Veteran Spotlight: Lindsey Tollefson

Lindsey joined the National Guard in 2014. Lindsey’s base is located out of Arden Hills, Minnesota and is part of the FRU (Force Ready Unit).

Lindsey has always wanted a career in Massage Therapy and enjoyed giving people massages in her free time.  Her husband told her to “go for it” so Lindsey began researching schools and came across Minnesota School of Cosmetology.  She chose Minnesota School of Cosmetology Plymouth because it offered a full time massage program.  She was able to start school and graduate in a short time frame while still fulfilling her duties in the National Guard.

Lindsey knew she would learn a lot in the Massage program but didn’t realize how much each and every body part plays a role in massage not only for the person receiving the massage but also what the body can do when giving a massage.  She has also learned how important massage can be to someone’s health and well being. 

Once Lindsey graduates she is excited to bring massage to her unit by doing chair massages after major workouts or even if they have some down time. She also plans to assist the safety NCO (Non Commissioned Officer).  One day, Lindsey plans to own her own Massage Therapy business.
