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.


Cassidy Redig • Chapter President • Cheyenne

president.amtawy@gmail.com, 307-286-0434

Cassidy Redig is a Cheyenne based Licensed Massage Therapist at Cassidy’s Massage Therapy (est. 2013). She works with a diverse client base using multiple modalities to suit the needs of each individual. Cassidy loves using massage as a means to help people feel human and connected in a world that, for many, feels disconnected. In her free time she likes to paint, hike, and pretend she can play the guitar. Cassidy joined the AMTA-WY Board in 2017 at the Spring Workshop while taking a chance at having dinner with strangers. The open invitation to join the board for dinner changed, what Cassidy had expected to be a solo education experience, into an opportunity for volunteer involvement. One thing lead to another and now she’s the president! Cassidy looks forward to helping our diverse membership feel more connected as a unified, professional, and empowered community of Massage Therapists in Wyoming.

Kara Bacon • Secretary •Sheridan

secretary.amtawy@gmail.com, 307-751-3538

Kara joins the AMTA Wyoming Chapter Board after serving many years on less career-oriented non-profit boards in the Sheridan area. They are passionate about massage, as well as cats, theater and rocking a sick ginger mohawk. Kara chose to start a career in massage therapy after a short stint working in the newspaper industry, with their BA in Journalism. They’re still passionate about design and mass media, but much prefer massage therapy to desk work and weekend photo assignments. In 2012, they attended the two-year massage therapy program at Sheridan College. They are currently the main adjunct faculty member in the very same program that has changed their life for the better. They also practice deep-tissue and relaxation massage at Zen the Salon, in Sheridan. Through their work with the only massage education in the state, and their Board membership, they hope to further grow and up-hold the professionalism and legitimacy of massage therapy in Wyoming.

Kara prefers they/them pronouns, and has not taken to referring to multiple personalities at once, nor have they taken leave of their grammar education.
