After earning her degree in Clinical Exercise Science from VCU she taught kinesiology at University of Richmond for several years before moving on to teach at her alma mater, the Lotus Professional College.  While teaching there she met fellow educator and therapist Kristin Gaulin which inspired Lela to build a team of experienced massage therapists that could work together to provide focused treatment for athletes and people managing chronic conditions.
