Hi! I’m Jennifer.
I am so glad you’re here!
I’m all about living a simple, healthy, happy lifestyle, preparing real food, creating natural products and helping you do the same. I like to call this “Wholistic Wellness”; getting every aspect of your life healthy, not just by food, but also from relationships, career, creativity and spirituality. I am a certified holistic health coach, Master Herbalist and a Board Certified Traditional Naturopath. I am also an artist and have 2 etsy shops – one is Silver Peanut; I make heirloom remembrance jewelry and the other is Impressionisms which is hand stamped, mixed media jewelry with “custom impressions of love and inspiration”.
Who this site is for:
This site is for those that are serious about making a change in their health and life. Those who want to take their well-being into their own hands; to take responsibility instead of a pill. For those that want want to reduce stress and anxiety; ditch depression. Those that want to boost their energy and endurance. And, for those that want a healthy, non-invasive approach to alternative well-care and don’t know where to start.
HEALTH IS FOR A LIFETIME!
