Grad Stories: Every Day is a Learning Day

A Letter From a Massage School Alum, Cassandra De Anda

I am excited and proud to say that I am a Lauterstein-Conway Massage School alumni.

I graduated in July of 2016. At the time I was attending massage school I was also finishing my Bachelors of Science in Athletic Training at Texas State University.

As my two graduations approached I started thinking of possible job position that I thought would be a great fit for me. Thanks to David Lauterstein, I was able to find out about a possible opportunity to work with Benny Vaughn.

He is a Licensed Massage Therapist and also a Certified Athletic Trainer. I thought working with Benny would be the absolute best fit for me!

I have now been working with Benny at his facility in Fort Worth Texas as an independent contractor at the Benny Vaughn 
Athletic Therapy Center. I have learned so much from Benny since day one when I began working with him. He has taught me multiple things such as client communication, assessment skills, and techniques to better help my clients. Every day is a learning day when you’re around Benny. He is constantly helping me build my business. I appreciate his willingness to help me be the best I can be in my career.

I have to thank my all my wonderful instructors at Lauterstein- Conway Massage School, Kevin Graef, James Aneweer, David Lauterstein, Mark, Tammie Culley, Mary Duval, and Cristal McCarthy. I learned something great from each of these wonderful individuals and they were the true foundation of what I have been able to build now in my career.

Thank you and I miss you all!
