{home is essential} it’s a lifestyle

young living just launched the most amazing new products and i am so excited to share them with you, but i also want to share a little bit about my own story of how i got here…

over 20 years ago, i received a degree in environmental studies from the university of colorado in boulder. during those four years i learned about public policy and planning related to the environment. i learned about the synthetic chemicals that man has created that are causing autoimmune diseases, cancer, birth defects, and much more in animals and humans.

when i was 25, i went back to school for interior design and became passionate about green design and healthy, environmentally friendly interiors.

when i was 30, we moved to oregon and i focused on helping my coworkers and others in the industry learn about green design.

when i was 32, i had our first child and decided to stay at home with my baby. it was the hardest decision i have ever made because i was so passionate about interior design and wanted to further my career in in creating healthy, environmentally friendly interiors. by 35, i was home with two kiddos and they were keeping me super busy!

in 2014, i bought my young living starter kit when both of my kids were coming home from school with yucky germs. i wanted thieves to boost their wellness!

guess what? i got more than essential oils when i bought that starter kit.

i found a lifestyle and a passion to help others create a healthy, family friendly, and environmentally friendly home and life of their own!

the truth is, not everybody can afford to build an environmentally friendly home from the ground up, but we can choose what products we introduce into our home and put into and on the bodies of our children and ourselves.

honestly, i still have a huge passion for interior design and i will be happy to help clients source environmentally friendly, recycled, handmade, and vintage options for their homes, but you can bet that i will also introduce them to the young living products that they can use in their home to further enhance a healthy, environmentally friendly lifestyle!


last month, young living broke ground on a new world headquarters…

“The world-class building was designed to complement Young Living’s philosophy of living harmoniously with nature. The flowing, organic design enhances a sense of community, connectivity, and communication, with a focus on green initiatives throughout the indoor and outdoor designs.”

young living is an amazingly thoughtful company dedicated to providing safe products for our homes and family, and is committed to the environment. you can join me on this family friendly and environmentally friendly adventure by going to home is essential!
