Tia Veech is a passionate Aromatherapist who works in the natural therapies field and is involved in her local community. Having worked in secretarial, public service and for a race club, Tia found joy in natural therapies after a car accident left her unable to pursue office work. Tia’s life-long dream was to teach which saw Tia run a family day care service in her home for 5 years after her miracle babies came along but she now channels her teaching back into aromatherapy and is a Silver Leader with her company.
