Member Spotlights

Florence Paquet

My name is Florence Paquet (Flo), owner of Grow With Flo Counseling and Doula Services… and I am all about empowerment!

In my years of doing social work, of being passionate about holistic wellbeing personally and professionally, I know seeking treatment is exhausting, time consuming, cold, disenfranchising, expensive, and can carry a sense of personal and cultural stigma - like there’s something wrong. So, I have been passionate about finding solutions that are practical and efficient, using tools clients can learn for themselves, and techniques that are active, engaging and client lead. I’m incredibly soulful in what I do - I honor that this work is deep, vulnerable, and challenging in a way that many of us aren’t used to or may be uncomfortable with. I want everyone to know they can unleash their full and unique selves, free from mental muck - limiting beliefs, fearful and analytical concerns, all the shoulds, trauma and patterns that no longer serve.

Patrice Rennick

My name is Patrice Rennick and I’ve been an RN since 1982.   My husband and I moved from Michigan to Tellico Village in August 2017.

My specialty in nursing is wound and ostomy care; I still work part time with a durable medical equipment company as a consultant.

In 1997, my then 8-year-old cat Pia was diagnosed with chronic renal failure.  At the time, the vet said that aside from changing her food, there wasn’t anything he could do or recommend.   He said Pia may have about one year to live.
