Keira Alexandra

Keira Alexandra was born on Jan 18th, 2017.  She was 6.8 lbs.  Overall healthy, but had an issue with her colon that required surgery.  She breezed through that surgery like a champ. We have 2 more surgeries to go.  One at the end of March and another about 2 months after.
Over all she is a healthy happy baby:)

Maternity Leave

Hello:)  I keep getting questions as to my work plan once the baby arrives.  It is any day now, so check back periodically to see what is going on.

1st, once the baby arrives I will probably take about 2 weeks from phone and email.  I will check periodically though and respond when I can. 

2nd, for the remaining 6 weeks I will be going into the office about 1x/week to ship out product orders.  So if you want to place a product order, please give me at least a weeks notice so that I, or one of my temp helps, can the order filled and also make sure it's in stock.

I will start seeing clients again after about 8 weeks.  So feel free to contact me to schedule starting mid to late March.

Hope everyone has a great winter!

Update Nov 27th 2016

Hello:)  It has been a while since I have sent out info on what has been going on with life.  The past year has been a challenge.  Many know my brother Brett passed away a few months ago in June after a courageous battle with Brain Cancer.  (I have a whole article that will be going out about that soon with a lot of educational and informative info.)  In the process of him starting to decline, I decided not to go to CA for an Herb course and stayed home to be with him.  That week I unexpectedly got pregnant.  My husband and I had given up trying a while ago since I could never hold a pregnancy for more than 7 weeks... I am now 7+ months.  We all believe my brother had something to do with it.  I was able to tell him I was pregnant before he passed away, he was the first person I told and he was very excited.  My brother was my best friend and I feel like there is a part of him with me all the time.

Just prior to Brett's decline and finding out I was pregnant, I had decided to move my office in with Chiropractor Dr. Chalyse Shaw, located on York Rd around the corner from where I was in Hereford.  I had the pleasure of getting to know Chalyse over the years and felt like there was a great synergy there.  Two massage therapists, Lourie McCormick and Susan Chalker,   also occupy the space .  Timing was interesting, I found out I was pregnant the day after I signed the lease in mid May.  It was a bit of a challenge in June dealing with my brothers death, being pregnant (and sick) and moving all at the same time.  I had a lot of support and help from wonderful friends, and in the end, being in this new location surrounded by wonderful people has been amazing. 

So my due date is Jan 20th, so I will keep everyone posted on my upcoming work plans once the baby arrives, maternity leave, etc.  I plan to still pop into the office occasionally to ship out products to current clients, and leave out products for those who would like to pick up at the office.  As far as scheduling appointments, I am not sure how much time I will take, I am playing it by ear;-) 

Happy Holidays!!
