Meet our Staff - Jamie McCall and Caitlin Keddie

Caitlin Jamie In The Dispensary

Hi there

The Fringe crowds are dispersing and the hoardings are coming down outside the shop. It's been an amazing summer and I'm so proud of the wonderful team in the shop and clinic - they have worked incredibly hard and I want to take this opportunity to thank them for going over and above the call of duty. Somehow, they all still look fresh and alert despite the long hours and frenetic pace. Must be the herbs!

In previous blogs, I've been introducing to you some of our staff. Today it's the turn of Caitlin Keddie and Jamie McCall who work in our shop and dispensary.

Jamie McCall - Sales Assistant / Cranio-Sacral Therapist

I grew up with complementary therapy, and decided I wanted to be involved somehow after a combination of Osteopathy & Cranio-Sacral Therapy helped heal my neck. I ended up training as a Cranio-Sacral Therapist myself, and have been practising every since, though I’ve also been working at Napiers for 2 years. The history of the place always appealed to me, the old original recipes and the fact that the business supported all forms of complementary health care. I loved the vibes in the shop and knew I wanted to be a part of it. In my spare time I enjoy yoga, meditation, hiking and raw foods.

Caitlin Keddie - Sales Assistant

I was brought up in a herbal environment so I’ve been involved with Napiers since childhood. I was interested in nutrition quite early on especially the way our diet affects our health. This ultimately led to an interest in herbal medicine so after leaving high school I started work experience here which then led to a permanent position. It’s been 2 years since I started, and I’m still enjoying every minute. In my spare time I enjoy being active, sociable and constantly learning. I also volunteer with a mental health charity, which I find very fulfilling.
