My background has been mostly working for non-profits in the Coulee Region, so I really enjoy the fact that the massage therapy program is able to help local non-profits and the populations they serve by donating money through chair massage events.

What bit of advice would you share with the Globe University-La Crosse Students?

Try to always see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Receiving your degree in higher education is such a remarkable achievement, but it takes a lot of work and also takes motivation to get the job done.  Always know that you are never on this journey by yourself.  Globe has such an inviting atmosphere and the faculty and staff are encouraging and extremely helpful.  Reach out to fellow students and faculty when that light seems to dim.  We want to help and see you reach your goal.
