"You just gotta listen to your heart, to what you feel like you want to do to make you happy, and that’s been probably the best thing I’ve learned in this adventure" - Andree-Anne Rusaw, RMT, RVT.
Andree-Anne Rusaw has been a Registered Massage Therapist since 2010 and struggled initially with the idea of being self-employed with unstable income and wondered how it would give her the life she envisioned. With guidance from her family she pursued her passion to work with animals and started a second career as a Registered vet tech. She is now a teacher with College Boreal and travels to volunteer her skills with animals in need. Andree-Anne also loves to travel for fun and has been to all 7 continents and she has visited a total of 25 countries before she has even turned 30. She has come full circle to realize that she has the dream job as a massage therapist with above average income potential, flexibility to take time off, and the freedom to alter her schedule. She is more open to live in the moment and see how life unfolds instead of setting specific timelines for her life goals. Please enjoy this episode with Andree Anne Rusaw!

* A note from Andree-Anne about volunteering or visiting animal sanctuaries: If organizations offer up close hands on selfie opportunities with wild animals, they more than likely are a breeding centre and it is not safe and healthy for the animals. It is not a true sanctuary. Id recommend not visiting places that offer that and find sanctuaries that only offer viewings of the animals. When it comes to volunteering, any places that you can clean enclosures or food prep, enrichment for the animals without direct contact are usually better. Please do your research.
