Tracie Livermore is AMTA’s Jerome Perlinski Teacher of the Year


AMTA is happy to announce that Tracie Livermore of the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (CA) is this year’s recipient of the Jerome Perlinski Teacher of the Year Award. Each year, AMTA presents this award to an instructor in an AMTA member school who demonstrates exceptional teaching abilities and commitment to high standards of education in massage therapy. This award honors the memory of Jerome Perlinski, an extraordinary educator and much loved leader.

Tracie has been on the faculty of PCOM since 2002 and was a faculty member at Mueller College of Holistic Studies from 2005-2011. In the words of one of her former students, “She is truly a gifted teacher, who genuinely cares about the health and wellbeing of her students long past the classroom. Tracie Livermore deserves to receive a huge thank you like this from the massage community, she is the voice for so many new and aspiring students, and her passion keeps our community bright and strong. ”  

Tracie will receive her award during the AMTA 2014 National Convention, to be held September 17-20 in Denver, Colorado. She will also be recognized during a celebration luncheon on Teachers Day Friday, September 19. Get more information on Teachers Day.
