a nourished life begins when you find your purpose to seek.
From the founder
My interest in nutrition, health, and wellness was born out of a need to answer my own childhood inquiries on how life worked. After my mother nearly lost her life during a routine hospital procedure when I was 12, that event turned into an overwhelming curiosity about the fragility of health in life. That led me towards a career as a biotech scientist, where I was allowed to professionally geek out over data models to understand how our DNA, metabolism, and nutrition interacted to make our living bodies work the way they do.
But as a scientist, I felt so far upstream from directly helping others.
That's when I made the decision to carve a path in entrepreneurship to explore how I could do it differently. At first, I looked at everything through a scientific lens, but I realized a bigger impact could be made if I helped more health professionals help their own communities. With our team, we are committed to helping purpose-driven businesses share their message with the world,
So that it may guide others to discover their own path towards health and happiness.
