Why did I go into massage? I have always had an interest in holistic health, healthy living, alternative therapies, spirituality, exercise, etc, and massage & healing are a part of that. I began as a sign language interpreter for almost thirty years, assisting hundreds of deaf students in getting an education. A few years ago, as my interest in interpreting was changing, I looked around for what else I felt passionate about for a career. I suddenly remembered being 14 & telling my childhood friend that one day I was going to be a massage therapist. Then I promptly forgot about it until 2004 when I decided to go to massage school. Now I am very happy running my business & am definitely working 'in the flow'!
