Massage Envy (multiple locations) announced numerous award winners at its Annual Franchise Conference that was held in Orlando, FL, last month. This year, awards were presented to Ray Harrigill for franchise of the year; Kellie Schoon for therapist of the year; and Morgan Kagy for esthetician of the year. The winners were selected from the more than 1,150 Massage Envy franchise locations and the more than 25,000 professional massage therapists and estheticians employed throughout the company.
The winners were chosen based on their professionalism, client service, deliverance of total bodycare, and commitment to making the best of every body. “The most important people in our business are the therapists and estheticians who care for clients - and the franchise owners who care for them,” says Joe Magnacca, CEO of Massage Envy. “We are in the business of care, and that approach is transforming our industry. People like Ray, Kellie and Morgan are leading that change every day.”
Kagy, an esthetician from the Sacramento, CA region, has been with the Massage Envy brand for three years. Kagy was recognized regarding a relationship she formed with a special needs client who became a regular of Kagy’s, and though frequently non-verbal, would tell the franchise staff how much she enjoyed visiting Kagy. Schoon, a therapist from the Iowa/Nebraska region, has been with Massage Envy for eight years, and was recognized for her work with a client with chronic pain in her back and legs, who credited Schoon with saving her life, as her pain really decreased her quality of life prior to meeting Schoon.
Both Kagy and Schoon were recognized at the Annual Franchise Conference this year for the positive impacts they made on their client’s lives.
