We speak with Shanti Volpe who owns Shanti Elixirs a jun brewery in Asheville, NC. Jun is a sparkling, probiotic green tea made with raw honey. Shanti is also a Registered Nurse at Mission Hospital and a board certified licensed lactation consultant. We talk about Covid-19 in the health care industry and what the talk on the front lines sounds like. Shanti talks about all of the new protocols in place and how she and all of the brave health care workers harness their courage to go to work each day. We discuss testing, data management, and the changing trends during this pandemic. She confirms the growing number of cases in Buncombe County and how hospital beds are beginning to fill up. We also discuss her lactation consultation and how she is navigating new parents having children during the pandemic. We also talk about Shanti's jun brewery and how she has had to shift that business during Covid-19.
In creating her beverage company, Shanti looked to the bees for guidance. A hive achieves its magic by working together. Shanti’s passion, sense of purpose, and desire to collaborate attracted an extraordinary, compassionate, and dedicated group of individuals who now form the Shanti Elixirs’ hive. Working together, the Shanti Elixirs’ team is dedicated to spreading well-being, peace and good vibes through every sip of Jun. Created and bottled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina.
