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.
Starting off solely as a Graphic Designer with her BFA in Design, Casey gained a wide range of roles and experience working within a small marketing team for a large recreational cannabis company. Casey decided to make a shift in this industry to focus more closely on the medicinal qualities of hemp and to improve the way it is presented to the world. It is her goal to properly educate, inform, de-stigmatize, and create awareness around the magical plant we love and adore. Casey has always displayed a deep admiration and personal relationship with root medicine & holistic healing, so Vital You instantly felt like home and she feels grateful everyday to be working with and learning more about her passions.
