What¹s your must-have Gaia product? Lemongrass Laundry Detergent, it smells great and it¹s the first detergent I¹ve found that¹s safe and REALLY works on all of our clothes, even the gym clothes.
Where do you live? In Irving, TX - just outside of Dallas
What started the non toxic movement in your life? When my daughter was born 10 years ago I started reading and really researching what was going into our home, onto our skin and into our bodies. I feel like I fell down a rabbit hole, but ended up changing everything from our medicine to my skincare to our eating habits. When my husband was diagnosed as diabetic in 2013 I took an even deeper dive into wanting to understand autoimmune diseases and how we can heal and protect our bodies and became a certified Health & Wellness Coach in 2016. We don¹t live a completely legalistic non-toxic lifestyle but I always feel like 90/10 is a good place to strive for. Every little bit helps, it was a slow transition for sure.
What¹s your favorite room in your home? Probably my library. I end up working in there more days than my home office. There¹s something about being surround by books and photos that makes me feel at home.
Why is having a women owned business important to you? Because I want my daughter and eventually my son to see a world where women and men are equally strong and savvy & understand that gender doesn¹t preclude you from a seat at the table. And if no one will invite you to the table? Build your own.
What¹s your favorite scent? So hard to pick just one. I¹d have to say Lavender & Lime. Ask me next month it¹ll change.
