Q & A
  • Why did you choose your major? 

    I knew that I wanted to do something that could help people, and massage therapy looked like a great way to do that!

  • What advice would you give to students interested in your career path?
    Don’t wait. Massage therapy is growing quickly and it offers so much diversity in all of the different directions you can take your career.
  • What was your overall experience at ACM?
    It was amazing! Everybody was so kind and helpful from my first day walking into the Everett campus to the day I graduated from the main campus. They really seemed to take an interest in the future of the individual. 
  • Who was your favorite ACM faculty/staff member?  Why?
    That’s impossible to choose! All of my teachers were so unique in so many different ways. They each had such a passion for what they were teaching that it made it exciting to keep coming back and learning more!
  • What is your greatest achievement in your career?
    I would have to say that my greatest achievement so far is the progress I’ve made with one client in particular. I’ve seen such drastic changes through our sessions together that it’s really eye-opening to see the impact that regular massage can have on a person. 
  • Additional comments:
    I would really like to point out once again how kind the faculty and staff were to me. I was amazed how quickly they learned my name, my major, my future goals, and really seemed to take an interest in seeing me succeed. They all showed such great support and it was truly a blessing.
