I was the Director of Massage Therapy Services at Duke Integrative Medicine, where I started the program from inception and I was the Business and Marketing Instructor at the Body Therapy Institute in NC for 3 years. The two primary classes that I teach are: Integrating Mind Body Skills into Your Massage Practice & The Art and Soul of a Practice: A creative approach to success. Both are currently 1 day, 7 CE classes
I'm attaching my fliers for my upcoming mind body class in Baltimore in June as a reference for you about my work and also the description for the creative business class. I'm very passionate about creating a work/life that comes from a place of purpose and passion and in the classroom I love fostering that development in both new massage therapists and seasoned, reminding them that "anything is possible!".
Will you let me know if this might meet a need at VC?
