I have been a part of Lotus since June 2015, working on reception and supporting the practitioners with their administration needs. I love Team Lotus and am now so proud to be the owner and manager. During my time at Lotus, I found the practitioners to be supportive, caring and willing to share their knowledge. At the end of 2018, this was more apparent than ever, when I was diagnosed with Follicular Lymphoma for the second time. Not only did the practitioners help me with support, such as cooking meals, but they also gave me consults and advice to help me through chemo. The Team came together and set up a GoFundMe page which Cath McMillan hosted a fund raiser at Lotus. I felt the impact of the community coming together to support me to enable me to stay home to recover and care for my two school aged children. I am so grateful to the Illawarra Community, my family and friends for the love and support I received. Now as I take on Lotus, I endeavour to continue the great work that Lotus provides to our community.
