Gaye Abbott

 

Gaye Abbott is the elder on the Healthy Child team facilitating the extraordinary customer service we talk about and posting on social media. Three grown sons and three grandchildren, all in California, give her plenty of opportunity these days to find out what grandparenting is all about.

Gaye lives, and has a home office, in the Sierra foothills of Northern California with a creek and waterfall in her back yard surrounded by tall mixed evergreens and other delightful trees.  Her background includes over 35 years in the health and healing fields including nurse, massage and yoga therapist, energy medicine (Jin Shin Jyutsu) and Qigong practitioner.  She is also a published author and not only loves to write, but coaches others in their endeavors.

She has over 25 years of friendship with the owner of Healthy Child, Jane Sheppard.  In fact Jane’s daughter Jenna, who is now at Yale in nurse practitioner training, was born in Gaye’s massage/healing space in Santa Rosa, California 23 years ago.  What a blessing to work for such a conscious company owned by a long standing friend!

At this stage of life Gaye feels it is even more important to work and play with people in a way that brings joy and to assist others to thrive while aligning with deep inner values and concerns for our planet.  She has found this way of being within the mission of Healthy Child, the wonderful customers that she interacts with, the conscious products, and the amazing and loving team  she works with.

Among her loves and passions are her sons and grandchildren, beloved friends, exploring the natural world, travel to all parts of the globe, swimming with dolphins, cooking yummy organic meals, ecstatic dance….and being fully present to the unfolding of life moments!
