Meet the Vital You Team:
Owner/CEO/Bath Bomb & Toner Creator
Originally from Buffalo, NY, I traveled to Colorado in 2012 and never left. I found myself captivated by the beauty of the mountains and the abundance of opportunity to learn about alternative ways of healing.
Since living in Boulder, I attended Bauman college for holistic nutrition, and the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism for herbal medicine.
I have a deep passion for holistic living, nature, and exercise recovery. The concept of Vital You came through me in November, 2017 as an opportunity to blend all of my passions into one, cohesive product.
VY is truly my heart & soul, and when I hear that our products bring healing or relief to you & your ailments, I become filled with so much humbled gratitude. Thank you.
Jess' background lies in the intersection of natural sciences, language sciences, neuroscience, and art. Yet her experience with herbal healing was grown entirely from her various responsibilities at VY. Starting small, she dedicated herself to organization and general upkeep of the production and packaging spaces. Time and passion created a bath bomb expert out of her. Now, Jess is committed to ensuring that all aspects of Vital You’s production hold integrity, creativity, and positive energy. Her goal is to reflect that in everything that we make. If you were to ask her, she would tell you that her role at VY is that of a behind-the-scenes grounding force for all of our products.
With background experience in design & marketing within recreational Cannabis, it is Casey's goal to properly educate, inform, de-stigmatize, and create awareness around the medicinal and recreational use of hemp, herbs, and botanicals. As well as promoting self-care to our fast paced society. Casey has always displayed a deep admiration and personal relationship with root medicine & holistic healing, so Vital You naturally feels like home and she is grateful everyday to be working with her passions and an amazing team behind the magic.

Head of Sales
Myriah has been a long time lover of Vital You products and has officially joined the team after leaving her corporate event planning job. Myriah is passionate about natural living and plant magic. Myriah knows the importance of self-care and has a huge passion for sharing the benefits of Vital You with everyone she meets. Her goal is to create meaningful partnerships with local businesses and to get Vital You into as many hands (and baths) as possible. After 10 years in hotels, 7 of which spent event planning, Myriah knows how to make sincere connections with the people she meets and she cannot wait for the relationships she is going to make during this journey. If she’s not in the bath or chatting with someone about bath bombs you can find her visiting a local brewery with her husband and cat.
Regional Sales Lead
Nicola is a passionate animal wellness advocate who has previously worked in Eco Conservation, Animal Care at a shelter, and is now a Veterinary Technician at small vet practice in California. As a chronic migraine and fibromyalgia warrior she has had a love of holistic products and plant based living for the past few years.
