One of my fondest memories takes place in my mother’s vegetable garden. I was four years old and helping her water her lively tomato vines. I remember questioning the varying green and red hues of the tomatoes before my mom picked off a bright, red drop and handed it to me while explaining the life cycle of a plant from just a tiny seedling to its buoyant, edible form. From that moment, I was hooked and enamored by the power of plants.
My passion for food, ingredients and wellness blossomed as I studied Nutrition and took up yoga teaching as an undergraduate student at NYU. As my knowledge about systemic health and the role nutrition plays in maintaining wellness expanded, I took an interest in our body’s largest organ, our skin. The importance of feeding our skin topically with the same vital phytonutrients we put into our bodies became my focus. I am currently attending NYU and will receive my Masters in Nutrition. I chose this program so that I may bring the highest level of education and knowledge to my products and clients.
