About Us

Monarch Consulting and Education: Created to Fill a Growing Need

Monarch Continuing Education was established when more trained lymphatic therapists became necessary due to an excess of under-served lymphatic therapy patients.  Qualified allied health professionals in the areas of oncology rehab and related wound care were also in high demand.

Our mission is to educate and support healthcare workers and professionals by providing lymphatic therapy to their patients, thus improving their ability to serve and change lives in their own community.


Corporate and Start-up coaching is available in other industry sectors as well.
