Emily Sarkies is a Senior Naturopath for Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary in Koh Samui, Thailand.  Originally from Melbourne, Australia, she embraced an opportunity to work in this wonderfully unique setting over two years ago, bringing with it profound professional growth, insight and perspective towards being well.
