About

Hi! I'm Emily! I'm a free range mama helping women conquer simple, healthy living with a side of science! I believe in whole body health and holistic wellness, and I have a background in science and in the medical field; therefore, it is important to me to know the facts behind the choices I am making. I value my faith as the number one purpose of life, and I value simplicity and good stewardship of resources. Motherhood is the most amazing experience I’ve ever had, and I am passionate about being a physically and emotionally well mama! I hope you enjoy crunchy living as much as I do! :)
