Christine Webster

Designer & Beekeeper – Beekeeping became a way to heal myself after a weary decade in Chicago’s advertising industry. For ten years, I spent at least 60 hours a week sitting at a desk, squinting into a monitor, under a beam of fluorescent light, stories high above miles of pavement, sleep-deprived, and seeing too much of myself in my wilting desk plants.

Encountering life-changing opportunities of sharing massage with injured high school track and field mates at age 16, followed by feeling and seeing energy in various forms and colors at age 22, then discovering yoga that dissipated my own back pain at age 26, my path in bodywork continues on a passionate and magical trajectory.

Victoria “Tori” Tong

My creativity sparked at a very early age, especially being raised by my grandmother. I remember having this strong, innate desire to explore, create, and discover. Her house was always a haven for self-expression- from silly wallpaper hats to art projects, and play pretending. My relationship with my parents was and still is a challenging but incredibly rewarding endeavor. Because of my childhood, I ended up developing many self-worth related issues as a young adult. Read more>>

I have always been involved in marketing something ever since graduating from college (UCF) many moons ago. Back in 2010, I left corporate America and decided to pursue my entrepreneurial dream of opening a photography business while providing marketing consulting services to small businesses as well. I had been shooting images for many years, but finally decided to take the plunge. Read more>>

Lauren Haug

I knew from a very young age what I came here to do, I remember in high school my friends joked and teased, calling me Dr, Lauren. When I began college, I knew that my end goal was to become a mental health therapist. I remember when I finished my undergrad, someone asked me if I was excited and I said: “nope, I’m not done yet.” Read more>>

I have always had an interest in artistic endeavors. I entered an amateur photography contest when I was 13. Despite being devastated, I didn’t win the grand prize (against plenty of adults), I loved the whole process. Graduating high school, I won a small art scholarship as an award for my entries. After graduating from college, my Grandfather gifted me his film camera that he bought in Vietnam. Read more>>

Drew Rummell

I’ve always wanted to own my own business, but I didn’t know what field I specifically wanted to be in. I have a curious mind, I love science, I enjoy problem-solving, and I like working with people, so I took a medical path in college thinking I would like to own my own general practice as a doctor. I majored in Neuroscience, graduated, took the MCAT, applied to medical school, and decided that wasn’t what I wanted. Read more>>

Sandrine D’Andrea

I was born in the south of France in the city of Marseille. Close to the ocean, very connected to nature. Raised by my grandparents (on my father’s side) until the age of ten, then by my mother. I was exposed very early on to the use of conventional medicine and alternative medicine as well. I guess it opened my eyes really early on to the effect of both sciences on my body.
