I would like to share with you how and why I started using essential oils. 
I was introduced to essential oils in 2013 by my sister when I was searching for a way to naturally reduce occasional head tension. You know the type; a churning tummy, someone knocking behind your eyes, and a bit of blurry vision. I was also experiencing occasional seasonal and environmental threats, which lead me to have a runny nose and itchy eyes. One day I was experiencing that good old occasional head tension and decided to stop at my sister’s home after work. The first time I used an essential oil, the change in how I felt was immediate and I was amazed! I knew in that moment I had found something incredible; a secret I could not keep to myself but had to share with the world. I am so grateful my sister shared this knowledge with me. By choosing to use essential oils as my go-to for wellness support, I am choosing natural alternatives that do not leave me with pesky side effects. Years later it has simply become a way of life.


My parents moved to Oregon when I was one year old. I have been raised in this beautiful state on the west side in the heart of wine country. I am fortunate to have grown up in wide-open spaces with clean air, freedom to explore, and had many experiences caring for animals, including sheep and horses. Although our family property has now been converted into a vineyard, I cherish those childhood memories which have shaped who I am today. I have two sisters and one brother, plus seven nieces and nephews. We all have a good time when we get together!


I love traveling! Spending time at the beautiful Oregon coast where I can sit and watch the waves, contemplating life and all it has to offer, while sipping a delicious cup of coffee. Visiting beautiful Oregon wineries, tasting the fruits of hard labor, and witnessing the dream come true for their owners. Game nights, outdoor movie night, camping and playing on the water are among many of the things I enjoy! I love spending time with friends and having good conversations. When we toss in playing and learning about oils, well, it brings an extra joy to my heart. 



As a child I dreamed of being a vet, always helping the injured bird or adopting the next cat to come to the door. This is my cat Ebony, who follows me everywhere! In my 20s, I would pray that Jesus would lead me in the right direction and help me find a path he would be proud of.

As an adult, my passion for helping others continued to grow. My focus became on helping others and I searched for ways to bring joy into the lives of my family, friends, and coworkers. I finally found a way to do this when I started using essential oils for my health and wellness needs. I quickly learned most people are searching for something and by sharing essentials oils with them, I helped them find joy. This has brought a sense of balance and calm to my life, and peace to my heart.  



I have found so many ways to incorporate essential oils into my daily life. I use them to support and soothe my body and mind, support my immune and respiratory systems, relieve head and neck tension, freshen and clean my laundry, enhance the flavors of my food, and clean my home.

It is important to know not all essential oils are grown, harvested, or bottled equally, with care and efficacy. The purity of an essential oil determines its wellness value. Essential oils have irrevocably changed my life, allowing my body to function as it should naturally and gently.


Through hard work, we can all achieve our dreams. Have you been looking for a way to serve others? Have you been wanting to create an amazing business for yourself? Not sure how to accomplish both at the same time? I didn’t know that the first time I used an essential oil it would change my life. It has ended up being one of the biggest blessings and I want to share these blessings with you! Together we can help you reach your goals and dreams.

I believe everyone should have the opportunity to be empowered to find solutions, use these solutions to receive a positive wellness experience, find solutions that not only work but are free of chemicals, fillers, and toxins. I also believe we should enjoy the journey, learn about essential oils and their uses in a timeframe that feels comfortable for each individual. Ultimately feeling comfortable and excited to use them in our home, with family and pets.

I cannot wait to meet you and share the amazing benefits of essential oils. Let’s connect, sit down and have a cup of coffee or other beverage, and get to know each other. Are you ready to get started on your new wellness journey?
