Zhenya Gerson had a goal when she established Exhale Wellness Spa - to create a space for people to relax, be nourished and supported through whatever health issues they may be
experiencing.

She is deeply passionate about helping people with their gut health, making it easier to get through their day, to think more clearly, and avoid the ‘tummy rumble’ in middle of that important meeting with your boss. Colonics are not just for those
with tummy troubles, they have so many benefits.

Zhenya has been a long-term and passionate advocate for the use of a footstool when doing your ‘bathroom business’ and was introduced to the PROPPR.  She immediately loved its
sleek and attractive design and the clinic soon became a stockist.

THEN .... the Proppr Products business was listed on the market. Fast forward a few months and Zhenya is now the co-owner of the PROPPR with business partner Jacqueline.

In this interview Zhenya speaks candidly about her business journey - both her Wellness Spa as well as now owning a product business.

Dr. Grace helps professionals to reinvent their careers through her coaching and her programs that are rooted in neuroscience. Her clients learn to discover their purpose, decide on a career direction, build their dream career, and grow their income.

An educator focused on excellence, Dr. Grace has said, "No matter what your educational or vocational background, behind every success there is a mountain of obstacles and an ocean of unfavorable odds. Everything looks like a failure halfway through. Progress often disguises itself as problems when in fact it is evidence of growth and improvement."

 

Dr Grace has spent 10 years helping professionals reinvent their careers, Dr. Grace has deep empathy for those from very humble beginnings. Her personal journey from being orphaned and then homeless at the age of 9 provided the backdrop for her to develop resilience and resourcefulness to survive. After a serendipitous meeting with an older couple who would later become her adoptive parents, Dr. Grace found that her story was resonating, especially how she leveraged education as her "ticket to freedom".
