Staff Highlight: Elizabeth Sheppard

Elizabeth Sheppard has worked as a massage therapist at Urban Sanctuary for over six years. She came on staff as extra help during our Valentine’s Day rush in February 2009, and we have loved her ever since…  One of the reasons we love Elizabeth is her personality — she is really up-beat and easy to talk to. Her comforting touch makes her massage absolutely magical!
