I always liked roads less traveled, perhaps this is one of those. 

Everyone has their story; the place they were born into, other places that shape them into various versions of themselves and finally, life experiences that continuously keep the human evolution alive in all of us. 

My story began in small medieval Spa town in former communist Czechoslovakia, Bardejov. Perhaps, it was right there, on those Sundays collecting mineral rich waters from various springs, that my love for all things wellness sparked. Perhaps it was my constant craving for raw vegetables ( crunchy kohlrabi and juicy tomato sprinkled with salt were my favs ), and awaiting for each season to gift its harvests. 

Growing up in a large family of two brothers and two sisters, has forever etched that precious sense of togetherness and community into my heart. You know, the importance of being a team. All for one and one for all was our motto. The idea that there is someone sharing certain life experiences alongside mine. All of this has become an anchor in my life - all the countries I've lived and traveled, roles I held, teams I managed and most of all how I chose to approach my professional and personal wellbeing.
