Karen Eigler , Office Manager

My work history is very multi-faceted.  I grew up with a family owned restaurant which was my first exposure to serving the public and got a taste of the immediate positive feedback you can experience when providing excellent service.  I continued in various customer care positions through out the past 35 years in roles such as co-owning a roofing company, direct sales, managing a wellness centre and many years in telecommunications industry.  I have been fortunate to be recognized with several awards in various service industries as I truly enjoy helping people.  From the age of 27 I have done direct sales of quality wellness products on the side.  Being involved with these companies was not all about income but equally the positive community, the constant personal development and of course getting great products at cost. I have always had a strong interest in and a preference to natural forms of health and wellness for my own personal care so this clinic and the philosophies here has been a terrific fit for me and I have enjoyed working here since 2010. My hobbies have included getting certified in different energy healing modalities. I have certificates in Level 3 Reiki, Level 2 Quantum Touch and Level 2 Emotional Freedom Technique.  Music and dance are a huge part of my life.  I can often be found out dancing til the last song of the night in a local deep house music club.
