Spencer’s career path began with a B.S. in Biology from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC. He then moved to Jackson Hole, Wyoming where he worked in internet marketing for Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and volunteered as an EMT.
Spencer moved back to his hometown of Nashville, TN where he became a personal trainer and went to massage therapy school. His last class at massage school was Myofascial Release Therapy, and he immediately knew he’d found his calling.
Outside of work, Spencer enjoys rock climbing with his wife, volunteering with the Mazamas Mountaineering Club, relaxing in the backyard with his dog - Stoli, and biking around Portland.
