Hi, friend! So happy to "meet" you here! A little about me...
My name is Sherri and along with my husband Andrew and our two kiddos- Casey and Anna- I currently live in Pensacola, Florida. We are a military family- both my husband and I are retried Army Helicopter Pilots. We were both officially retired in 2021 and our last assignment brought us to Florida and for the foreseeable future, we will call this home! After 20+ years of moving around every 12-36 months, its both amazing and terrifying to be putting down some roots. Fun Peek at the Future: we have a 35' RV and we are planning to take this show on the road in a few years though. So, stay tuned!
I got started with Essential Oils in 2014 just after our son was born and a few days after my husband deployed to Afghanistan. I was still on Active Duty with the Army myself and trying to navigate my new role as a mom while working full time and it was...brutal. My friend Shannon (an Army Labor & Delivery Nurse) was doing the same...with triplets! She shared about getting allllll the sleep, boosting her milk supply and keeping the family's immune system in tip-top shape using essential oils and I immediately jumped in.
I knew nothing about essential oils or the various brands out there. I knew nothing about the toxins lurking inside our bath, kitchen and laundry cabinets. I just knew I needed more sleep and stress support STAT!
Thankfully, I had stumbled into Young Living and a team full of nature + science minded mamas dedicated to educating, empowering and supporting others on their wellness journeys. I learned about the YL Seed to Seal promise...I got to visit 3 of their farms to see it in action for myself...and I was so grateful that I landed in the very best the industry has to offer.
At first, I was just interested in diffusing and replacing candles. But, slowly I started the process of ditching and switching out toiletries, supplements, cleaning products, baby and beauty products. I was worried this would be an expensive change for my family but...the versatility of the oils and products blew me away and when you can use one thing to replace four or five...the savings adds up quickly! And the peace of mind that I'm using healthier, cleaner and more natural products on and around my family...priceless.
As my excitement grew, so did my business and here we are...in something completely unexpected.
Favorite products: Stress Away (everything its name implies and more), Gentle Baby (skin, relaxation, tantrum tamer), Ningxia Red (antioxidant goodness at the core of my family's secret to staying above the wellness line), Thieves Household Cleaner (truly an all purpose, green cleaning powerhouse) and Manuka (along with saline rinses & lymphatic massage, this oil replaced my 10 year allergy med habit and annual sinus infection antibiotics). For real...Manuka BLEW MY MIND.
Fast fun facts about me:
1. I'm from Martinsville, VA...where are my Nascar short track fans at?
2. I'm an ESFJ, 6w7, 4/6 Manifesting Generator (any personality type geeks out there?)
3. Tacos and Margaritas are LIFE. Fight me.
4. Everything in life is an excuse to eat cake...coconut, chocolate or lemon especially.
5. Late blooming mama- I was considered "elderly" on the maternity ward at 36 and 38 when my kiddos were born!
6. My favorite colors are blue & green which works well in a beach town.
7. I hate sand. Yep...I live at the beach. Meh...win some, lose some.
