Noelle, CWO (Chief Wellness Officer)
Quincy and Hanover Locations

Noelle joined the A Healthy Balance team in 2014 after a ruff start on the streets. She quickly went from street rat to spoiled brat after being adopted from the Quincy Animal Shelter.  She settled into her role as Chief Wellness Officer, has officially become mayor of the studio and claims to be the cutest employee on staff. Noelle loves to greet new clients and gladly accepts pay in the form of belly rubs and empty peanut butter jars. Other passions include barking at the dogs next door through the window (but only when Nikki is on the phone), stealing edamame pods, chasing her tail, napping in the sunny spot in the office, and long walks.
