We had the good fortune of connecting with Latasha Jordan and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Latasha, can you tell us more about your background and the role it’s played in shaping who you are today?
I’m from Greenville tx a little town 45 min east of dallas. I was raised in the church and taught how to care about the people around you. when I was growing up I was surrounded by women in the medical feild. And women who were hard workers and breadwinners for their families. At some point, I found that I was pretty good at anatomy. Then in middle school I became a volunteer for special needs. I loved helping them with special Olympics. I found myself stretching the kids and helping them with tight muscles in their legs after running. In high school I continued to work with them. And also was exposed to a massage therapy instructor who taught me massage therapy, physical therapy and very basic chiropractic therapy. Out of high school I thought I wanted to do alot of things from Architectural design to be in the fashion world To information technology and even in the medical feild all of which I have held certifications or degrees in some form. But in the middle of all of that I found myself working with a few professional football players. But I always fell back on massage therapy. So today with everything I have ever done, I bring it to my tiny business. My clients come to me because they know that I care deeply and I will work hard to make sure that they achieve the goals they have with me. and I always educate myself and require all that from everyone that works with me.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Well what sets me apart….I guess the thing that makes us different is how we don’t rush our client and we listen to our client. We make sure we understand our clients needs. From our services to the products we use. If it is a product or service we are unfamiliar with we do what we need to to learn about it so we can make the right choices for our business as well as our clients. They are like family to us.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Well given that I have a busy home life I don’t get out much. But downtown Mckinney is one of the nicest places to go. You have to go to 2 shops down there. Hugs restaurant is run by all special needs adults and the food is amazing. And Mom and Pops candy store. Where you can get some of the best old fashioned candy and gourmet popcorn. Then head just south of downtown to STIX Brewhouse for some outdoor fun and games.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My mom Dorothy Washington has been my cheerleader since I was 5 singing in the church choir. Mom and I live together and have been taking care of many people over the past 12 years. We took care of her husband who passed in Jan of this year. I also have 2 nephews that live with us 12 and 16 years of age. And they keep us running. I also have an awesome 6yr old son that is the boss. And recently a cousin that we call my 1st baby has also come to live with us. They all support me so much I know I would not be able to have taken the big step to even start something like this. When I sit down and talk to her about my goals and what I want to do, he helps me talk it out and supports me.
