Nicole Leffler, Wild Ginger Apothecary Owner + CBD Educator 

I am the owner and wellness junkie at Wild Ginger Apothecary.  With almost 15 years of wellness experience, including tenure with national retailers, I value the importance of continual education in the natural and holistic industry (personally and professionally).  I have been everything from a licensed builder to a business consultant to a Certified Holistic Health Coach, and I use all those experiences in my practice and business today.

I am a soul searcher, explorer, foodie, puppy lover, water baby, Intuitive Business Consultant, and previous Desire Map Facilitator.   Originally an Ann Arbor, Michigan native, I have had roots to the Sarasota community since birth.  I'm happy to bring the health + wellness community together with all that Wild Ginger Apothecary has to offer and look forward to meeting each of you!
