John and Katie Pipek
Hello! We are the Pipeks, John and Katie. We are the owners of LIVE Hydration Spa Kalispell. We both grew up in the Midwest; John in Minnesota and I in Nebraska. We met in 2018 after we each moved to the Flathead Valley in order to enjoy the mountains and outdoors lifestyle. John worked for the railroad as a conductor, but decided to get back into plumbing in order to spend more time at home. I’m a registered nurse, having attended the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. After graduation in 2016 I began working in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at one of the women’s hospitals in Omaha.
Once I decided to move to Kalispell, I was fortunate to be offered a position within the NICU at our local hospital. I loved taking care of the babies in the NICU but found myself looking for some change, and transferred to the Cardiac Cath Lab in September 2021. I gained some valuable experience yet it still wasn’t quite what I was looking for, and realized I wanted to find a way to help people with their preventative health. After trying the services for myself and feeling the positive effects I knew this was what I wanted to do. John and I decided to open our own location here in Kalispell and are excited to share what LIVE has to offer with our amazing mountain community!
