We had the good fortune of connecting with Lin Seeger and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Lin, we’d love to hear what makes you happy.
There are a lot of individual aspects of life that make me happy. The list could probably go on & on with the big stuff like my family & friends to the small things like smooth concrete & perfect skating weather. But none of that is what truly makes me happy. What makes me happy is my ability to be in the present moment & truly appreciate all of what this life experience has to offer. When you live with gratitude on your mind, you find happiness is easier to come by.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’ve gone down a few different paths when it comes to my career in massage therapy. Working with a chiropractor, resorts, & a mobile app all presented pros & cons. From those experiences, I learned the value of my time & my own worth. With burnout being so prevalent in this industry, I’m proud to say I still practice massage therapy. Hearing my clients relief after a massage appointment & having them recommend me to their friends makes it even more fulfilling.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Hiking at Lost Dutchman & Papago park would be on my list. Eating at Tacos Chiwas & Tocaya Modern Mexican would be necessary. If we wanted to eat more upscale, we’d go to Maple & Ash or Ocotillo. If they skate, we’d go to Tempe Sports Complex & KTR Chandler. If they didn’t skate but wanted to go for a bike ride, we could follow the green belt to Tempe Town Lake.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I wouldn’t be where or even who I am without the love & support of my husband, Brad.
