My Background

Anne realized the importance of hands on Massage Therapy after several years of study of Jazz and Ballet both in Victoria BC at Spectrum Dance circus and Pineapple Studios in London, England. As a physio and occupational therapy assistant at the Victoria General Hospital Gerontology Institute Anne was able to save up for her Massage Therapy education. Anne hopped, all the way from BC in her trusty Rabbit to Ontario to get her MT education at the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy.  When Anne graduated and became a full member of Registered Massage Therapist Association of Ontario (formerly OMTA) as well as having written and passed both the Ontario Board Exams, and as a native of British Columbia, the BC board exams. In 1993, Anne had massaged her way through Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Toronto by studying Philosophy, Sociology, Psychology, Women Studies, and Film. Anne’s many years of boardroom experience began at University of Toronto with her position on their Film Board, Camera Club and Executive Committee at Hart House. In 1995, Anne joined the newly formed Toronto Chapter of the OMTA and became the Treasurer and with a group of RMT’s began development of Massage.ca website.  In 1997, Anne was invited onto the RMTAO board of directors and accepted the position of Secretary; she held this position until 2002, when she accepted the interim Vice President position. During this time, Anne’s focus was on getting the infrastructure in place for the development of the current RMTAO online presence.
