Graduate Corner: Katie Fitch, LMP
For our Graduate Corner, I asked Katie Fitch, LMP to share her experience since graduating from Bodymechanics School in 2007. Katie is a seasoned massage therapist and has worked in many states. Today, Katie is the Kinesiology instructor at our Vancouver massage therapy school campus.
Here is Katie’s Story
I was asked by Alaska Missions to volunteer to do massage on the mushers that crossed the finish line after a
1,040 mile trip from Anchorage to Nome at the annual Iditerod Sled Dog Race each March. It was an exciting opportunity not only to perform massage on very needy mushers and athletes but also to be able to work on 1 of the lead dogs that had a tricep problem. Muscle is muscle right? It was so interesting to hear their stories of their trip through the wilderness often times in 60 degrees below zero. I still go up every year to Nome to work on them. It’s really exciting.
“Many of life’s failures are individuals who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” (Pastor John Hagee). Work hard, keep going and realize your dream. I did and couldn’t be happier. It’s so exciting to be a part of something big.I look forward to meeting with you soon at our Vancouver campus!
