Meet Faces of Parkland

Kelsey Frieden

Kelsey Frieden
Hometown: Champaing
Major: Massage Therapy
Interests: Dreams of running her own business.

One important lesson Kelsey Frieden has learned since coming to Parkland College is that bigger isn’t always better.

“Small classes are the best classes,” says the Massage Therapy major from Champaign, who counts among her favorite moments being accepted into the program.  Kelsey and other students train in labs, small classrooms, and a variety of off-campus settings in order to pass the national certification exam and apply for state licenses as massage therapists.

With dreams of running her own massage business, Kelsey takes hold of her mantra: “study, study, study!” and pushes through her courses, which she expects to complete by August 2014. Meanwhile, she has nothing but praise for the program. “My professors and all great; they have a genuine care for the students,” she said. “Parkland is really a great school.”
