Joni moved from South Central Kansas to the KC Area and has so far enjoyed a variety of things about it including the school districts and watching live music. Alongside being a WellSpring Student, Joni loves going to concerts, being with her kids, dirt track races, reading fiction books and quilting.
Joni’s awareness of the potential benefits of massage therapy in nursing homes arose while formerly as a CNA, This spark led to Joni’s decision to pursue massage therapy. With the majority of her interest in learning the business and medical side of massage, Joni has a goal of working with massage in the medical field as well as eventually running her own massage clinic.
“Initially,” Joni said, “I was cautious of applying at WellSpring because I did not want to be the oldest person in my classes, but then I got on the website and saw both older and younger people being featured and it made me more comfortable about applying.”
Joni loves the diversity in age and ethnicity that WellSpring offers because it provides a richer and more realistic learning environment that is essential to massage therapists’ training as well as “the fact that everybody has a different story, a different background, yet everyone here shares the same ultimate goals”.
