Graduate Spotlight: Externship Leads to Job for Massage Therapy Grad

At this quarter’s Globe University-Madison graduation, several graduates will be walking across the stage having already accepted positions in their field. One of them is massage therapy graduate Caroline Allen.

While at Globe, Caroline excelled as a student earning Student of the Month as well as Student of the Year and now graduating with honors.  In her final quarter Caroline completed her massage therapy externship at A-Glo Spa and Salon in Janesville, Wisconsin. In Caroline’s second week at her externship, her supervisor was already talking to her about hiring her on as a massage therapist.

Caroline is excited to make a difference in people’s lives by making them feel better. Her goal as a massage therapist is to alleviate their pain for the long term so they can enjoy life.

Caroline’s Advice for Other Students

Absolutely take Medical Terminology. It is essential and will make your job much much easier. Put your all into this. Work hard for the time that you are in school so that you can truly enjoy your career and are not playing catch-up after graduation. Be proud and toot your own horn.

Caroline’s Inspiration

I have continually been inspired by my instructors Brett Kammerer, Robin Rinehart and Laura Jeske, as well as other graduates like Amy Lang, David VanSchyndel and Flutura Hajdini. I sincerely look up to them all and hope to be as good as they are. They truly have the compassion and love for the job that I feel so strongly as well.

I feel absolutely blessed to have attended Globe University-Madison East. I feel like I was completely taken care of by all of the staff, from the time I called about my interest in Globe right through to graduation day. I can only hope that my children’s teachers and staff are half as helpful and motivating as mine were. My instructors continue to be a huge inspiration to me and really set the bar high. I just can’t say enough how organized, helpful and caring everyone was. I was never rushed or panicked. They really set me up for success.

“Caroline consistently pushes to be her best and it shows in her massage skills,” said Massage Therapy Program Chair Robin Rinehart. “She has stayed focused on her end goal throughout school. It has paid off in her externship turning into her first massage therapy job. I am excited to see where her new career takes her in the future.”
