Laura — Owner/President/CEO
My greatest achievement is my family. I have three children and five grandchildren. I have been married for thirty years.
I love spontaneity, laughing with my friends and family, and roller coasters…well anything that moves fast! I have been tandem skydiving three times and bungee jumped once.
I have a passion for finding safe and natural ways to manage or eliminate pain and discomfort. I had my first back injury when I was fifteen years old. From that point on, safe pain management became a priority. I enjoy sharing my “great finds” with others.
Life is great if you’re looking the right way!

I am a retired Colonel after 34 years of service in the United States Army. I now work for an engineering firm dealing with physical security. I am a fact finder and problem solver.
My hobbies include scuba diving, weight lifting, fixing anything that is broken, helping others fix their broken things, building things, paintball and listening to 70’s music.
I am the Co-Owner of Doctor Hoy’s Natural Pain Relief and manage much of the background operations.
Christy — Office Manager
I have been working with DOCTOR HOY’S™ Natural Pain Relief since the beginning when Laura and her husband, Joachim, bought the company. At that time, I had severe back pain from a misbehaving disk. The Pain Relief Gel™ was one of the vital things that got me through. I still use it for my aches and pains and have added Arnica Boost™ to my daily regimen. I love it! So often in my home I tell my kids, “Put Arnica Boost on that!”
I have six beautiful children, two grandkids, and another grandchild on the way. I love playing and watching sports, music, and being outside in nature, especially on a jet ski.
I have a degree in Respiratory Therapy and have specialized in the critical care and Neonatal areas for over eleven years. I love helping people breathe easier and feel better.
Helping DOCTOR HOY’S™ grow over all these years has been rewarding and fulfilling, especially because I get to work with my best Bestie, Laura!
Dorthea — Assembler Extraordinaire
I grew up on a potato farm in Idaho and met my husband in college. We have three children, six grandchildren, and four great grandchildren. We had many business ventures, including professional house cleaning, a catering business, and three stores. We got to know the original owners of DOCTOR HOY’S™. My husband had severe back issues and the products helped him stay away from hard painkillers. DOCTOR HOY’S™ kept him nearly pain free.
My daughter, Laura, had several health issues and also started using DOCTOR HOY’S™. When the business became available to purchase, the original owners wanted to sell to someone who believed in the products. Laura and Joachim fit the bill! They purchased the business because they love the products.
I have named myself the “assembler extraordinaire” because I assemble travel packs, sample packs for conferences, hundred packs for businesses, and gift bags.

I first started using the Pain Relief Gel™ because I was having headaches. I was taking Excedrin every day and needed to find an alternative. I no longer take Excedrin. It is amazing! I started using Arnica Boost™ for any inflammation or bruises. I love how versatile it is. I use it on my kids constantly with growing pains, bruises or even sunburns.
I graduated from the Arizona School of Massage Therapy in 2001. I have worked for different spas and at a chiropractic office. In my experience, this is by far the best product on the market! I continue doing massage therapy part-time. I love seeing the benefits of both massage and DOCTOR HOY’S™ products with my clients.
I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two kids. We love swimming, going to the movies, hikes and doing crafts. We love going to the zoo or farm. I am passionate about animals. We also love vacationing in California and, you guessed it, we go to Sea World or any other animal exhibit!
Barbara — Customer Service Representative
I am the newest member of the DOCTOR HOY’S™ team.
I love the DOCTOR HOY’S™ products and use them daily. I use the Arnica Boost™ on my arthritis in my hands and knees, and when I have leg cramps. I also layer the Arnica Boost™ on top of the Pain Relief Gel™ on my back every morning, and I usually repeat the application once or twice during the day. I cannot manage without my DOCTOR HOY’S™ Pain Relief products! I am always passing out samples to my friends and acquaintances—in fact, anyone who talks about aches and pain!
My husband and I moved to Arizona six years ago from the Seattle area. We love Arizona! All of our children are grown and raising families. I taught school and am now retired. I was also a florist and loved making wedding bouquets. I enjoy reading, swimming, sewing, baking, sometimes crafting, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
Aubrey — Writer
Rheumatoid arthritis made it difficult to fulfill my responsibilities as a young mother. I would cringe while opening jars of jelly for peanut butter sandwiches or clicking car seats. Each morning I awoke stiff, sore, and discouraged. My friend introduced me to DOCTOR HOY’S™ products. I now rub on Arnica Boost™ first thing every morning. I love that I experience pain relief without worrying about the side effects.
I write articles about DOCTOR HOY’S™ products and other topics related to health and wellness. My favorite pieces are feature articles. I love to interact with our customers and share their stories.
I graduated from Utah State University with a degree in Communication Studies and a minor in Russian. I studied and wrote research about communication in family and interpersonal contexts. I remain passionate about communication. It is the key to successful relationships.
I married my high school sweetheart. We have lived in Arizona for nearly three years. We have two sons, ages three and newborn. Together we enjoy fishing, camping, hiking, and cheering on the Arizona Diamondbacks! I love naps and ice cream.
