With excitement (and a bit of a heavy heart) we said bon voyage, farewell, see ya later (anything but goodbye) and happy retirement(!) to Suzanne this Friday afternoon. After 31 amazing and healing years as a Registered Massage Therapist, Suzanne has decided now is the time to hang up her RMT hat and move on to new adventures. We are counting on her returning to Broadway Wellness for lots of visits, and perhaps the odd locum shift? … we can hope!
Suzanne started off what blossomed into a truly extraordinary career as an RMT, in part due to an instance of coincidence up at SFU in the early 1980s. A friend mentioned that massage therapy might be a great path for her, and then subsequently stumbled upon an article on massage therapy in a local magazine. What were the chances that this would come up out of the blue.. twice! She decided to inquire about schooling at the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy, and the rest is history. Her career took her on a journey from Ontario back out to BC where she ran her own clinic in North Burnaby. Suzanne has also graced the communities in Coquitlam and North Vancouver with her therapeutic hands before joining us at Broadway Wellness.
Retirement holds infinite possibilities for Suzanne as another journey unfolds before her! Initially, she wants to take some well deserved time to read, rest, relax and refresh, but there are lots of plans in the works! Suzanne has plans to venture back to school and complete her Bachelors of Arts from SFU, continue to study body and energy work as it truly is her passion, run, bicycle, and see all the beautiful places that this world has to offer! She’ll also, of course, continue as an active and involved member of the Burnaby community.
We will all miss having Suzanne in the clinic regularly, but wish her all the best in this next chapter- filled with good health, happiness, fond memories of an outstanding career, and great new memories in the making. Here’s to Suzanne!
