Hidden Gems: Meet Destinee Austin of Destinee’s Heavenly Touch

Today we’d like to introduce you to Destinee Austin. 

Hi Destinee, so excited to have you on the platform. So, before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today.
It all started with my mother putting this idea in my head as a teenager. She would have pains and aches at home, asking me to massage her, and there’s me thinking I’m not doing anything or having any type of effect. In reality, she was enjoying it and actually felt better, and I thought maybe I can really do this and make others feel the same, so she encouraged me to go to school for Massage therapy, but I thought no one would take me seriously. Years went by, and I had went to school for CNA in 2013 as well as RN in 2015 and decided those were not for me, so I went back to my mom’s voice in the back of my head telling me to pursue Massage therapy, so I went for it in 2018. Here I am in 2022 with my very own Mobile Massage Therapy business of 2 years, and so happy I never gave up on my dreams and actually went for a career I love. 

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
No, it has not been smooth at all; one of the biggest struggles was having to pass my state exam! I had to take it 3 times to pass! I guess 3rd times the charm! Never give up. 

We’ve been impressed with Destinee’s Heavenly Touch, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Destinee’s Heavenly Touch is a mobile massage therapy business provided by me (Destinee). I provide a variety of massage services all around Orlando and its surrounding cities. My clients can receive massage services in the comfort of their own homes, I believe that sets me apart from others because who wants to leave their home for a massage nowadays? 

Can you talk to us a bit about the role of luck?
I don’t believe luck has played any role in my life or my business! Only God and he has blessed me tremendously, and I’m so thankful!
