What do you like to do when you're not working?

I love hiking and backpacking, especially when I get to do it with my family. I also like to read and spend time near the water.

Other than massage, what's the best or most interesting job you've had?

Before I became a massage therapist, I did public relations and marketing. Looking back, the most interesting job was working for a resort in the Florida Keys. The work was challenging, the view was always great and the environment was a lot of fun. For a while, my office was on a houseboat. I put together a press boat to go out and watch powerboat races every year. It was a lot of fun!

What is your favorite word or phrase?

“Argue for your limitations and you get to keep them.” It’s from “Illusions” by Richard Bach. I think it’s a good reminder that we grow as long as we’re open to it, and we keep trying.
