KRAVE’s growth has been such a humbling experience. At first, my goal was simply to help Brookings community members through the benefits of massage therapy. I am truly amazed and blessed by the endless opportunities that continue to be revealed. Daily inspiration abounds when I think of the lives that my team has touched and changed for the better, whether through physical massage, a compassionate shoulder, or the introduction of the amazing benefits of our new products. My sincere thanks to the community where I was born and raised…and where I choose to grow my personal and professional family.
