My name is, Taylor. I am an LPN and had been practicing for 5.5 years in various settings prior to branching into business with Brianne, and joining the Holistic RN.
My background is primarily Emergency Medicine and Acute care. I worked in 3 different ER’s, UofA, Westview and Devon as well as medicine at both Westview and Devon Hospitals.
I have always loved helping people and had a great interest in biological sciences, thus leading me to choose a career as a nurse. In my personal life I have always been mindful and intuitive with my nutrition and exercise.
Throughout my career as a nurse I have always been drawn to the Holistic approaches to healing, and often questioned why this wasn’t actively integrated into practice with western medicine.
There are so many aspects to Holistic wellness that I feel strongly coincide with treatments provided within western medicine that are not brought forward, and in turn the benefits of Holistic wellness are truly underappreciated.
I decided to branch into the path of Holistic Nursing as I truly believe that the benefits of this practice are crucial to longevity and overall quality of life. I am so excited to be a part of introducing meaningful and sustainable change to peoples lives, while decreasing the odds of chronic disease.
Western Medicine focuses so greatly on treating symptoms of chronic disease or illness, without often identifying the underlying causes and correcting them when possible.
I feel Holistic Wellness offers us a chance to educate individuals and provide meaningful and most importantly sustainable change to peoples lives so that they don’t need to live with a ‘band-aid’ over the symptoms they thought they would just have to accept as part of their lives.
I am over the moon for the opportunity to work alongside Brianne and learn from her, as well as from all of our wonderful clients as I broaden my knowledge into Holistic Medicine.
A little about myself:
I grew up on an acreage near Stony plain, with my parents and two brothers. I recently moved to Hinton, Alberta, with my boyfriend and our two dogs. In my free time I love to explore the mountains in any way possible.
I love to snowmobile in the backcountry, dirtbike, camp, fish, hunt, cross country ski, run, hike… if there is adventure to be had, I’ll be there… oh and so will my dogs.
I am very personable and easy going. I have a love for life so big and a passion for living each day to its fullest. I am also everyone’s biggest fans. I absolutely LOVE seeing friends and strangers the same, living their lives the way they see the most meaningful.
My not so exciting side would have to be my diet. My friends and colleagues sometimes give me a hard time for my predicable staple foods and always being “so healthy,” but when you find the foods that make your body happy you stick with it, while of course indulging in the probably too occasional cinnamon bun.
I am a firm believer that you can live a happy, healthy life while still enjoying indulgences time to time without feeling the guilt.
We are human, we are beautiful and we are worthy.
Looking forward to meeting you all,
