On May 12, 2012 at 1:56 pm, Dianne Polseno left us. We have lost a dear colleague and icon in the massage industry. I have known Dianne for more than 20 years. Our first real “encounter” was when we had to share a room in San Antonio when writing test questions for the NCBTMB. What began as a tentative reluctance, quickly turned into a deep respect. By the end of that weekend is was as if we had been friends for years. I have had the privilege to be her colleague and worked with her in co-facilitating an ethics workshop and collaborated on writing.
Her sister Gail wrote on Caring Bridge that Dianne wanted us to know that she has “gone fishing.” I’ve always admired her tenacity and sense of humor. Even if you never had the opportunity to meet this fireball, I’m sure she has impacted your life.
