My name is Yvonne and I’m a board-certified toxicologist, ingredient & chemical safety expert, and mom of two spunky girls. I’m obsessed with meditation, manifestation, and using various tools & techniques to connect to my Higher Self and awaken my consciousness. I also love energy healing, crystals, and all the woo woo stuff! I’ve got a PhD in Environmental Toxicology, a certification by the American Board of Toxicology, and over 20 years of experience researching and studying chemical & ingredient safety. There’s so much misinformation and confusion around what’s safe & healthy so I’m here to be your guide to living a truly toxin-free, high-vibrational life.
YOU DESERVE TO HAVE ALL THAT YOU DESIRE RIGHT NOW.
Even though I studied toxicity for many, many years I never thought twice about what I was putting on or in my body until I suffered a health crisis triggered by chronic stress and an inflammatory lifestyle back in 2012. I found myself dealing with horrible physical ailments like leaky gut, brain fog, autoimmunity, and adrenal burnout in addition to mental health issues like anxiety, depression, full-blown panic attacks, which took all the enjoyment out of my life.
I turned to functional medicine and holistic healing to help me find the root causes of my conditions. I changed my diet, adopted a mindfulness and meditation practice, and changed my mindset, which drastically improved my health but there was still that missing piece I needed to figure out to get myself back to feeling 100%. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks – I needed to address the issue of environmental toxin exposure through food, air, water, personal care products, furniture, clothing, and so much more. Once I ditched the toxins I felt like the younger, more vibrant version of myself again!
So how did I find myself on the entrepreneurial path? I realized throughout my years in the lab and in the corporate world that working for other people’s dreams was soul-sucking and left me lifeless. Once my first daughter was born the thought of missing her milestones and being glued to a computer was absolutely gut-wrenching so I decided to quit my job and start my own business. I pursued metalsmithing and jewelry-making for a while, but my heart always brought me back to toxicology & science.
It’s truly my highest excitement to teach, inspire, and empower moms to regain their mental edge and find their passion in life because I’ve been the groggy, irritable, brain-fogged mom who couldn’t remember a lot things that happened with my kids, which is so heartbreaking. I know the challenges of balancing the demands of motherhood while fulfilling our own desires so I’m here to show you what I learned the hard way through years of pushing and forcing things which got me nowhere. Now I know that life is full of joy, ease, and flow if we allow it to be and I can help you find your identity outside of being a mom without the guilt because when you’re the Next Level version of yourself the whole world benefits!
