She is a thoughtful, considerate and intelligent person who is up to challenge popular conventions when it comes to health, wellness & the environment. Her honesty & playfulness shine bright in her interview & images, enjoy!
What do you love most about yourself?
My passion, curiosity and desire to keep growing
There is a certain perception that living a healthy lifestyle is inaccessible or unattainable. What advice would you give to those seeking more self care, but don't know where to begin?
I just finished reading Lisa Levitt Gainsley’s Book of Lymph. It is so informative and really puts healing into your own hands by demonstrating how to do self-lymphatic massage.
Meditation and time in nature are two evidence-based practices for reducing stress and optimizing health. Unfortunately, not everyone has access to nature like they should but even it means building a garden box outside your window there are so many ways to connect with nature and bring more of it to our homes and communities.
You are having an off day, what is your first move to getting centered?
Warm bath and a hot shower
When do you feel the most seen?
In the presence of my dude and my mom. I really feel like I am able to be my full self in their presence. They always give me the space to explore ideas, make mistakes, say the wrong thing and deep belly laugh.
Who are you when no one else is around?
What was your last really good idea?
To mold test my home and purchase a new air filter.
Share a story about communal bathing—
After graduating high school, on the night before leaving Malibu and setting off in different directions; college, travel, work etc. my friends and I all stayed up all night and skinny dipped in the ocean under the full moon.
I think skinny dipping is a lost art that is seriously undervalued in adulthood. I love visiting the Ojai natural hot springs and watching dragonfly’s swirl around you.
What is your most beloved experience with water?
Love this question. Water is my happy place. I have very fond memories of being in the Pacific Ocean in Malibu on a crystal-clear day floating on a surfboard with my girlfriends. I also cherish the memory of being in Kauai with you (Chelsea) bathing in the Haena cove.
What is your superpower?
My intuition & sensitivity
We are transitioning seasons, what do you look forward to in summer?
This summer I am taking some time off work and traveling to Taos. I am rarely able to travel since I spend so much time on-call as a doula. I am excited to unplug for the first time in a very long time.
What are your top three products from the ON&ON pantry?
-C & The Moon, Malibu Made Body Scrub
-On & On Frankincense Soap
-Yamuna Foot Wakers
Thank You CARSON!!
