WHAT INSPIRES US
Partnering with our patients to restore hope & create excitement about the direction their health is headed
Founder & CEO
Karen founded Elite Wellness Group in 2014 after graduating with a degree in Business and being an owner/operator of DaySpring Natural Health Food Stores. She struggled with infertility, Chronic IBS, intense food allergies and auto-immune diseases during those years owning the HF stores. She spent 15+ years during her thirties trying to find healing through natural and conventional medicine with no success.
She decided to take control over her life and health after her experience of handing over control to everyone from Massage therapists, hypnotherapists, chiropractors to Allergists, ND's and handfuls of medical doctors. She knew there had to be a better way to attain good health.
Her struggles as a patient helped her to create Elite Medical Gro & used her path to help as inspiration.
She vowed to offer personalized, compassionate care knowing what it feels like to feel alone in a health journey.
