I suffered most of my life due to misinformed advice from so-called experts. I followed many of the health programs you're familiar with. It's only when I learned to ask the right questions and become my own advocate did I start to live my best life.
As a self-described wellness explorer, Mother of four and CEO, it's my mission and passion to bring you tailored advice from trusted experts from all around the world, so you can live a better life.
I was born on an organic biodynamic farm in Switzerland and raised in Europe where my father, as a chemist, would teach me about the important elements needed as part of my health-promoting diet. As I got older my grandmother Mutti would send me into the fields to gather herbs for our family’s tinctures. While many of them provided healing for our family’s ailments—I suffered from debilitating eczema for which nothing seemed to work-not even traditional medicine.
It was painful, embarrassing and holding me back.
One day, I turned to an acupuncturist who provided me a curative path through herbs and treatments. The symptoms subsided over time and I was thrilled. But then, everything changed. While going through routine testing as I prepared for pregnancy, I was confronted with dangerous levels of toxicity from heavy metals in the herbs I had ingested. I was blindsided! This crisis ignited my passion and promise to ensure that others would never endure the same challenges that I had.

I have travelled around the world and back.
My journey began in the South of France—where I became fascinated with the French Paradox (the idea that the French people drink wine and eat foods high in fats and yet remain one of the world’s healthiest cultures). My curiosity led me to the researchers at the University of Bordeaux, where I discovered the power of bioactive trans-resveratrol from the seeds, stems, and skins of red wine grapes. Knowing that trans-resveratrol could change lives for so many back home, I cultivated partnerships with these leading scientists and the vineyards themselves–this would eventually transform millions of people’s life’s as they incorporated the anti-aging benefits of this powerful nutrient into their lives.
Since then, I’ve slept in the huts of the Guna People of Coastal Panama while learning about the therapeutic power of cacao. I’ve explored the wet markets of Beijing to learn how and why Chinese women have ingested collagen for beauty benefits for hundreds of years. I’ve visited the spice markets of India to learn about the healing powers of turmeric, and in the orchards of Calabria, I learned how bergamot can be one of our most powerful heart-health ingredients. From Alaska to Okinawa, my travels have led me from the corners of the Earth straight to the sources of the purest ingredients. Along the way, we’ve created transformational fair trade partnerships in the spirit of sustainability.
So how can my journey change your everyday life?
Through all of my travels, and my day-to-day life as a busy CEO, wife, and mother, I have had to seek out the best possible ways to maximize my health and vitality in the least amount of time. What I’ve learned to be true: the smallest changes can make a world of impact. Yes, you *can* double the impact of your sleep hours. Yes, you *can* turn on your body’s own healing mechanisms by making simple switches to what you eat and when you eat it. Yes, you *can* lose weight, gain energy and boost your immunity by simply tweaking the decisions you already make. I want to share all of this with you as we take this journey together…
