Q: Where are you from and what did you do before opening your business?
A: Dr Pete and I feel like we are from here because we have lived and worked in Ahwatukee since 1993, but originally I am from Minnesota and Pete is from New Jersey. All we have ever done professionally is to provide service and education to our community on natural holistic health care.
Q: Why did you open your business in this community?
A: We wanted to be a part of something, the small-town feel and be involved with our neighbors and businesses that live and work in Ahwatukee, too.
Q: How did you get the idea to open your business?
A: We always dreamed of opening a wellness center and, believe it or not, we were the first wellness holistic health center in Ahwatukee with multiple like-minded professionals providing services for our community.
Q: What type of merchandise/services do you sell?
A: The only retail products we sell are nutritional supplements.
Q: What does your business have in store for the future?
A: We want to continue to be in practice and help our community get well, stay well and live well, naturally.
Q: Anything else you want the community to know about you or your business?
A: We feel honored to have met and served so many of the Ahwatukee residents and businesses. We made a good choice calling this our home for more than 25 years.
