Know Our Instructors


Director of Education and Lead Instructor

Jan is the Director of Education and Lead Instructor at CRSMT. She is a licensed massage therapist and registered nurse. She teaches western massage techniques and hydrotherapy classes, and is our Clinic Supervisor. She’s also a CRSMT alumna. She has always felt passionate about helping people, especially helping people with their healing journey. Jan first pursued this passion as an emergency room nurse. In that role she received specialized training including becoming a Trauma Nurse Specialist, teaching the Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course, and training to become a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner. After 15 years in the emergency room, she was ready for a change but still wanted to help people. She has been receiving bodywork since the age of 11 and knows firsthand the power it has to change someone’s life. She found CRSMT and fell in love with the school and Costa Rica. Jan is delighted to be back at the school, offering a unique perspective as someone who’s, “been there,” and knows what wonderful things happen when you follow the school’s advice and, “trust the process!”
