Naturopath & Yoga Teacher Susie Garden spent almost 2 decades working as a Registered Nurse and in the pharmaceutical industry before corporate burnout saw her reassessing her life and goals. Susie was inspired by the anonymous quote, “Create a life that feels good on the inside, not one that just looks good on the outside.” This fueled her desire to work in the ‘Wellness’ model, focusing on a healthy lifestyle for her clients, rather than the ‘Sickness’ model where change only happens once illness is present.
