GETTING TO KNOW Dr. Sonia F. Tan:
What gets you out of bed every day?... I am excited and grateful every day that I am able to help people restore their health, and inspire others to learn and grow. I feel blessed and am thankful that I have been able to gain the knowledge, experience and skills that enables me to help my fellow humans.
What hobby would you get into if time and money were not an issue?... Playing the guitar! I've always loved music and particularly stringed instruments. Of those, the guitar is one I've dabbled with, and I love both the sound that it can generate, and the music it can create to bring people together in various forms.
What is your favourite quote?... My favourite quote that keeps me leaning forward and blazing a trail, is from Brene Brown "Daring Greatly and Rising Strong" books, which in turn is from Theodore Roosevelt's powerful quote from his 1910 "Man in the Arena" speech: "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; ...who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly."
Are you or your company involved in your community (charity, fundraising, etc.)... Yes! From the beginning, we've always been involved in philanthropy. We've done pro-bono treatment sessions in the Downtown Eastside, we've donated to various non-profit societies many gift certificates of our consultations and treatment sessions, and we do some in-house philanthropy with our own 'Health Days'.
If all jobs had the same pay and hours, what would you do?... I would do the same. I love what I do. I love helping others restore all aspects of their health. The medicine did so much for me and gave me back my self-sustaining body. I enjoy doing the same for others, and teaching and inspiring others the same.
