What does Field and Stream and Massage Therapy have in common? It is La’ James International College student Megan Gillaspie from the Davenport campus.
“I am from North Carolina originally; I love photography and being outdoors hanging out with friends and family. I also love concerts and fishing!” Yes, before finding LJIC Megan worked for Field and Stream and was a CNA.
After graduating high school, a year and a half early and becoming a CNA, it opened her eyes to helping others and the doors to the health and wellness field. Megan soon discovered LJIC, “I chose LJIC because of the smaller class setting and I LOVED the way the school is setup. The spa is amazing I haven’t seen anything like the way it is set up. I also appreciate how helpful and attentive the instructors and staff had been for me.”
Megan plans to work as a LMT with hospice as well as in a spa setting like the Tuscany Day Spa at LJIC to build a client base and “eventually open my own luxury spa and have my own business.”
Megan’s Journey through LJIC has been smooth sailing so far; her advice for others looking to pursue a Massage Therapy career, “Don’t hesitate! Just do it! If you are able and you have the motivation then get ready for a very rewarding and in demand career!”
