Holistic medicine has been an interest throughout Siobhan’s life but the passion really enveloped her while trying to combat a chronic illness her fiancé is facing. Between working with Dr. Al and diet/lifestyle changes, they have already seen improvements. This has lead to her wanting to contribute to helping others in the same way. She currently works weekends at the front desk as well as assisting with supplement and tincture preparation.
She works full time at an orthodontics laboratory during the week but uses her free time to educate herself on the holistic path.
