Tell us a little about your backround, educatiuon and experience: I have a bachelor’s degree in community health education from the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse. That really sparked my interest in preventative and alternative therapies. From there I attended the Boulder College of Massage Therapy and have been practicing a wide variety of massage techniques for the past nine years. I studied at the Concentric Healing Institute in Boulder to receive my education in holistic skin care and now am a licensed Esthetician.
What’s the most humorous thing that has happened since your business opened? My first business call was for a birthday party ” for 15 to 20 four-year-olds! That really threw me for a loop because I had to make some serious adjustments to my party packages.
