Vibrant Julie is a married mother of two adult sons and Nana to a beautiful little girl. Julie's journey with the chiropractic industry started nine years ago, when she was working at a local gym. She was inspired by an amazing young woman to become involved in the health and wellness of chiropractic as a chiropractic assistant and wow! She has not looked back.
Having suffered from sciatica pain for many years Julie was amazed everyday with the results she consistently gets from having regular chiropractic care. Chiropractic keeps her working hard at the gym with her friends, who often say in a joking way ''we want what she is having'' with which she replies ''chiropractic care.''
Julie's passion never ends because she watches every day the satisfying and amazing transition of many clients as they gain their true health through regular chiropractic care.
Shaan initially came to The Health Shack thru personally seeking care for migraines. She soon then realised the many benefits of chiropractic care, not just for relieving her pain but for her noticeably overall healthier wellbeing. Since then she hasn’t looked back, (apart from wishing she found Chiropractic sooner) and now her entire little Taylor Tribe all see our practitioners.
Her two little guys are her pride and joy and are sports mad. She believes in nurturing them with love, happiness and importantly great nutrition to care for and support their bodies.
Shaan is our little creative of the team who loves to spend her free time styling and re-designing spaces, especially when incorporating nature into the home. She’s a frequent at the local yoga studio and when the sun is shining you’ll find her out on her paddle board soaking up the waters in our beautiful bay.
This is her first permanent role back into the community after taking time out to raise her sons and couldn’t think of a better place to be… she gets to learn and work at a place where health thrives! Her favourite mantra is “Be the change that you want to see in the world” Ghandi
