Jaime Nevins, LMT
I am a licensed massage therapist through the state of Iowa, a member of the American Massage Therapy Association and am proud to be a graduate of Carlson College of Massage Therapy.
When I was 19 I received sexual assault advocacy training. Since then I have continued to work to end rape by supporting survivors and continuing activism to educate and help end gender violence.
I have 7 1/2 years of experience with client advocacy in clinics based on feminist ideals in the south and midwest. At one of these clinics I was able to gain experience working with transgender clients in a health care setting. I continue to learn, speak and educate in my community around gender, racial justice, sexual assault and other feminist issues.
Besides building my practice and taking care of my farm and chickens, in November of 2014 I attended the Transgender Spectrum Conference in St Louis. The conference was amazing and I was very impressed by the folks from Gender Spectrum. I would like to work to bring them to the Iowa City schools and community in the near future. Turning the knowledge I have gained into action, I co-started TransVerse a trans support group in July 2015 at the ever supportive WRAC.
