Our Wellness Travel Professionals
Growing up around health conscious parents and playing competitive sports, Carly has always had a passion for health and wellness. In pursuit of that, she studied extensively, first receiving her Bachelor of Science Degree (BSc) with a focus in Food and Nutrition from the University of British Columbia and more recently graduating from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN). Her view on nutrition has evolved over the years and she likes to keep it simple: enjoy the food you are eating, eat slowly and mindfully.
Her mission is to broaden people’s perspectives in the field of health and wellness by offering quality trips to health conscious destinations. Carly believes that travelling can be a key component in one’s path to health and well-being. The immersion of oneself into a healing environment can be the missing and yet essential step in the process of self-discovery and learning how to sustain one’s own health.
