Committee Chairs and Delegates

Delegate
Corey Rivera

Corey has been an AMTA member for 8 years. She graduated from the Ann Arbor Institute of Massage therapy in 2008. She co-owns a private practice in Okemos. This is her first time volunteering for AMTA and she is terribly excited.

Corey studied opera and human biology at Lansing Community College and Michigan State University. She attended the College of Osteopathic Medicine at MSU in 2016 where she realized that her true interest was massage therapy and all of its possibilities.

In her spare time, Corey enjoys detailed cross-stitching, watching all manner of movies, reading cheesy romance novels, and attending nerdy conventions with her husband.

Government Relations Chair
Jessica Carter

As a massage therapist, Jessica enjoys the amount and quality of time she gets to dedicate to my clients. Whether it be the hour of hands-on time she has with them, listening to their needs and concerns, puzzling out their situation, and treating them or the time Jessica invests in learning about new research, techniques and training.  Massage therapy does after all have the best continuing education which helps keep me fresh and motivated to serve my clients! 

Volunteering as the Government Relations Chair for the AMTA MI chapter has been one of the most rewarding experiences for Jessica as a professional. As a licensed health care provider, it is important to her to stay involved with the current events of our license and profession. She volunteered for this position in the hopes of further legitimizing massage therapy in the state of Michigan and also to ensure that our licensure, rules, and regulations are not only upheld but also equal and fair.
