Meet Emilee Trudo: Owner of TruConnection, Certified Massage Therapist, Reiki Master & Practitioner, Myofascial Release Practitioner, (and President of The Healing Cave Inc.)

Emilee Trudo

Emilee Auburne Trudo grew up in the small town of Vergennes, Vermont. Her childhood and adolescence were groomed by a close community that uplifted togetherness and kindness, and instilled a yearning for knowledge and new experiences.  Emilee moved to Indianapolis in 2014 for college, and in May 2018 she received her B.S. in Psychology from the University of Indianapolis. In her academic years, Emilee was involved with community organizations such as the Burmese American Community Institute (BACI) through the University, and the John Boner Community Center through Near Eastside Education AmeriCorps.  Emilee went to the Indiana Therapeutic Massage School (ITMS) during her Sophomore and Junior years of college, and became a Certified Massage Therapist in the spring of 2017. Shortly after, she received her certificate in Cupping Therapy from Angel Knoll at ITMS. Since then she has held a small traveling massage therapy practice, and worked for various larger-scale massage businesses (Elements, Soothe, JoyLife). In 2018, Emilee received her certificate as a Reiki Master/Teacher/Practitioner through Christine Eartheart at HeartSpirals.  In March 2019, Emilee received her training in Thai Massage (level 1) through the Still Light Centre via Embarque. Emilee also worked for the non-profit Indiana Center for Prevention of Youth Abuse and Suicide in 2018-’19.  Emilee created TruConnection on May 13th, 2019, in her hopes to offer a more genuine, personable, and authentic massage experience than what she felt able to do in the corporate spa setting.  Emilee is currently enthralled in practicing, studying and incorporating Myofascial Release (The John Barnes’ Approach) into the sessions she offers.  She has, so far, attended the hands-on seminars for MFR 1 (2021),  Myofascial Unwinding (2021), MFR 2 (2022), and MFR Pediatrics (2023.)  Becoming a practitioner of AND receiver of  Reiki and (JFB) Myofascial Release has inspired Emilee to create the nonprofit The Healing Cave Inc., to offer holistic healing to the public at no cost. So, stay tuned. 😉

Meet Keum Cobb, Content Creator, Certified Personal Trainer, (and Board Secretary of The Healing Cave Inc.)

Keum Cobb is an only-child from a very typical Midwestern family. Eating out, fast food,
processed foods, and delicious, but not so healthy, home-cooking were the norm. It wasn’t until college
when she began to take an interest in health. She began lifting weights in 2014, but struggled with fad
diets, weight-loss supplements, self-confidence, and everything in between. She became passionate
about learning and understanding all aspects of health. She received her bachelor’s degree in
psychology from the University of Indianapolis. Her passion only grew ten-fold as she saw the effects of
unhealthy lifestyles first-hand working in a hospital and outpatient medical settings. So, next she
became a certified personal trainer through the American Council on Exercise, and is working towards an
in-depth nutrition certification through Precision Nutrition. She now dedicates her life to helping people
fit health, whatever that may look like to the individual, into their own lives using a holistic approach. In
working with others, she focuses on mastering the basics and gradually implementing small changes to
form healthy habits and build the foundation for long-term success. She believes that fitness, nutrition,
and overall health are unique to every individual and they should be treated as such. Her goal is to
educate each and every client to have all of the necessary tools and knowledge to continue living a
healthy lifestyle without her.

Additionally, Keum was fortunate enough to partake in an online business mentorship giving her the skills to share her knowledge and help TruConnection prosper as the Content Creator. Keum plans on furthering her education with additional health coaching, nutrition, stress, and habit formation certifications in the coming year. Keum looks forward to helping TruConnection continue to grow and prosper to impact as many people as possible.
