Here is a little Q and A with our Salty of the Month.
Q1. What is your background, and how did you get into Massage Therapy?
I’ve had a variety of careers but have always been drawn to Health and Fitness. The short story on my career...I needed a massage and ended up going to school!!!
Q2. From the many conversations we've had, you remind me of the do it all Hello Dolly. Why don't you tell me about all of your exciting side projects and maybe the ones you love working on best.
Lol! How much space do you have in this column?!? Yes I do love all my jobs...I’m a licensed massage therapist, Certified Personal Trainer, Jazzercise Instructor, Pop Up Fitness Event Coordinator, Professional Organizationalist (presently doing two major organizing jobs for two offices!), and I work at Jazz Fest as an Exchequer. I can only pick one I love...? I can’t, I love them all!
Q3. You have a unique lung condition, can you tell me about it for the interview? How did it happen, what kind of symptoms were you experiencing pre and post halotherapy.
I had a serious situation with pneumonia/pleurisy. I had it for 3 weeks before it was diagnosed because I thought i just had a pulled muscle. It was so bad, I had one lung completely full of fluid and only 1/3 of air space in my other lung. The aftermath I deal with now is what I call ‘Sticky Lung’...the lower lobe is weak and it feels like it sticks. Halotherapy has been a godsend! I’m not big on having to take meds because of side effects. Halotherapy provers me the relief I need with no bad effects, only great results!
Q4. What is the plural form of moose?
as much as I would love to say it is Meese, I was taught at a very young age that it always had been and always will be, Moose!
