I have been in business at the same location for 11 years. I kept an out of industry job about 7 years longer than I wanted, but I needed to make sure my spouse felt financially safe before giving up a steady paycheck. I was able to finally achieve it in 2015 and I am enjoying the freedom it brings not having to punch a time clock.
I appreciate the flexibility to control my day and be available to my loyal clients. I fill my days with massage, helping uplift our profession by staying aware of legislative happenings across the US in my role of GR chair and being of assistance to my children as they call for help. I love being a grandma and being able to have the flexibility as a sole proprietor to easily say yes, I can help you out.
Remaining engaged with the chapter helps me stay focused on my practice and the need for watchful eyes on state and federal regulation. Always looking for ways to educate the public on what massage therapy is.
