Janell Erickson

I have been working at SWIHA since 2011 and SWINA since 2020. At SWINA, I am currently the Career Services Specialist for graduates as they exit the program and seek placement in the field.

I graduated from SWIHA in 2011 with an Associate Degree in Advanced Bodywork with specialties in Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Holistic Nutrition, Polarity APP and Toe Reading. In 2012 I finished the Massage Therapy 1000 hr program and am an active licensed massage therapist. I also completed the Clinical Hypnotherapy program, Traditional and Shamanic Reiki, Life Coaching and dabbled in Yoga and Western Herbalism. As a career specialist, I love helping students and graduates focus on their journey to empower them and offer support as they step into their new found passion for aesthetics and laser services. I make connections with local employers to help find wonderful places for our graduates to work and have also found that multiple employers seek out SWINA graduates due to the skillsets they have right out of school. It is an honor to serve our amazing graduates!

Marissa Newel

I have been with SWIHA for almost 8 years (will be 8 years in October), my first position was working in Financial Aid and prescreening our prospective students. I have been working with our Online Graduates for the past three and a half years doing exits and placements. While working at SWIHA I have taken aromatherapy, mindfulness and guided imagery facilitator courses, emotional freedom technique, and most recently the life coaching certificate of excellence. This has given me the tools to help provide coaching to our online graduates.
