My name is Glendolin Grant, I graduated from High-tech institute located in Orlando, FL in 2006 as a massage therapist. I became a massage therapist not only because I have a passion for helping others, I believe that massage is a form of healing and it takes a special person to take on the role of a healer. I’ve worked in a spa setting such as massage envy and moved up to working next to some of New Jersey finest chiropractic and physical therapy doctors. I love to learn and currently enrolled in Union county college and expected to graduate in 2023 with my associates in general science. I also have a certificate in personal training from Issa.

In 2016 she ran for the AMTANJ position of Delegate and was nominated. She went on to attend her first National Convention in Wisconsin. It was there she learned of the importance of AMTA. As the concerns of members were being voiced regarding education and licensing practices, public perception of the trade in the past and going forward, regulations that would both protect us as massage therapists and our clients as recipients of competent service, AMTA was listening.
Yathyra became a volunteer in order to learn and share experiences with fellow therapists. She feels passionate about massage therapy in that it is not merely a luxury to be afforded only by an elite few. Massage therapy is more than that. Massage is a medical modality and with proper education of both practitioner and recipient, true healing and or pain relief can occur. Massage therapy should be accessible to all humanity.
When she is not volunteering or working with clients, she can be found doing Yoga or Gardening, or cooking. She especially loves to spend time with her kids all of whom she is very proud of.
