About WellSeek

A Journey begins when you listen closely and seek within.

in the beginning...

I never planned to start WellSeek. It was something that happened when I listened to my instincts and took a chance.

As a biotech scientist working in early-stage R&D, I loved geeking out over my data models to understand how our DNA, metabolism, and nutrition interacted to make our living bodies work the way they do.

But I found myself feeling more and more disconnected from the actual people the data was supposed to help.

So in 2014, I made the decision to leave behind biotech to explore how I could do it differently. As I embarked on my path as an entrepreneur, I found myself in the company of others who were just as driven to help people seek their own wellness journey. Today, I have the privilege of collaborating with a talented team of partners and an amazing community of nutrition and health experts as we stay committed to our shared mission of guiding others on their path of health and happiness.

What began as a ‘gut feeling’ has grown into a global online community that's challenging the status quo of our health & wellness industry. Together, we continue to promote wellness that allows all individuals to feel empowered to live no matter where they’re starting from,

And redefine what health truly is.
