Why did you start your business in Yaletown?
I wanted to start my practice in a vibrant community and Yaletown seemed like the perfect fit! It remains to be so 16 years later and my solo practice has developed into a multidisciplinary practice with 8 practitioners supporting the health and wellness of Yaletown residents and business owners and employees.
What is your favourite part of your job?
My patients… it is so rewarding to help those in need of care and have a long term relationship with them, their families, friends and others they refer to our clinic.
Complete the following sentence:
“What really makes us unique is…”
We are an integrative clinic with chiropractic, registered massage therapy, naturopathic medicine and registered acupuncture focused on female, family and pediatric care. Our specialization also brings people to Yaletown where they stay to experience all that the community has to offer.
What would you tell someone who is thinking about opening their own business?
Determine your target demographic and find out where they are and where they go. I chose Yaletown because of the community around it – there’s a lot of young professionals and young families who live and work in the area. Yaletown is centrally located and is easily accessible from Downtown using the Canadaline so you can tap into that market too. Another consideration are your neighbours you want to be in an environment where businesses complement each other.
