Torrey Risser graduated from Glen Allen High School with high marks in her studies. She hopes to soon continue her education in the field of Cosmetology where she will focus her studies in hair, makeup, and nail care. She aspires to work aboard a cruise ship as a hair/makeup artist for theater productions. This kind of opportunity would allow her to express her artistic side while traveling the world and meeting people from all walks of life.
She is incredibly excited to see what the world has in store for her
Torrey fills her time with friends, family, and her passions for music and crocheting. She has been playing the violin for about 14 years and is currently teaching herself how to play the piano. She is still a beginner with crochet, but she has plans for several projects such as hats, sweaters, and so much more. Presently, the largest project on her radar is a blanket to keep her cozy during the winter months.
Currently, Torrey lives at home with her mom, dad, brother, and two cats: Nick and Moki. She plans to move to either the Netherlands, Italy, or France within the next five years to immerse herself in the unbelievable beauty and rich culture of Europe. Until then, she will happily continue her work here at Comfort Acupuncture to provide support for Satori as the Office Manager.
