WHAT WE DO

We teach you how to be adaptable with trending population habits so as to build branding awareness wherever your target market spends their time. We offer streamlined efforts to build your vision for your clinic in a digital format and how to leverage technology in your favor. Doing the top 20% that ALWAYS nets the bare minimum 300%+ return.

Advocacy involving our leaders in the economic opportunity that thriving alternative medicine communities provide, leads to policy changes! Currently, we are advocating Portland, OR as a #MedicalTourism destination for alternative therapies and are developing the research to back up this claim!

We support keeping as much economic opportunity under YOUR roof as possible. This means developing current staff assets. Our industry attracts multi-talented  people who often turn down higher paying corporate positions in favor of supporting the 'family' that makes a difference together.

LEVERAGING TECHNOLOGY TRENDS = MAXIMUM BENEFIT

IMPROVING THE POP-CULTURE VIEW OF MEDICINE

SUPPORT STAFF THAT

THINK LIKE OWNERS

Adapting strategically with specific technology trends is invaluable. The strongest example of that right now, is how YouTube has made casual video content just as valuable as a traditional TV network. What this means is: Your simple clips are not being judged for lack of special effects. Its completely about the quality of the core message being recorded. Right now, for potential patients who have never met you before, the fastest way to feel safe with you and confident of your skills, is by being able to see short clips of you speaking to your values. We can teach you how to get comfortable in front of the camera and how to produce high quality messages with simple tools.

Underneath the pop-culture view of Portland, as the kindest, foodie loving neverland of the west coast is ONE common denominator, an oasis of healers. You cannot drop a rock in this city without hitting a clinic or independent MeetUp, or community event related to healing. When an entire city is permeated with all things mindfulness, whole organic food access and self-care, you have a thriving population that is thinking more clearly. We are making a strong case for why this is, and how other communities can develop this in their own back yard! Moving here isn't the answer, but healing your community is!

Growth hacktivism is about empowering staff teams to participate in a greater vision for the clinic potential! The purpose behind activating employees as business model shapers, is about a thriving clinic that can easily support living wages. Research shows that living wage employees  outperform traditionally paid employees in productivity, innovation and  service. Ultimately, this kind of empowerment mindset from all support staff, minimizes the stress load on doctor owners. Developing your own talent is the difference between co-dependence on other professionals who do NOT understand our industry. Huge money saver.

MEET THE TEAM

Hello! I'm Keirsten, a passionate solopreneur with a serious grip on what the future of medicine needs to hold. When I researched top marketing agencies before starting this, I was shocked to find how few had any experience in health care.  Alternative medicine desperately needs marketing talent that can speak up from empowerment and I have the back story from transforming #survivorship to #thrivorship uniquely qualifying me for this.

LEAD RESEARCHER

I started Lime Tree Advocacy in a computer lab at the Portland Art Institute during my last year of study. I studied graphic design, web design, marketing communications, digital trends along with my personal fascinations with the back end of health care, and alternative medicine modalities. Streamlining marketing efforts into a systematic size for individual clinics is a lot of fun. Ideally I'd love to co-design a franchise model.

I love my Cherokee roots & Sequoyah's undertaking to mimic the English alphabet to expand possibilities through reading and writing. I am doing something similar with watching big business marketing trends and translating what works into a small business size. What this counts for is empowering  alternative providers for new growth opportunities, and powerfully engaging our communities in a greater understanding of care options.

In the wake of a lead opt-in obsessive tech culture, larger companies are handing out thousands of dollars worth of reports and research in exchange for an email address. Fantastic, I have spares! Mec Labs, Forrester, and Adobe are among the top producers of valuable insights on tech trends, web interface best practices, and consumer search habits. That recovering virgo side of me nerds out on sifting the gold from those studies.

 

BACKSTORY

I'm extremely grateful for naturopaths, chiropractors, acupuncturists, body workers, herbalists and energy workers BECAUSE they saved me.  As a full circle thriving survivor of domestic violence and subsequent chronic pain, I wouldn't be here without these valuable alternatives.

From 2008 to 2010, I was plagued with chronic pain due to inflammation from years of blown out adrenal glands. Too many years of high stress from abuse will do that. With dwindling resources, finding practitioners I could trust was a nightmare. Upon recovery, I vowed to transform this. Research currently shows that only 38% of the population have tried alternative care at least once.
