What or who inspires you? (Jenny)
I am continuously inspired by those whose quality of life has suffered and are in search of someone who cares, listens and validates their experiences. As a massage therapist, my cup is filled leaving people feeling better than when they arrived. I don’t take for granted that my hands and intentions help heal others.
Describe a time you felt like giving up. Why didn’t you? (Cindy)

Describe the person and provider you are striving to be. (Gina)
I strive to be a provider who consistently exceeds my patients’ expectations by providing them with one-on-one individualized care, ensuring I get to the source of their pain/problem and building a trusting relationship so I can be a reliable, consistent resource for them.

I continuously work to stay curious, listen and learn. To me, my clients are like little puzzles, and sometimes I have to think outside the box to figure out how to get their body to respond to treatment. This requires collaborating with other providers, taking courses and not being afraid to try something new or different.
