Get to know Suzi in 5 points!
1. Suzi became interested in Natural Medicine as a teenager. She suffered from a life-threatening form of asthma. Largely allergy driven. She was in intensive care and high dependency ward, spending a large portion of her childhood in hospital. Constantly getting sick, struggling with weight and not wanting to follow the path of daily steroids, antibiotics and medication, she took it upon herself to get better. Suzi went to study Science at university and started to develop anxiety and panic, a result of constant stress, and burn out. After this she realised that science was not the only place that could provide the answers so she decided to study natural therapies, as this was what helped her and it was her passion. It made sense.
2. She loves to travel. This is her biggest passion and uses it for self development and of course relaxation! Her favourite places she has visited is Greece, Japan and the Caribbean. She is always looking forward to exploring!
3. She is an advocate of giving back, especially to those most vulnerable… children. Integrated Wellness Clinic currently supports Compassion Child Fund, Watato & Child Fund through sponsorship of Children. www.compassion.com.au
4. Integrated Wellness Clinic started from a simple vision. To blend science and nature and mind and body. It was started by herself and her husband initially as a 1 room, 1 Practitioner clinic. The demand quickly grew to what it is today. Since she was very young she always wanted to create her own business. This started at 16 years of age when she set up her own “natural beauty product range” to sell to friends, family and market. To work with a team of people all on the same line of thinking, is a dream come true.
5. Suzi is happily married and Mum to 3 children. They have chosen to homeschool their children. Together (with their poodles Pierre and Ruby) they spend most of their spare time outdoors, bush walking, surfing and exploring they love the beach.
