.

Chaz Gilmore • Financial Administrator • Casper

Chaz has been practicing massage therapy for over 8 years. His passion began when his brother was injured and needed massage therapy and physical therapy to help rehabilitate his range of motion and mobility issues. He went to the Boulder College of Massage Therapy because at the time, they were ranked one of top three in the country. He loves what massage can do and continues to do to show the medical community its effectiveness for things like pain management and many other musculoskeletal dysfunctions. Chaz is working with the American Massage Therapy Association to get massage regulations in Wyoming since there is currently nothing in place for massage licensure, etc. He is excited to begin his journey with AMTA to help encourage and educate the wonderful citizens of this great state.

Jessie Carroll • Board Member • GR Liaison • Worland

board1.amtawy@gmail.com

Jessie is a graduate of UCMT and became licensed in Utah in 2015. She has worked at
Cloud Peak Chiropractic for 3 ½ years, one of which has been in a management position. Having a passion for her career and a wish for our profession to become more recognized/accepted by the medical community are the driving forces of most of Jessie’s career’s decisions. Her fresh eyes and openness to new ideas will hopefully bring a different perspective to further decisions. Pairing that with her slightly unhealthy fascination for challenges should see Jessie flourish in this new adventure!

Megan Rumsey • Government Relations Chair • Teton Village

gr.amtawy@gmail.com

Megan began her interest in massage early-on, working on her grandmother’s arthritic feet and hands. She was a volunteer staff member at The Omega Institute for Holistic Studies then attended Utah College of Massage Therapy. She started her career in 2002 at The Body Sage Spa in Jackson Hole. She has worked at several world ranked destination spas, in private practice, and with touring performing artists. Megan had spent near 3 years living in the “blue zone” of  Costa Rica and assisted with Hot Stone/Body Treatment training at Harmony Hotel’s Healing Centre. Megan owns/operates The Sena Spa at The Teton Club, a private slopeside residence spa at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Megan travels extensively. She enjoys working, studying, and living alongside masters in the healing arts and experiencing indigenous bodywork treatments. Megan is dual-licensed as an Esthetician focused on merging health and science in skin care. She maintains Idaho Massage licensure in respect to the professional standards of the practice of massage therapy. As AMTA-WY Government Relations Chair, Megan feels it vital that Wyoming State government successfully pass legislation for the regulation of the practice of Massage, for the health and safety of the public.
