I lived in Pennsylvania and worked as an Orthodontist Clinician, interacting with many patients a day. When I moved to Virginia, however, I became a Dental Technician and my interaction with patients was limited to coworkers and the occasional provider. I missed communicating with patients and the day-to-day interactions, so I decided to pursue massage therapy. I had known about the field for a while, and started to seriously learn more about its impact on individual’s lives. After beginning school, I knew it was my calling. I appreciate how I’m able to easily help people without medicine.
The most rewarding part of my job is the ability to help others. I also enjoy educating my clients and assisting them in achieving their goals — whether that’s helping them perform a simple task like buckling their seat belt or something bigger like increasing the range of motion for an athlete before a big game.
I really enjoyed the professionalism and comprehensive approach of the team; everyone works together to return patients to their active lifestyles.
Professional and friendly — (hey, that’s two!)
My first day went by so quickly because everyone was having fun; I was able to offer massages to clients and coworkers, which I didn’t expect, and I met so many people within the company that were friendly and welcoming.
