Helping Ashely find success in dentistry

“In high school, I knew that I wanted to be in the medical field, but didn’t want to go through years of school,” Ashely recalled. After exploring some options, she decided that massage therapy was the right place for her. Her deeply religious family didn’t think that a career as a masseuse was a suitable choice. Once her mom experienced her first massage, she realized that her daughter’s work was healing people.

Ashley loved her career as a massage therapist and had no intention of leaving. However, in her ninth year as a masseuse, she developed arthritis in her hands, which affected her productivity and the number of clients she could treat.

In her early 30s, health concerns forced Ashley to quit work. The arthritis symptoms disappeared shortly after.
