ELANZA Wellness is an equal opportunity employer and we value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. In fact, we are confident that the most inclusive and diverse teams accomplish the most extraordinary results.
Wisdom - We gain wisdom by combining evidence-based science with the hands-on insight that comes from experience. Information is not knowledge. And knowledge alone is not wisdom. We know that sometimes we must embrace complexity in order to get to the simplest solution.
Wonder - We stand in awe of the deep mystery of life that sits at the center of every fertility journey. At the core of this mystery is the desire to tap into our most basic creative potential as humans: To create life, whether that’s one’s own life or bringing a new life into the world. To create family. We believe that by embracing what is unknowable with wonder, we can move through anxiety into a state of curiosity and gratitude. This is where the best creations come from.
Well-Being - Every problem has a unique answer and each life has its own path. Well-being arises when we approach situations with an open mind, knowing that where we started may not be where we end up. When we stop chasing what we believe to be ‘the one right thing’ we become receptive to possibility and wholeness.
