I'm an LMT because... I was slumped over a desk for many years doing accounting, sales and as an insurance agent. My back ached constantly and I knew I didn't want that for the rest of my life. It took me about five years to figure out how to find the time to complete a massage therapy program but, I finally took the leap and have never looked back. I didn't know when I started school how rewarding a career in massage therapy would be (and that I would stick with it for so long). Now, every day at work is a great day! It is truly a pleasure to help people feel better and understand their bodies more!
