  1. Good morning,
    I’m wondering if you guys would consider someone for this position who doesn’t have much of the tech experience, but is formally educated and trained in Ayurveda and Herbalism? This sounds like a dream job for me as I get my own business up and running, but I don’t have the tech experience. However, I am more than eager to learn. I have been watching LifeSpa for a few years now, and I have a very high level of respect and regard for Dr. John. I am also located in Omaha, NE, so I would work remotely, but I would be willing to fly out to CO to do a formal interview if need be.
    Please let me know what you think. Have a wonderful day.- Lauren A. Domenge

  2. Hello Helen!

    I hope you are having a great day! I just emailed you my application, but am a little worried the position may already be filled due to its initial listing being from December. Is this position still open or are there any other positions that will be opening up in the near future? Let me know at your earliest convenience. Thank you!

    Kindly,
    Anuja
