Meet our Staff


Nick Beers, Store Manager
Hi, I'm Nick! I was born and raised in Columbia, and I've been at Garner's since the first day it opened! I love learning new things everyday about natural health and how supplements and herbs react in the body! My favorite product has to be Now MCT oil! I put it in my smoothie every morning!
Emily Crawford, CNHP
Hi I'm Emily. I found my interest in natural medicine when i began working as a Registered Nurse at Great Smokies Medical Center in Asheville NC. Integrative medicine, Healthy diet and lifestyle became staples when my father was diagnosed with kidney cancer. Once i moved back home i sought out somewhere i could use my knowledge as a nurse and also my desire for natural medicine and that is when i began working at Garner's Natural Life in 2011. I love learning and using what i learn to educate those interested. In January of 2016 i extended my education and received my Certified Natural Health Practitioner. I love working at Garner's because i want people to know they have other choices than what conventional medicine offers, and also that there are safe ways to incorporate both into your life. 
Jeff Garner
Jeff moved down to Columbia SC in 2010 to run Garner's Natural Life, Columbia. Jeff is usually in the back doing all the receiving and business responsibilities but you can find him everywhere from helping customers to taking out the trash. When he is not at the store he loves to be outside riding his bike. He fuels his bike rides with Amazing Grass Peanut Butter Protein powder. And also loves the Rx bars for a quick tasty protein treat. 
Ashley Servati
I'm Ashley. I'm an aspiring nurse and free-spirited, natural-minded mother of two. I began my journey into the world of natural health when my daughter was born 4 months prematurely and since then, I have learned so much about the importance of living a holistic lifestyle.My favorite products would be Ancient Nutrition's Bone Broth Protein, and Charlotte's Web CBD oil. Both have made such an amazing difference in my life. I fully believe in and trust the products Garner's has to offer to keep my family and I healthy! 
Farrah Garner
Hi, I'm Farrah, I have a B.A in Environmental Studies and Philosophy, and I love learning more about natural health everyday! I enjoy yoga, essential oils, a vegan lifestyle, and helping others learn natural ways to achieve their optimal well-being!

Heather Noffko
Hey I’m Heather! I’ve always had a passion for helping people and animals alike. My interest in holistic health was piqued while working in veterinary medicine. I felt there had to be natural alternatives some of the treatments. I began to seek out healthier, more effective ways to treat common problems in animals. In turn, I began exploring how to improve my own health in a natural way. This is how I found Garner’s! I am blessed to work in an environment where I learn each day and I am able assist others in their naturopathic endeavors. My cat, Beauregard, loves how Nordic Naturals Omega 3 Pet calms his itchy skin AND keeps his coat shiny. And for us humans, my favorite product is Gaia’s Ashwagandha Root to lower our stress levels!
