2021 Entrepreneur of the Year Award
Jaime Evans, owner of Evexia Osteopathy, received the Young Entrepreneur Award, sponsored by the College of the North Atlantic (CNA). This award recognizes a female entrepreneur 35 years of age or younger who has owned and operated a profitable business for at least two years.
“I began this journey to help people to feel better, but I am rewarded every day when I see my clients’ quality of life improve. Thank you, NLOWE, for acknowledging my achievements with this award. And I encourage any aspiring entrepreneur that has a dream of opening your own business to do it. NLOWE has programs and start-up advisors to help navigate you through the process and connect you with mentors and networks.”
Evans worked at osteopathic clinics on the mainland but always wanted to return home to Gander. So in 2018, driven by ambition, courage, and a plan, Evans and her partner packed up their belongings and headed home to open her clinic.
Evexia Osteopathy uses hands-on, non-invasive treatments to restore balance and help the body heal through natural processes. Since opening the clinic, Evans has surpassed her business goals and built a robust clientele in under five years.
Evans says that she primarily sees patients with chronic pain and that helping to improve their quality of life has been rewarding.
