A bit about me
I am a sales and marketing gal currently enjoying working and living in the wonderful world of massage therapy. I am a licensed massage therapist in the great state of Massachusetts. My career prior to massage was as a sales and marketing director in various internet and telecommunications companies. Kids grew up, started moving out (and the telecom market crashed!) and I took a sharp left turn-into Ben Benjamin's Muscular Therapy Institute in Cambridge MA. I love working as a massage therapist, but even as I was working in some swanky resorts on Cape Cod, I couldn't stop selling retail products to my clients in the reception area! I now have the best of both worlds-I am working as a marketing and new media consultant with some clients in the massage therapy profession and am honored to support them with their marketing efforts.
I am also a member of and serve the American Massage Therapy Association as the 3rd VP and chair of the Massachusetts Chapter website committee and will serve as a 2009 Massachusetts Delegate to the 2009 national AMTA conference, where I will be presenting a Position Statement to the 2009 House of Delegates. I am also pleased to serve the Massage Therapy Foundation as a member of the Community Service Review Committee and the newly formed Marketing Committee.
I look forward to learning, connecting and contributing to this exciting new portal!

Coupled with the fact that 45% of women and 21% of men reported receiving a massage within the last five years, the projected rise in demand for massage therapist certainly seems to make sense.
