My oil journey began at a yoga retreat in the middle of nowhere WV in 2012. I only knew one person, the friend I attended with, and we were told to report to the barn for our evening group activity. Next thing I knew I was sniffing oils of all kinds from a company with a funny name--doTERRA. I didn't forget the name, and the following year I saw a friend of mine posting about her essential oil classes--there was that name again. Fast forward to a long journey with newly discovered food allergies, seasonal allergies, a son with chronic health challenges and allergies--I was ready for a change. I felt powerless to help my son and his current medicine regimen wasn't improving his conditions. I prayed for an answer, another way. We turned to chiropractics, and it was there doTERRA was once again offered as a way to support systemic balance and healthy immunity. I contacted my friend, Dana Feldmeier in FL and told her I wanted all the oils!
I started out with a bang teaching classes and building a team, telling everyone I knew, using them in my yoga classes, and sampling people everywhere. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I taught oil classes for other expecting mothers, and used them to keep the delivery room calm (& smelling great). As a newly single mother with no work, I dove into building income so we could survive during a great time of need. I began teaching more yoga, working in training for yoga companies, and I set my oil business to slow motion. Over the years, I have maintained a newsletter, and many people still turn to me for recommendations.
I met the love of my life Jared in 2016, and we were married in September 2019. He loves essential oils (& yoga) too, and we are excited to reconnect to sharing this lifestyle with others together. My favorite thing about the "oily life" is how empowered I feel to help support my family's physical and emotional well-being. We believe traditional medicine is valuable and has its place in our lives. Using essential oils has impacted our budget as well because we are able to use most oils for multiple purposes. We make our own cleaning products to keep chemicals and toxins out of our home (as much as possible), I use them in my skincare, we diffuse oils in place of burning candles, and so much more! My kids love them, tell their friends about them, and help us when we teach classes.
In addition to loving doTERRA products, I work in marketing and communications, am a mother to two amazing children, stay physically active in Orangetheory Fitness classes and teaching yoga, and we are very involved in our church community. I believe the Lord has given us everything we need to support aligned, balanced living via the earth's provisions. This is why my family tries to live as close to nature as four city-dwellers can live.
My family would love to support your family's journey to empowered healthy living--give us a call!
