Q: Who are your mentors?

A: “My grandmother and mother taught me the importance of taking care of myself. They also taught me to respect and understand nature. Later, I was lucky to be around renowned scientists, such as Stefan Ionescu-Cälineşti, PhD, and herbalist, Ovidiu Bojor. Both are brilliant and have dedicated their lives to encode nature from science. They built into me the passion for study and to become an autodidact on biology and physiology. I have been lucky enough to work at Red Door Spa where CEO, Todd Walter, is my business mentor. In life, everything is an evolution, and it is important to have great mentors at certain points in your career, like I did.”
