Sara Sweesy, LMT
This month’s Graduate Corner spotlight is on Sara Sweesy, LMT. Sara graduated from our Vancouver campus 2 years ago and has been steadily growing in her professional career ever since graduation.
When we decided to launch a Vancouver massage school in 2016, it was to help people like Sara realize their dreams of becoming a massage therapist who strives to help people in pain every day.
Campus Manager, Chad Knowlden and School Owner, Shari Aldrich, surprised Sara last week at work with a few gifts and lunch for the chiropractors office she works at, Opdahl Chiropractic Clinic in Battle Ground, WA.
Today I was VERY surpised at work with a visit from
Shari Aldrich the
owner of Bodymechanics, where I went to
school and Chad Knowlden who was the main instructor I learned under.
They came in with food and presents and hugs, just to congratulate me as to how
wonderful I am doing in my career.
Thank you guys so much!!! It was such an appreciated gesture.
Opdahl Chiropractic Clinic
While there, we met with Monique Opdahl, office manager as well as Dr. Opdahl and several other staff and chiropractors. As the school owner, and someone who has tremendous pride in what we teach at Bodymechanics School, it was very rewarding to hear Monique call Sara a “master massage therapist” two years into her career.
One thing that Monique said to me that stood out, is how prepared Sara was at graduation to immediately step in and begin working on injured patients of their clinic. In fact, she received a massage from a new graduate the week prior and said the same thing about her massage – and is ready to bring on one of our current students to perform an externship program at Opdahl’s Chiropractic Clinic.
Sara is excelling in working with a variety of clients – from whiplash, to low back pain, to shoulder pain. I had the opportunity to speak with Sara recently when she came to the school for an evaluation of our current students.
She was thrilled to be working in a setting she loved, helping people feel better. She had a smile from ear-to-ear when she shared her love for her massage career.
Bodymechanics School Professional Relationships
Bodymechanics School thrives off a dynamic relationship with many clinics and spas in the communities we serve. One thing that we really appreciate is an office that is always ready to help our program when needed – whether for employment opportunities, classroom activities, vendor or employment fairs, or graduate panels.
It is not lost on me how well Opdahl’s Chiropractic Clinic works with our Vancouver campus. They are always ready to show up and this makes our program stronger. It helps our graduates succeed – whether they work for them or go a different direction.
While there, Chad asked Monique if they were able to participate in our upcoming school fair on June 15, 2019 from 10 am – 2 pm. This relationship is one that we appreciate!
We are proud of Sara and her accomplishments. Her dedication to her profession is inspiring. We are your big cheerleaders!
