Full-time clinic receptionist
The subject of health is extremely close to my heart, which is why last year I decided to start studying holistic nutrition. So many things have fallen into place for me since I’ve started school. I see so much proof that I truly am where I’m supposed to be.
Making the choice to be responsible for my own health is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I spent a long time wishing I could go back and talk to my younger self to make better choices before learning to accept where I’ve been and take charge of where I’m going. Instead, I’ve decided to use what I am learning to help others have the tools to take their health into their own hands and share the understanding that everything we do has an effect on our bodies and minds. All of these are reasons why I enjoy so much working in a clinic with a holistic outlook that is truly put into practice every day.
