Sharin was a lifelong learner and earned her High School Diploma by examination in 1983 in the State of Alaska. In 1989, Sharin graduated from Heida Brenikee School of Massage in Seattle, WA. Sharin was an entrepreneur and had a vision and dream. She attended Green River Community College in Auburn, WA, and took Masterclasses in Women's leadership. This knowledge transformed her massage skills into a marketable business opportunity. Sharin opened Ten Essentials Spa in Renton, WA in 1990 and was the owner and operator until 1996.
