- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I graduated from UCMT in 2016 and quickly joined the workforce after that. My current job is massaging. I work 35+ hrs a week, and in that time have gained 4,000 hrs of experience, but even more important, I've learned to trust my tools and my intuition. I'm also always looking for CE's (Continuing Education) and new modalities to learn, which is something not required by the Utah Licensing Board.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
When I was 14 my dad was diagnosed with cancer and his oncologist recommended massage as palliative care solution, something to ease his pain and possibly even extend his life a bit further. This actually worked for a while, until he was too tired to travel out one day. He missed his following 2 sessions and then passed. I do this now as my way of caring for those who sometimes just can't make the travel, but still need a helping hand.
- What types of customers have you worked with?
Anyone and everyone. I've worked on diplomats, professional college athletes, sports medicine directors, nurses, housewifes, and a lot of desk workers (it takes its toll).
