Missy King is a board-certified and NICU certified music therapist based out of Lathrop, CA. Missy grew up on a farm in Bakersfield, California where an interest in music sparked piano and trumpet lessons around the age of five.

Since becoming a music therapist, Missy has gained experience in working with various populations in the Sacramento, Davis, Stockton and East Bay areas. This included a majority of medically-based settings within medical-surgical, ICU, NICU, oncology, pediatric units and in an infusion center. Missy has also gained experience working in hospice, psychiatric and school settings, and others.
Missy also loves traveling, fishing, camping, scuba-diving with her husband, and crafting!
