What do you do?
Where do you work and what is your title?
ReVibe Pilates & Bodywork. I’m a part-owner and massage therapist. I also am an instructor in the massage therapy program at IntelliTec Medical Institute.
What do you do there and/or what are you responsible for?
I do whatever my wife, Trish tells me to do! But really, besides the typical daily operations, I'm fortunate to provide a range of modalities including, neuromuscular, craniosacral, aromatherapy, and deep-tissue massage therapies.
How long have you been doing this kind of work (total)? How long on the Westside?
A total of 18 years in practice, and seven years teaching. Revibe just had its first anniversary here on the Westside in May.
What do you like best about it (other than quitting time)?
I've fulfilled one of my long time goals of owning a healthcare business. The patrons are amazing, I enjoy helping their bodies to heal.
If you could change one thing (other than pay), what would it be?
Well, our building has been getting terribly hot during these summer days, so if I could snap my finger and make air conditioning magically appear....
What part of your work did your training/education never prepare you for?
Business! It's one thing to learn how to provide quality healing touch, and quite another to manage the many facets of a successful business. I dedicate a tremendous amount of time to this for my students so that they can be successful.
What makes working on the Westside special?
The people! And the uncomplicatedness of the Westside, it's an enjoyable experience coming to work every day over here.
