Krista A. Parr, Receptionist, Genesis Fertility Centre
Hi, I’m Krista. As a part-time receptionist here at Genesis, I am often the first person that patients meet when they arrive at the clinic. As the elevators open and you step into Genesis for the first time, I know that it’s probably been a long, maybe painful journey for you already. It is my hope that your very first interaction with our clinic is representative of what your whole experience will be like: warm, welcoming, friendly, caring, compassionate, knowledgeable and dedicated to excellence. You are in very good hands here.
My Journey to Genesis Fertility Centre
I came to Genesis in 2009 at a time of uncertainty and transition in my own life. I was forced to end my career as a contemporary dancer and choreographer prematurely due to profound injury and chronic pain. After dedicating my entire life to dance, I was questioning my identity and my future. At Genesis I became fascinated by the work of the passionate, hardworking staff and I was excited to learn about something other than dance! Admittedly, before coming to Genesis I had never really thought about fertility and was certainly not aware that so many individuals and couples were facing the heartbreak of infertility. As a ‘people-pleaser’ I wished I could personally do something more to support the lovely, gracious people who so deserved to become parents.
My Holistic Path
Root to Fruit Nutrition, Krista Adamic’s business
When I began studying at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in 2011 I knew I wanted to direct my learning towards fertility and women’s health. I gained my Registered Holistic Nutritionist designation in March 2013 and promptly founded Root To Fruit Nutrition in order to support women on their fertility journey. For those facing infertility, improving the diet can reduce stress on the body, improve overall health, and provide a pro-active focus. Usually, simple, gradual changes can have a huge impact on your life! I have been deeply inspired by my clients and their incredible motivation and hope.
When I’m not working at the Genesis reception desk or helping women achieve their health goals through nutrition, I can be found teaching ballet to competitive gymnasts, practicing yoga, tending to my veggie garden, creating delicious meals, or laughing hysterically with my family and friends.
