Karen feels the high standards expected of CCMH students prepare them for real life and ensure they excel when they begin working.
“Being a massage therapist is a career and way of life. It is a part of who you are. This career also allows you to attain skills you can transfer into other professions such as nursing, kinesiology, research, and more.”
Karen took the credits from her program at CCMH and obtained a Bachelor of General Studies - at age 51!
She is now completing a Bachelor of Health Sciences and has a goal of obtaining a social work degree to specialize her practice in working with those with post-traumatic stress disorder.
For Karen, the best thing about being a massage therapist is that she controls her future. She has her own clinic in Upper Tantallon, Nova Scotia, and is building a practice that fits her talents and skills.
