This is Yates Apothecary
The idea for Yates Apothecary started in 2010...shortly after the birth of our son, and me deciding to leave my full time career as a Nuclear Medicine Technologist. I spent over 13 year as a Nuclear Medicine Technologist...years of pagers, on-call, late nights, and radiation. I realized I wasn't happy. Money wasn't an issue, but my happiness was.
There were long talks with my husband, lots of tears, and terrifying thoughts of leaving stability for something I thought was a "hobby". The leap of faith happened...I quit my job. "I must be crazy", I thought.
Top 10 facts in 2010:
1. Brand new baby (Brom)
2. 18 month old toddler (Magnus)
3. Left my 13 year career job (that paid good money)
4. Started thinking about what makes me happy
5. Cried a lot
6. I think I need a therapist
7. Still crazy
8. Can I get my job back?
9. Started piecing together Yates Apothecary
10. I bought me first perfumer's kit + books
Fast forward 5 years ---> Yates Apothecary has grown and so have I. The boys are alive, I'm still married and I'm happy.
Yates Apothecary was named in honor of my dog, Yates. He was a silly chocolate lab that I named after my favorite poet: William Butler Yeats. When I registered him with the AKC, they changed his name (accidentally) to Yates. He was my heart dog, my love, and my family. My nickname for Yates was pig...which is why the logo has a pig.
