Author & Licensed Massage Therapist
Hi, I’m Katrina!
I’ve been part of the team at Moyer Total Wellness since the summer of 2017, and it’s the homiest job I’ve ever had. So homey, I refused to stop working there even after I relocated to California in 2020. While I can no longer offer massage therapy at the office, I do still write weekly blogs for the website. Writing is kind of my favorite thing to do, aside from being a massage therapist of course! I guess one could say I haven’t actually worked in years; I’ve just been having fun!
Though I enjoy my massage therapy career and plan on being one for the rest of forever, I also have experience with nursing and teaching. I received a Bachelor’s in Health Science in 2013, with a concentration in Community Health Education. Throughout college, I worked as a nurse’s aide, while also being an unpaid intern who taught awkward health classes. I don’t regret either of those experiences, as my disappointments often provide great writing material, but I found that I disliked both nursing and standing at the front of a classroom. (I was too attached to my patients, and middle schoolers are terrifying.) That being said, I knew I still wanted to work in healthcare. And I wanted to keep teaching too… I just didn’t like looking people in the face while doing so.
For me, that’s the beauty of writing blogs for Moyer Total Wellness! I get to combine my passions for health, education, and writing all at once; but nobody has to hear my obnoxious Baltimore accent when I deliver the info! Some of my favorite works are “What are the Benefits of CBD?” and “The Stiff Neck – Causes, Prevention, and Treatment”. Take a look at those for some enlightenment and a warm chuckle!
