It was at the doctors’ suggestion, encouragement and with their full support that she sought further training and certification at the Austin School of Massage. Although pregnant with her first child and in the midst of a failing marriage, Tobi accepted this challenge with passion and dedication and managed to graduate with honors in 1996.
She continued her work with the Chiropractors and began to build her massage practice. During this time she attended numerous conferences on business and marketing.
Ultimately she moved to Oklahoma City in 1999, and opened a massage clinic which she ran successfully for 2 years. Once again, she worked in conjunction with Chiropractors in the area. She began to develop a dream.
In 2002 a new college of massage opened in Oklahoma City, and Tobi was the first instructor to be hired. Through the years, she has continued to learn, practice and use her gifts to help others. She saw her work at the college as an opportunity to share that knowledge and experience with her students in order to promote professionalism and excellence in the field of massage.
During her four years in instructing at this prominent college, she observed students who had learned invaluable skills and techniques flounder when they got out in the “real world”. They had been given classroom lecture but no realistic preparation for what lay beyond the learning institutions doors.
