McGuire is equally eager to spread her love outside the family, as well. “I work with the Look Good ... Feel Better program sponsored by the American Cancer Society, and I volunteer each Friday at the oncology unit of the Cape Cod Hospital, administering hand, foot and shoulder massage to patients there,” she says. “It is so fulfilling and rewarding. Many of the patients keep in touch, and we have become friends and share lunches and beach walks after their treatment.”

And although she recently broke her pelvis in two places while doing volunteer work, she was as eager as ever to return to the spa, planning open house parties for Body Sense’s upcoming events. It’s not unusual, considering her enthusiasm and drive. “I enjoy every aspect of being an esthetician,” McGuire says. “I have heard from friends that they tire more quickly than they used to, but I can honestly say, at my age of 73-plus, I do not get tired when I am being an esthetician. Body Sense is just a happy place. I love being there, and I can’t say it’s work—it is a fun job.”
