Hello, my name is Tammy. I graduated from Carlson College of Massage Therapy in 2013. When I graduated I had my goals set very high and I knew it would take time to get there. But I kept my eyes on my goals and now I’m proud to say that Cloud 9 Massage & Spa is open.
I’ll tell you a little about me: I’m first and foremost a mother of two wonderful little boys. I grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and now I get to raise my little boys in the same area.
I like to go horseback riding every chance I get; I love to go four wheeling, going camping whenever I can get away. Traveling the world is my life-long dream, and I also enjoy just having a great time with friends and family.
I chose to be a massage therapist for one reason: prior to learning massage therapy I worked at a care facility, and seeing how massage had helped the residents that were in hospice I was truly amazed. I just knew right then I had to learn how to do massage therapy so I could have that effect on the people around me. When I got my hands into the field I found a whole new world. Learning massage therapy changed my life in so many ways and I will forever be learning new things. I can’t wait to help others understand the benefits of massage therapy.
Hi, my name is Adalynn Shaw and I graduated last year from Coe College in Cedar Rapids with my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Public Relations.
I started working at Cloud 9 Massage and Spa, Your Float Haven as the receptionist in August of 2016. A few months later, I was promoted to Spa Director. I now do the social media (Facebook Page and Instagram), a little work on the website, and various other promotions we come up with! This is basically my dream job. I love that everyday is different, and that I have so much creative freedom.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, taking photos of nature, crafting, and hanging out with my cat, Leo. My favorite part about working here is seeing the client’s face when they have just received a treatment. I love knowing that Cloud 9 helped them unwind.
Hi, I’m Tracy Mixon and I was hired as a part-time receptionist at Cloud 9 in February of 2017. After a successful career at the University of Iowa, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work within the community my family has called home for more than 20 years in a field that I’m passionate about. I’ve enjoyed the benefits of massage throughout my life, both as therapy and for pleasure, and I highly recommend it! In my free time, with my dog by my side and the stereo on, I enjoy homemaking, gardening and reading. In the summer my husband and I spend as much time as we can at the lake. We love tropical beach vacations and look forward to travelling within the United States to explore the many wonders of this great country. I look forward to seeing you at the spa!
Hello, my name is Ashley Schrader, I'm a licensed massage therapist. I graduated from Capri College of Massage Therapy in 2012. I LOVE what I do and I have been practicing massage for 5 years now and I couldn’t be happier. I plan on expanding my field by going back to school in the fall for esthetics and learning some new massage techniques right here at Cloud 9!
A little bit about me.. I was born and raised in Cedar Rapids, I am a mother of identical twin girls, they are such a blessing. I also love to travel, I enjoy time with my family and friends, love being outside in the warm weather. In my free time includes Jeep rides and Cubs games.
I am very excited to work here at Cloud 9 Massage & Spa with such an amazing team. I am looking forward to learning new techniques and watching my business grow. I can’t wait to meet new clients and help them find that massage that will help them in so many ways!
Hi, my name is Erin Castle and I am a Licensed Esthetician. I graduated from Capri College in Cedar Rapids in May of 2017. I was born and raised in Southern California and moved to Iowa in 2014. I was in Nursing School but decided that that wasn't the career path for me so I followed my heart and enrolled in the Esthetics Program. I love being able to help those who want to love their skin and feel confident because I have suffered from acne my whole life and continue to struggle with the damage it has done to my skin.
I have a beautiful daughter who keeps me on my toes! I love spending time outdoors with my family, enjoy watching movies, playing games, and traveling. I enjoy watching makeup tutorials to get new ideas about different techniques and trends.
I love living in Iowa and never plan to move back to California, even though I miss the beach very much. Someday my dream is to travel to different countries and learn new techniques in waxing, facials, and makeup.I am so honored to be working at a spa that is so welcoming and customer oriented. I cannot wait to see and meet you at Cloud 9 Massage & Spa.
