How It All Began
Since childhood, nature has played an important part in my lifestyle. My mother worked at home planting gardens and cooking for the family. Every day we would eat fresh, home-cooked meals, from homemade bread and pasta to the fresh sauces made from the vegetables she grew and canned herself. My father, a chiropractor and farmer, made a living by helping people and animals. I went and learned by each of their sides. I was truly a daddy's girl. Our livestock were all raised on pesticide-free corn and grains. As their children the animals were never treated with hormones or immunizations and we were never sick.
I spent all my time with my horses and the other animals. I loved all creatures, big and small, and noticed how they would sometimes eat unusual things like plants, soil and tree bark. They ate certain plants and leaves in order to get the vitamins and minerals they needed. My curiosity in their behavior led me to begin studying plants and herbs. I aspired to be like my father and mother and experimented in wild crafting herbs. I began to make my own remedies to help my horses, & people, just as they did through both chiropractic work and healthy, organic style of farming. My mother, who is one of the greatest chefs in the world, used organic ingredients as well.
I was taught at an early age that there was nothing more important to our physical well-being than incorporating only natural organic products into our diet and onto our skin. This belief has played a large role in my lifestyle, leading me to study Holistic Nutrition at Clayton College of Natural Health, along with Aesthetics/Massage. Today, I am the founder and owner of Tree Froggy True Organic Performance Products, my brand of Certified Organic skincare products. I am proud to say my products have been developed to improve the skin’s appearance and overall well-being, using my and my family’s belief that nothing is better for your body than natural, organic products.
