Employee Spotlight: Abigail Carpenter LE, RP, LMT

Abigail Carpenter LE, RP, LMT is CMSM’s Director of Admissions. She helps incoming students figure out their path for their exciting new future…and how to get there!



How long have you been working at CMSM?

I have been an employee since March of 2016 and a student for 7 of those months!

What would you tell someone who is considering massage therapy school?

Do it! Live in the now and pursue something you’re passionate about! After all, you have the rest of your life to get to!

Name one person who has had an impact on your life and explain why:

Tommis, my best friend (and coincidentally, my husband). Cheesily, he makes me want to be a better person (or maybe that’s because I’m so competitive?). And never underestimate the power of laughter!

What is your favorite thing about working at Central Maryland School of Massage and why?

I love seeing students get that spark of “I’m so glad I did this- this is where I need to be”.

Vacation…beach, woods, desert, or mountains?

All of them! I honestly just enjoy traveling anywhere!

Favorite meal?

Mexican and Thai food are tied for first!

Favorite quote?

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.” -Buddha

Describe your most significant interaction with a client or student:

I think there isn’t one specific interaction, so much as all the different interactions I have with students between their admissions process and the time they’re about done with the program. To watch them grow and sometimes, become a completely different person, is so fascinating to me!
