About: Susan Mitchell

My care-giving includes 9 children, 35 grandchildren, and 5 little greats. For three years I was full-time caregiver to the kind woman who birthed my sweetheart. Then his health took some twists and turns that lead us down challenging pathways including a kidney transplant. Care giving is a sacred endeavor, but we must go about it wisely to sustain our own physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health. My wish is to be your caregiver. Yes, a caregiver should have a caregiver too.

Thank you, Kianna

My doTERRA Story Began with One Bottle of Melaleuca!
