Our Staff

Donna Levesque

Joe & I became the new owners as of Sept 1, 2018 and are so excited to continue offering the high standards set forth since 1984 ... QUALITY, HONESTY, COURTESY, COMPASSION AND KNOWLEDGE. My interest and enthusiasm into one day owning Nature's Goodness began in 2008 as the bookkeeper for the store. Soon after I became a member of the family at the store as well. We will continue to strive to make every customer's visit enjoyable and informative and guide our customers to a more healthy lifestyle. Our continued commitment to always do better will allow us to meet the many challenges ahead and truly make a difference.

Fast forward 30 yrs later, he continues this healthy path with quarterback training and an extensive knowledge in athletic performance nutrition. Although his business A-1 Dents keeps him very busy, his passion for the natural food industry, his carpentry talents and his smart business sense make him "A Natural" for co-owning Nature's Goodness.

Her passion for a healthy lifestyle, which led to her intense curiosity of the benefits of supplements and nutrition have brought her to Nature’s Goodness and “you” since January 2020.

Sharyn Singer

Working again in the natural foods industry is like coming home. From the 70’s until now I’ve watched nourishing food finally take its proper place in the world, enhancing people’s lives. Today, what was fringe is now mainstream; whole foods, organic foods, gluten and dairy free foods, nutrients, pure bodycare products, herbs and so much more. Witnessing people’s lives alter especially when their food changes is miraculous.

Food has always been part of my professional path. As a registered nurse, health food store owner, Naturopath (UK), teacher and professional chef, food is the common theme that flows throughout and has brought me so much pleasure. Yet there is still more to learn from foods, plants, supplements, herbs and lifestyle influences on us. They are the teachers- I’m the willing student and loving this lifelong journey.
