Thanks for checking out my website. I hope you find the articles, tips, and videos useful and encouraging to live a healthier, more natural-minded life.
I’m an Air Force pilot’s wife, an all-natural mama to three small kids, an essential oil addict, and a lover of traveling. My family is everything to me—my husband and kids, and my doTERRA family.
I was introduced to doTERRA Essential Oils when my daughter was just a few months old. I signed up with the Family Physician’s Kit as a Wellness Advocate. I got my oils, and within only a few weeks of using them in my household, I decided I could build a business with doTERRA. I haven’t looked back. It’s been an amazing experience. My job is to help others learn how to take care of themselves and their kids by using essential oils and other wellness practices, inspiring them to strive for natural solutions for things like food choices to personal health issues to household cleaners, and more.
Since joining doTERRA, we’ve been able to double our family income, and I do it all from home. I believe in the products and the lifestyle doTERRA promotes, and growing the business to Platinum status as a doTERRA leader has been a dream. I am excited for the possibilities my future holds in this company, and for the Wellness Advocates I manage. You can read more about my Journey to Platinum here.
My husband is active duty in the Air Force—we LOVE the military life. We are currently stationed in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and we love it here. Military life is not always easy, but it’s the beautiful, messy life we chose. I still have moments (or let’s be honest, days or weeks) when I want him to “get out” and move on to other things, but I don’t think we will anytime soon. The always-moving lifestyle, exploring, and travelling to new places seems perfect for us.
I have not always been natural-minded. Before I had kids, I didn’t think twice before popping over-the-counter medications or using mainstream cleaning products. But after getting pregnant and nursing, and especially after having an infant on many medications, I started to look for healthier alternatives for running my household. That’s when I found the benefits of using essential oils and the natural-mom lifestyle. We use essential oils in recipes, cleaning products, and other crazy, crunchy things like making our own baby wipes, tandem and “extended” breastfeeding, baby-led weaning, and babywearing. You can learn all about these things in my Motherhood and Healthy Home blogs and videos.
We had never planned to homeschool. Both of my parents are public school educators, so teaching my kids at home was definitely not on my radar. But my husband was homeschooled from preschool through high school, and look at him now! With all our moving around, we took a step back and decided homeschooling worked best for our lifestyle. Today, we are a part of a lovely Classical Conversations community, and we absolutely love it—the kids do too!
