Top 3 reasons you love what you do

I love helping people discover their inner and outer beauty. I love empowering others. I love creating.

Why is IN important to you

I am passionate about helping people find healthier ways to safely and organically, pamper and nurture themselves body mind and soul, IN is a haven to educate.

What is the future of the beauty industry?

I think we are all looking for a way to get back to the basics, less is more. Educating ourselves to be savvy shoppers is the way of the future in what has become a very misleading world of ingredients.

What are your hopes for the beauty industry

I hope we can bring integrity back into our products. Money and ego has driven out what is important. What we put on our bodies should heal, not produce disease.

Best part of being a part of IN?

Participating in Horst’s crusade to bring beauty back to nature.

What are your biggest hopes for IN?

I hope IN is able to honorably fulfill Horst’s crusade.

Dad was never impressed by who people said they were. He was impressed by what you did. And that instilled a big work ethic in me.
