Will this be your path to success?

"A few of my mom’s friends always said I was 'good with my hands.'  Before I began my education with IMI, I was a drop out who worked with my grandma at Alpine Cleaning Services. We started working at IMI and heard about the massage program, so I got my GED and enrolled. I’m now gaining knowledge every day in a field that I’m passionate about, and have also begun to help a few people unwind and relax their tension. After I graduate I’m considering working in a spa environment or working independently."
