Portland, Oregon—November 15, 2010—Robin Barnette, ACHS Certificate in Aromatherapy graduate, has been named a 2011 Outstanding Graduate by the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC). The DETC is recognized by both the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) as an accrediting body, and conducts the “Outstanding Graduate” program annually. Students are selected for their academic record and the level and quality of their contribution to society and their chosen profession(s).
“We selected Robin for this recognition based on her academic success as an ACHS student, as well as her dedication to advancing the field of complementary alternative medicine,” says Dorene Petersen, President of the American College of Healthcare Sciences, one of the first accredited, fully online colleges offering degrees, diplomas, and career-training certificates in complementary alternative medicine.
As an aromatherapist, Robin educates clients one-on-one and in workshops about how to achieve optimal health naturally by incorporating good lifestyle choices and essential oils. She is the owner of Aromachick and offers Aroma-Yoga for Healing workshops in Calabasas, California, where she combines the therapeutic benefits of aromatherapy with the healing benefits of yoga. Robin also regularly publishes articles dedicated to educating and sharing the wonderful healing benefits of therapeutic essential oils.
Having experienced the healing benefits of essential oils first-hand, pursuing a Certificate in Aromatherapy from ACHS was a natural extension of her passion to share the healing benefits of essential oils with others, Robin says.
“Earning my Certificate in Aromatherapy from ACHS was a life changing experience,” Robin says. “ACHS helped me find my passion and follow my dreams!”
