Chapter Leadership

Chapter President
Kathy Paholsky


Kathy has been an AMTA Member for over 30 years! A licensed massage therapist, she specializes in pain management, craniosacral and manual therapy. As an NCB Approved Continuing Education provider, Kathy has taught at local meetings, state and national conventions as well as creating online courses for AMTA.

She's been a volunteer for AMTA at the state and national levels, working on school committees, and is currently on the National Convention Education Committee. Since becoming the Michigan Chapter President in 2017, she's had a chance to meet many of our members and renew connections with former students. The friendships she's made and sense of fun she's found as a volunteer keep her active. Massage is a solitary profession; AMTA provides a community of caring therapists.

Cindy still believes in AMTA, and even today she highly recommends AMTA to any massage therapist for their business.

Financial Administrator
Rob Wiedling


Rob is the clown of the AMTA board and will laugh at his own jokes before anyone else does. People are his passion and finding new ways to work together is something he strives to do every time. But if you really want to get to know him, don't expect to read about him. The best way to learn about Rob is the same way he wants to learn about you. Ask. Take the time to send him a line or start up a conversation at the next education event or meeting. You will be glad you did.
