A Quick Message From Our Founder, Sonia Gaudette

The Story

In 2007 the seed was planted to create Holistic NH. Over the years it’s been nurtured and developed to evolve into what you see today.

Just like every person that walks this earth, every business has its own journey. The heartbeat of Holistic NH started beating back in 2007 when founder, Sonia Gaudette, stepped on her path of wellness and began a journey of healing and discovery. Coming from a background of trauma, she has experienced what holistic and alternative medicines and practices can do for someone suffering physically, mentally, emotionally, and/or energetically.

Holistically, it’s all connected.

As more knowledge was sought and gained, a realization of how difficult it was to find practitioners and information bloomed. In that realization, and in recognition of her skillset, she decided to offer all her business acumen to the holistic community and grow Holistic NH.

She started working on this project with a group of women in 2008, they created the NH Holistic Health Network and printed 5 years of holistic directories. This business lasted for five years, and for many reasons, the paths of the women diverged and faded into the day-to-day life of living, healing, working, and surviving.

Fast forward through a decade of healing, growth, and skill honing. In 2019 Sonia begins to question everything – like many others, the age-old question “What is my Purpose?” kept running through her head. So, she put a question out to the Universe (though when you ask her, she corrects you, saying it was an all-out cry for guidance). The answer came when she was told, “remember that directory you were a part of years ago? That was really helpful!”

Is it still needed? – ummmm…. MORE.THAN.EVER!!!

Sonia began her startup! Fast forward to 2020, the pandemic hits the nation and more and more people are seeking ways to wellness. Even with uncertainty, the complete knowledge of this community led to the first printed directory- The Central NH Pathways to Wellness was distributed in the Fall of 2020. As the printed versions were welcomed, the website HolisticNH.org was still in the making. A one-stop collection of holistic and alternative information for the people of New Hampshire and its surrounding community! At this point, it is spring of 2021 and Sonia is on her third Pathways to Wellness printed directory.

The dreams are big and the goals are bigger but her passion for the Holistic NH lights up the state. That passion met up with Carolyn Phinney one day while at the local spring watering hole. The dream that Sonia had designed matched up with a similar project Carolyn was going to do in her old home state of Delaware a number of years ago, before moving to New Hampshire. Together, they put their years of experience in the print world, event planning, marketing, entrepreneurship, and the holistic and alternative practices arena and got HolisticNh.org launched in two months.

This story is just the beginning of what a dream, drive, passion, guidance from the Universe, and serendipity bring to fruition. Helping people help themselves has been the passion and calling of both of these amazing women. That passion is now creating a reality to help both practitioners and the general public take control over their own pathway to wellness.

Meet The Team

Sonia Gaudette

Creator and Facilitator

Holistic New Hampshire Sonia GaudetteMeet Sonia Gaudette, for over 25 years, she has built upon her experiences to create and facilitate this organization. She has an extensive background in sales, communications, marketing, and graphic design. Why is she doing this? In her words “The holistic way of life has completely changed my world, and I want everyone to know about it so that they can affect the change they wish to see. I want to connect the collective, build a community and develop resources for the practitioners.”

Her Story – Once upon a time there was a girl who wished the best for everyone. Today she shares that vision with everyone. In the beginning, life was filled with trauma. As she grew, she came to know what it meant to be healed. It took 40 years to get to that point, but who’s counting? Over two decades ago, she decided it was time to step onto a path of self-discovery, self-empowerment, and holistic healing. After her first reiki session, she was hooked. Over the years she has experienced everything from energetic psychotherapy, chiropractic care, massage therapy, hypnosis, herbalism, EFT, EMDR, chakra balancing, yoga, craniosacral therapy, aromatherapy, naturopathic medicine, astrology, numerology, psychics, mediums, and many many more. She is NOT a practitioner of any of these and is very grateful to the holistic community for all she has experienced over the years.

In 2020, she meditated (begged the universe for guidance) on what her next steps were to be. After a number of “signs” (including her therapist saying “you remember that resource – that was really helpful”) decided it was time to take her knowledge, resources, and abilities and create the company: Holistic NH, LLC home of Holistic NH and Pathways to Wellness.

Sonia and Carolyn have said it was fate regarding how the two met and formed the collaboration. Sonia went to get water at the local spring in Bristol NH, while there a woman shows up in a beautiful purple SUV – come to find out – this woman’s day was mixed up from the start and with serendipity, she ended up at the watering hole at the same time. Sonia says, “Hey are you Carolyn? I’ve been wanting to meet you!” After an hour of in-depth conversation and a zillion bug bites later, they scheduled a deep dive meeting and have been collaborating ever since!

Carolyn’s journey, experience, and efforts are perfectly in alignment with everything Holistic NH is about!
