North Oak’s mission is dedicated to fostering an environment of reflection for our conscientious consumers who will embody our luxury skin care products during their daily wellness routine.
Our products are created using superior, natural ingredients. When possible, we purchase from Fair Trade organizations contributing to better pay and working conditions.
Providing the consumer with a simple holistic skin regime… As nature intended.
Nature, although a gift, can also be our enemy.
The environmental pollutants to which we expose ourselves daily wreak havoc on our delicate skin.
We run households, corporations even governments, then we get to run our kids to every event known to man. We use our clothes to wipe tears and noses and we convince our kids that “mommy spit” can cure anything.
Our skin care should be as Bad-Ass as we are…
Since I’m not “young” anymore I have a long string of “been there, done that” in my life.
My early years of exploration were lived on street named “North Oak”.
North Oak Apothecary was created out of realizing that those early years are the foundation on which we build our house.
I have come to believe that I am innately hard wired to explore, question, challenge authority and traverse where few women have.
I like my whisky with one cube of ice. Sometimes I go to bed without removing my makeup, yes, we all do it at times…
If you really hate me put a bag of chips in front of me.
I am a mother to three amazing men and grandma to seven beautiful beings.
My careers include 20 years as a Paramedic, Lieutenant on one of the largest Fire Departments on the East Coast and did a career change at the age of 48 into nursing.
Working in harsh environments and helping those whose medical history include a barrage of medications I began a personal goal of living holistically.
I came to understand that everything we consume or come into contact affects us on a cellular level. Medications can be lifesaving, but I also believe we need to incorporate a holistic lifestyle. Meaning, cleaner food choices, getting out into the sunshine and moving our bodies, laughing more and love even harder.
I love, truly to my core, working with people, providing a blanket (called a warm fuzzy), holding their hands, giving hope and encouragement and being the lighthouse in their storm. I listen with an open heart and soul and will always be your advocate.
I am a serious hugger, so be prepared when in my presence.
Thank you for making me a part of your life….
