My name is Marybeth Whitman. I am a native to Tupper Lake NY. After graduating from  Tupper Lake High School in 1970 I attended SUNY Plattsburgh  seeking a career in education. However, I decided that was not the path I wanted to be on at that time. 

I moved to Long Island NY and enrolled at Wilfred Beauty Academy to study Cosmetology in Selden NY. I graduated  and became licensed to practice in New York State in November 1977 and moved back to my home area to pursue my career in Beauty.

I practiced for 22 years in Plattsburgh  in my field - eventually owning and operating my very successful beauty salon there for 10 years. While living there , I enjoyed the beauty of the area and spent my free time exploring and learning the history of the Lake Champlain Area . I also spent much time traveling throughout the US and Europe , seeking and attending educational seminars relative to my work, too numerous to list.

In July 1998, I moved back to Tupper Lake New York with my family to be closer to my aging Mother and family. I started working that year at the prestigious 4 Diamond Resort , Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa .  My work there included both Salon and Spa treatments specializing in Massage therapy , Body Treatments, and Skin care. Our local community college North Country Community College was adding Massage Therapy Program to their curriculum so I enrolled and completed the 2 year program earning an AAS degree thus becoming licensed to practice massage therapy  in New York and again have traveled throughout the US for many seminars to continue my educational growth in my field. The modalities I offer include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Stone Therapy, Craniosacral Therapy, Thai massage (table / floor), Pregnancy massage, Reflexology, Bellanina Facelift Massage, Lymphatic Drainage techniques.

I am a Health Coach for Take Shape for Life fueled by Medifast. My website for information : This program is medically supervised by Dr Wayne Anderson; founder /director to establish Habits for Health.

I am currently retired from the Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa after 16.5 years of service. I spend time with my 3 children  Jacob, Janelle, Jordan and my Granddaughter Chanelle . I enjoy this beautiful area - my home -- and all it offers. Nowadays, I may be found hiking ,camping, swimming, canoeing - or just sitting quiet listening to nature ;  my most meditative activity !
