As an instructor, Kimberly makes learning informative, professional and motivating while providing personalized attention for each student. Her dedication to her profession inspired the desire to teach continuing education locally that is both convenient and affordable for massage therapists. And equally important to provide relevant and useful course criteria that can be readily applied to their own practice to empower their own success.

In the past eleven years that she has practiced massage locally, it has been difficult to find continuing education courses that were relevant, affordable and applicable to her own business. The desire to provide these types of ce courses was the driving force behind her applying to become an approved provider for continuing education. The dedication to our profession and the commitment to empowering other massage therapists to succeed while avoiding burnout or injury were key components to her taking the steps to share her knowledge and expertise in the field of massage therapy.

SUCCESSFUL MASSAGE MARKETING IN TODAY'S ENVIRONMENT   3ce for $75
RALEIGH - TBA
          

This three hour business course is designed to assist in marketing your massage business competitively and successfully, focusing online to attract new clients and increase business. "In 2009, I completely retooled my website and began these new strategies which yielded over 375 new clients in 2010 and over 550 new clients in 2011. My new website was launched in the fall of 2009 and started with 700 hits per week, which I thought was great. Currently a slow week for business is the result of less than 7000 hits per week. July 2012 my website averaged over 12,000 hits per week which translated into more clients than we had available appointments. If you are interested in expanding your clientele by using today's technology, this is the strategy that has proven successful for me."
