Phyllis is a native of rural southern Minnesota. She attended St. Cloud State College. Following that, she attended the Minneapolis School of Massage and Sister Rosalind School of Massage. Phyllis opened up her own massage business in Burnsville Minnesota and later developed a massage franchise that was the first in the entire nation.
The business was named “Keep in Touch” as a living memorial to her son, Dan. He was killed in an accident three days before he was to graduate from college. He had always supported his mom’s dream to open her own massage business. She continued to operate the business along with her family for the next 32 years.
Phyllis lives in Burnsville, Minnesota, with her husband of 62 years. They have two surviving children, six grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. She is now retired and enjoys spending time with family and friends, and especially playtime with her great-grandchildren.
