KANDIS HALL, Director of Events

Kandis is the founder and owner of New Leaf Wellness Retreat. She credits her work experiences in healthcare as a Nursing Assistant, Therapeutic Programmer and Certified Exercise Physiologist for giving her the insight she needed to create all-inclusive, healthy getaways for our guests. She takes a holistic approach to wellness and believes in improving the health and well-being of other people through simple and accessible wellness practices.

Today, Kandis coordinates our retreats and strives to ensure our guests have the resources they need during their healthy getaways.

“In a short amount of time, these retreats have evolved into something more beautiful than I ever expected- an opportunity for people to make simple, yet meaningful connections through yoga, hiking, fitness sessions and a variety of other mind-body activities. My favorite part of my “job” is when I see the smiles on everyone’s faces (sometimes tears) as they hug each other goodbye at the conclusion of a retreat. It’s in these moments that it’s clear to me that these experiences are what people need to feel healthy and happy in today’s modern world… it’s in these moments that I know we’re doing something important… something BIG.”
