    Hi my name is Olivia, I am a resident physician in internal medicine. I practice medicine in Las Vegas. Every day, I see anxiety/depression affect my co-residents in a number of patients that I take care of in the hospital. I would love to feature your bracelet on my Instagram page if you’re interested. Please let me know. Email below.

    Hi,
    I am a 54 yr old single mom/nana who has survived domestic violence, and every day I have to prove myself in the work place to make a living for my family. The story behind the Pura Vida is what captured my heart and I finally purchased not 1, but 8pieces and I loved them. My Instagram is @teddybearhugs4
