And Dr. Guaraldi (Kitt) has had her baby! WELCOME Lucy Ellis Wynn born on June 17th at 3:33 pm, 8 pounds, 3 ounces, 21 inches long and 36 cm "around the noggin". A ginger headed noggin at that! We couldn't be more excited for her and her family!! Yay Kitt! We love you.
What a wonderful time of the year to have a baby. Warm days, flowers blooming, vegetables and fruits are plentiful. We wish her a restful, relaxing, and sweet recovery time with her little Lucy and look forward to seeing her again in the fall!
The Catamount Ultra Trail running event is being held this coming Saturday, June 28th, at the Trapp Family Lodge. There will be festivities and fun. If you've ever thought you might want to run a 1/2 marathon or a longer full marathon in the woods, this is the race to run! Beautiful trails and great race support. Already in its first year, this race sold out! If you are interested in working towards a running goal next year, come check it out or just stop over to say hello as Stowe Natural Family Wellness will be running the recovery/medical station at the race.
As some of you know, our wonderful front office manager, Amanda, has left her position to seek employment closer to her home and daughter's school. We are sad to see her go, but she will still be in touch as she will continue to do the insurance billing for the practice. And yes, she is my sister :-)!! In her stead, welcome Tami Quinn!! Tami has joined our team at SNFW and will be available for your needs, in the office Monday-Friday. Tami has quite a varied background, most recently, however, has worked as a manager for a physical therapy office. Her skills were an easy transfer to our medical office, but most of all, her kindness and enthusiasm for the job is what sealed the deal. In the two weeks that Tami has been in the office, she has been most impressed by how warm and welcoming everyone has been. You all are great!
