I was frequently asked by my clients: “What mattress should I be sleeping on?” I began to research mattresses and sleep. I wanted to use my expertise as a massage therapist, relieving people’s pain, to find a mattress that also gave them comfort and pain relief.

What do you do? 

As a licensed massage therapist, I used my 25 years of experience to relieve people's pain and discomfort in their bodies. I want my clients to further improve their health with a better nights’ sleep.  Based on my clients’ needs and feedback, I developed and sell a hybrid mattress.

What's special about your business? 

I’m the only health care professional with a line of sleep products. Understanding the individual needs of my clients, provides me with the insight into what type of mattress would best meet those needs. This design ensures firm support, while still being adaptable to the unique body shape of the sleeper.

What is your relationship with SCORE? 
SCORE client
How SCORE helped. 

Once I had my idea in place, my website up and running, I needed help taking it from there.  SCORE helped me organize my thoughts and put a plan in place for my business.  With my Mentor John Sonnhalter’s help, I have learned how to communicate with manufacturers to get my business off the ground in ways I didn’t know before. I’ve been a massage therapist all my life, so I didn’t know the ins and outs of business. John has given me countless ideas on how to market my business and has really helped me navigate the business world.

What's great about my mentor? 

John is always positive and has a creative solution to a problem, or a fresh idea.

What would you tell a fellow business owner about SCORE? 

Getting a mentor from SCORE is my number one piece of advice. I mentioned this recently in a podcast I was on. A mentor will help you tie everything together!
