Jasmine Fleming was all smiles as she gowned up with her fellow graduands on Convocation day, November 1.
Jasmine started the Massage Therapy Diploma in September 2011 and is already working as a Registered Massage Therapist in a chiropractic practice in Coach Hill.
“I consider massage therapy to be an important part of people’s overall health, a preventative measure to add to their wellness. I chose a medical atmosphere over a spa environment to set up my practice,” Jasmine said.
She chose the MRU Massage Therapy program after taking a couple of years in a nursing program and working in a care home.
The Faculty of Continuing Education and Extension had 28 students cross the stage at Convocation, receiving their parchments from Dean Charles Webber. In all, there were 62 Continuing Education students graduating from full-time programs this year.
In addition to the Massage Therapy program, there were graduates from the Funeral Service Education programs, Personal Fitness Trainer, and the Transitional Vocational Programs’ Employment Preparation Program for adults with developmental disabilities.
Congratulations – you make us proud!
