Student of the Month: Tammy Gast

Tammy has been chosen as our Student of the Month for May due to her exemplary scholarship as a student! Learn more about her and her motivations below. Congratulations, Tammy!

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

My two sons because they always believe in me and push me to go after my dreams! They have taught me unconditional love and that life has an everlasting purpose.

How did you become interested in becoming a massage therapist?

Honestly because I see the benefits that massage therapy has, and how good it can make anybody feel! I also chose this career path to work alongside my son Zac, who is studying to be a chiropractor! Together we want to keep people moving!

What led you to choose Central Maryland School of Massage as your massage therapy school?

I chose CMSM because of the accredited hours that would allow me to work in any state that I choose.

Name one thing you cannot live without.

My faith and peanut M-n-M’s! My faith brings me inner peace and M-n-M’s make everyone smile, right?!

Name one country you would love to visit.

Anywhere that my son Jordan will be stationed as a United States Marine! Oohrah!

Are you a dog or cat person? Or both or neither?

I love them both

State three adjectives that describe you:

Happy. Intuitive. Strong

What is your go-to song when you need to get motivated?

“Happy” by Pharrell Williams

Gets me dancing like nobody is watching every time!

What are your plans after graduating from massage therapy school?

My plans are to gain experience and knowledge in a spa setting and to also offer in-home traditional Swedish massage.
I plan to further my education to work with Veterans, Infants, Addiction Therapy, and Athletes. But most importantly, I want to make people feel good in their own skin!
Thank you! This is quite an honor and I am very appreciative!
