Good afternoon. I wanted to take a moment today to personally thank you for the opportunity The Gorilla Grant I was awarded provided me. I completed my SAMP100 practical this past Saturday with a 97! You have an excellent team in Sandy, Lori, Jaime and Rubi. Each one of them helped me get to where I am today. I’m so excited about my future and the great things that I can do for the small animals in my community! I hope to honor your Gorilla and my Peatie with every special soul I come in contact with.   Thanks again for everything!   Margaret Taormina, CSAMP

I found the instructors to be excellent at demonstrating and explaining information.  By the time I went to the practical session, I felt very prepared.

I just had to email to tell you how IMPRESSED I was with how you set-up, arranged and taught Level 300.  It was interesting, fun, interactive and varied in teaching styles.  Kudos! I could see all of the hard work, organization and love you put into this class.  You highly exceeded my expectations.  Not only did I learn alot, but it was interesting AND I had FUN!  You should be very, very proud!

I am very impressed with this program and will recommend it to anyone interested in this field.  I look forward to continuing my education through the Northwest School of Animal Massage.

~ Lyndsey Durning — Small Animal graduate

Open and accessible instructors!  Great variety of techniques! Very patient and non-judgemental.  Promotes student success.

~ PT Reap — Large Animal graduate

Everyone at the school made me feel so special and so important. They went out of their way to make sure students succeeded. I can’t thank them enough for giving my life new found joy and a feeling of doing something so special and important in this crazy world. Thank you to Lola and all her staff at NWSAM.
