Meet The Team
Kathy is currently on maternity leave, having left the daily running of the shop in the capable hands of Yvonne, Nicola and Steph, to enjoy this special time with her first child.
Kathy opened Health at Hand in 2011 after many years working in the trade. She has a wealth of experience working as a therapist and as a healthcare adviser.
Helping people with physical and emotional issues is her passion and she loves nothing more than guiding people to the best solution for their needs.
She is a Holistic Therapist, having studied in both Ireland and China, and recently qualified as a Dr. Hauschka Esthetician.
Nicola brings a wealth of knowledge from her previous experience working in the Health Food trade and in the many other fields that she has worked in over the years.
She is a fantastic make-up artist and now works exclusively with chemical free, natural products like the wonderful Dr. Haushcka make-up range.
"I love the interaction with customers and thoroughly enjoy giving help and advice where possible. I love the diversity of customers coming into our shop and being able to work in this positive and caring environment.”
Yvonne has worked in the Health Food industry for many years and in the past ran her own Health Food Store and Juice Bar, Yogi's Pantry, in Tinahely Co. Wicklow before the arrival of her daughter Emily. Yvonne is a brilliant listener and healthcare adviser with a genuine interest in each customer.
She has her own set of loyal customers who always make sure to come in when she is working in the shop.
Steph has had many career roles in her life, including chef extarordinaire, having trained at the famous Ballymamloe cookery school. She is a trained Massage Therapist and is currently studying Aromatherapy.
Steph has been a part of Health at Hand, on and off, from its opening in 2011 and is currently back in the store on a part-time basis, much to the delight of our customers, who love her warm, friendly manner and wonderful sense of humour.
