“What I like most about my career is that it my passion and not my work. I enjoy every moment of owning my own business; the flexibility I have and the freedom it provides me. It is very gratifying to be able to touch a life, a body, and a person making a difference in how their body and mind feel.”

In Her Words:

“My education at Soma gave me the ability to be self-employed and self-sufficient. Shortly after my graduation from the program, I began looking for a space to open my own business. Within 3 months, I was seeing my own clients in my own business, Evolve Spa. We are thrilled with the volume of repeat clients, who rave about the fact that our massage is superior and more thorough then other treatments they have experienced. Soma has given me the edge over my competitors.”

Career obstacles:

“I overcame huge obstacles in order to be here, including a spouse who neither supported my career choice nor wanted to pay for my education. Soma offered a student loan program that made a portion of my education possible. It changed my life for the better and made me happy to be able to be a Clinical Massage Therapist, because with my background in healthcare, I truly have a passion for treating people- and now I am able to do what I love everyday.”
