Christy Barnes is the founder and owner of Carpe Diem Massage in Tacoma’s Historic Stadium District. With spirit, ingenuity and determination Christy built her business from the ground up. She took her chance on a fresh start and opened Carpe Diem Massage in 1998 without a single client. 20 years later, Christy has transitioned from a practicing massage therapist to a very successful small business owner with 15 staff members. She has recently expanded her business to include a full service spa. Christy has built a loyal client base that has been with Carpe Diem since the beginning while continuously adding new ones to her thriving business.
Christy will share lessons learned, how she transitioned from being a practicing massage therapist to a boss and owner, and what it is like to be a small business owner in Tacoma right now!
