Karissa Desnoyers, Owner
Karissa Desnoyers is the co-owner of 5th & Wellness. Upon graduating from Lynn University with her bachelor’s degree in Business, Karissa knew she wanted to open her own business. What she never imagined was that business being in the medical industry alongside her mother Jennifer Koutsodontis. Although Karissa had already been in the industry for 5 years, she was thrilled when Jennifer asked if she wanted to open their own practice in East Boca. Karissa saw the vision Jennifer had for the business and took a leap of faith that has brought her nothing but joy and success.
Since taking on this role, Karissa has devoted her time and energy to making 5th & Wellness a legacy for her family. She takes pride in building a safe environment for her staff, where she listens to their concerns, pushes them to their greatest potential, and sets family foundations in their relationships. The friendships she’s built within her staff and patients have been nothing short of rewarding. Her vision for the business is simple. Growth, Consistency, and Sustainability. 5th & Wellness has only scratched the surface of what she believes it is capable of.
