In Her Words: Claudia's Story
Though an engineer by trade, after working several years as Project Engineer, Sales Manager, and Admission Consultant, I realized that what drives me is not numbers but people. Understanding their needs and coming up with the best services and solutions for them is the thing I’m most passionate about.
After struggling with mental illness in the workplace, I decided to leave my corporate career to become an entrepreneur. My goal was to create a business in which I would have the ability to help those who have struggled with similar issues that I faced.
While unemployed, I met a peer who introduced me to floating, and I decided to try it for myself. I soon became 100% satisfied with the experience and knew I needed to get involved. I began researching float therapy and its benefits, and I became wholeheartedly convinced of how incredible it would be for more people to understand its benefits.
I realized that, as with any other issues with our health, we need to establish a regular practice of prevention to be in control and maintain good health. That realization changed my life forever. I look forward to sharing the power of Vital Float with both Toronto and guests from afar!
