Meet Katie, Pukka's Senior Herbal Advisor
Our Senior Herbal Advisor, Katie Pande, has been with Pukka since July 2011 and tells us a little more about herself and her Pukka journey here.
What are your responsibilities at Pukka?
I'm responsible for providing herbal advice and guidance to the Pukka staff, our B2C and B2B customers. This can take shape in our internal Pukka Life sessions where I'm taking the Pukka staff through our wellbeing & herbal solutions as well as taking our stockists on a journey through our Wellbeing families & health solutions each month our recently revived Pukka Academy webinars. I'm also involved in developing ad hoc FAQ answers for our consumers as well as the development our ever growing Pukkapedia and contribute to Pukka Planet articles about herbs.
Why do you love working with Pukka?
Plants are my passion, which is what drew me to working for Pukka after completing my training as a Medical Herbalist. Being part of the Pukka family means that I can learn and talk about plants and their amazing healing properties all day!
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working at Pukka?
I love nature and the outdoors. I'm always the one who buys up all the unwanted plants at the garden centre so that I can take them home and bring them back to life!
What makes you Come Alive?
Experiencing the sheer awesomeness of nature; watching the waves, experiencing a storm and basking in the sunlight.
