Samantha Cooper

Samantha decided to become a massage therapist after getting out of the army in 2008. She served as a combat medic and wanted a different way to help people relieve pain without using medication. Massage therapy made that possible. Samantha Cooper graduated from A New Beginnings School of Massage Killeen in 2009. In 2013, she became a massage therapy instructor and taught at a school in Richardson, Texas. Then, she took break from teaching to complete her Bachelor's’ Degree of Science in Nutrition from Texas Woman's University.

Samantha’s love of massage and teaching brought her back to where she started to teach at A New Beginnings School of Massage Killeen. Samantha is a science nerd and loves to teach classes such as anatomy, physiology and pathology. Along with teaching, she is also a nutritionist with WIC in Austin.
