Registered Massage Therapist
What made you want to become a massage therapist?
Ali- I did not always know I wanted to be a massage therapist. After working a few different jobs, I found that what I always enjoyed the most about any job was interacting and helping people. I looked into the Massage Therapy program because of my interest in biology and how the body works and it just seemed like a perfect fit for me!
Where did you go to school?
Ali- I took my massage training at MacEwan University
What is your favorite part of working at 3 Leaf?
Ali- The staff and the atmosphere. 3 Leaf has the most welcoming and comforting feeling to it, the staff and surroundings make it a place that's hard to call "work".
What is your favorite quote?
Ali- "Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live"-Dorothy Thompson
What is your favorite sports team?
Ali- The Oilers. Even though I grew up playing basketball, I always enjoyed watching hockey. And being from the Edmonton area, I can't not support our team!
What inspires you?
Ali- People who are happy and have mastered living life to the fullest. Nowadays you hear so often how people are unhappy with work, relationships, etc. that when I talk to somebody who loves what they do for a living, is happy for what they have whether it is a lot or a little, and has a positive outlook on life, it is a breath of fresh air and inspires me to be the same way
