Tell us about yourself! What keeps you busy?
I just turned 30, happened in a flash. I have 3 children ranging from 10 months to 13 years old. They keep me very busy. I am very passionate about the outdoors, and constantly trying to ingrain how important the outdoors are to my children. I want them to have respect for the outdoors, and understand the impact they have on the environment.
What do your friends go to you for advice on?
My friends come to me for advice on healthy products that are kid approved. Being a mom I know how hard it is to splurge on items that kids might not like. So, I am always honest about the products I have tried, to help my friends know what’s worth buying.
What types of natural products are always in your cupboard?
Some of the natural products you can always find in my cupboard would be household cleaners. I think since having kids I have become overly aware of the importance of what I’m using to clean my home with – as they touch and lick just about everything!
Which natural products are you most excited about?
Products for my growing family! Since having my first kid, I have gained a lot of knowledge about kids products. I am always looking at the back of anything kid related to learn more about the ingredients and how healthy the product is for my kids.
What was your favorite natural product that you tried through Social Nature so far?
I have tried 8 natural products so far. I would have to say that the Forager Cashew Yogurt was one of my favorite natural products! I had to cut diary due to my baby having a sensitivity. This was an amazing product to replace yogurt for me.
We’re so happy you loved it! How do you usually like to share your product reviews?
My favorite way to share Social Nature product reviews would have to be Instagram. I just have a lot of fun creating pictures that show what I do with products. Pictures really speak for themselves.
How does it feel to be a Everyday Influencer?
I love being an Everyday Influencer!! I love trying new products, and helping others who may be on the fence about trying something new as well. I have been introduced to some really amazing products, that without trying them, I would have never known what I was missing out on.
“I love trying new products and helping others who may be on the fence about trying something new as well.”
That’s the whole idea! Have you influenced any of your friends to try the Social Nature products you’ve reviewed and shared?
I know I am inspiring people to #trynatural because they tell me the products they discover through my post. I am constantly telling people, even strangers, about products I get through Social Nature. One of my sisters recently discovered that her husband is allergic to gluten, so I am always sharing gluten free finds with her.
Why do you continue to be a part of the Social Nature community?
I love the content you share, from educational blog posts to the contests you post on social media, it’s all great. I love how interactive you are with everyone. The products you put out are products I feel comfortable getting behind. I also just love the reason behind why Social Nature was created, to inspire more people to #trynatural; it’s a genius way to spread awareness and get the conversation around natural products started.
Thanks! So, if you could wish for one natural product to try, what would it be?
Oh, that’s a tough one! If I could wish for one natural product to try, it would be cosmetics! I haven’t had the opportunity to try a ton of all-natural cosmetics.
Thank you for inspiring people to #trynatural!
