About the Owner
Welcome to Kairos Float & Wellness Studio! Let me give you a short autobiography; I have a Ph.D. in Physiology from East Carolina University and completed my post-doctoral training at Duke University in Molecular & Cellular Physiology in the Department of Dermatology. After graduate school, I taught Anatomy & Physiology for 10 years at both the undergraduate & graduate levels. I have a true passion for science and a desire to share the research-supported benefits of alternative health modalities with Greenville and the surrounding communities.
I floated for the first time in June 2018 in a small town in Pennsylvania while on vacation. It was lifechanging for me, the pure relaxation, the quiet disconnect from the electronic world, and the reconnection with my own self-care led me to the possibility that I could share this with the people in my community. So, in September 2018 I began my new career as a scientist turned entrepreneur. I spent time reading medical research to learn more about the best alternative health & holistic therapies so I could provide the highest quality services at our studio. I also starting making a focused effort on my own health and self-care.
The first major adventure in my journey to improving my self-care was a trip was to the Superstition Mountains in Arizona for a 3-day thru-hike backpacking trip with my best friend (to celebrate a major birthday milestone). It was during this trip that I felt a real connection with the energy of the earth and how we, as humans, are connected as well. This inspired me to learn more about human biofields and become a Reiki I/II Practitioner.
A little more about me, I love to paint; I am obsessed with dogs; I love anything and everything about science. I am a new CrossFit athlete, I enjoy yoga & meditation, and I am thrilled to share my passion with you!
Another fun fact, my girls and I started Greenville NC ROCKS in June 2017, it is part of the Kindness Rock Project. You can search for rocks around town and/or paint your own. Once you do, post them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (@GreenvilleNCROCKS).
Lastly, our family and business are strong supporters of the US military, law enforcement, emergency medical services, and school teachers. We believe the best thing you can be in life is KIND.
Have an amazing day!
