Elizabeth Picot grew up in Linden, NJ. She graduated from college with a Bachelors in Education. While looking for a teaching position, she took a course on massage therapy. It was at that point Liz realized how much she enjoyed the hands-on aspect of massage and the idea of helping people. She decided to become a certified massage therapist! To her, it seemed natural to pursue instructing as well. Becoming an instructor allowed Liz to mesh two things that she loves: teaching and massage.
Liz came to Rizzieri in June 2011, “I liked what the massage program offered and wanted to be a part of it.” Her favorite part of the job is the people – she enjoys the interactions with her co-workers and students. The most rewarding part of her job, Liz says, is watching the students grow in their technique and their confidence.
Liz offers this advice to potential students, “Massage therapy is a great field to be a part of with a growing number of opportunities within it. Being a massage student requires passion, dedication, and hard-work, but the reward at the end is indescribable.” Liz currently lives in Laurel Springs with her husband, Steve, daughter, Olivia, and their dog, Maggie.
