Jemina Shrestha, Receptionist

A recent environment graduate, I aim to promote sustainable solutions to the global environmental crisis by empowering community members. Along the journey, I aspire to meet people from all walks of life and learn new things from them. I plan to call these teachings "Gems of Jem". I truly believe in the power of words to heal and help humankind evolve. So, I spend most of my time reading and writing. Finding and connecting people with growth mindset and beautiful souls gives me  a high that I simply cannot explain. The people here at Fine Form Physio check all of those boxes and being part of this family who help to heal others makes me feel eternally grateful.
