Meet Beatrice Kennin, LMT
Updated: Jul 25, 2020
Some people find their career while other people have just the opposite experience: their career finds them.
Such is the case with MMT massage therapist Beatrice Kennin.
“I always wanted to help people and make people feel better,” she said.
Initially, Beatrice took a different path and her first career was that of a hairdresser, but it wouldn’t be for long. Though she enjoyed the work, she realized it wasn’t exactly the right fit for her.
“In addition to wanting to help people, I always thought I would enjoy working in health care, in some form or another,” she added.
But many jobs in health care require years and years of education and training, which was not feasible for Beatrice, who has two young daughters who keep her quite busy. It was then that she realized that massage therapy checked all the boxes in what she wanted in a career. She went back to school at the Institute of Beauty and Wellness. She received her license and joined MMT in September.
“I really liked learning about massage therapy and then coming here and learning from Peter,” she said. “It’s a great place to work and it’s the health-care setting I was looking for.”
She enjoys working with the team of Dr. Jeff, Dr. Jake and Peter, and often provides massage services to patients as part of their chiropractic appointments. Of course, she’s also available for individual massage appointments to current and new clients.
As a massage therapist, it’s very important for Beatrice to engage with her clients to see how she can best help them in their massages. After all, it all goes back to her original goal: She simply likes to help people.
