Ashley Emery

Somewhere between naturally birthing my daughter that doctors said was a “slim to no chance to conceive due to impossible conditions,” and the ongoing successful treatment of my prolapse, endometriosis, fibroids, and libido with the ancient practice of Vaginal Steaming I took pause. The natural healing and reconnection to my body and womb space was how I became truly liberated. It was this freedom and newfound pain-free health that I shaped Wholesome Haven. Read more>>

Lindsey Sholti

I’m a small town, midwestern girl who has always had big dreams. I am very blessed with a career I adore as a Speech-Language Pathologist. But in 2016, I felt the crushing weight of all of the hatred, anger, and divisiveness going on in our country. My husband came home to me, crying in the kitchen, wishing I could change the world and make it a better place. Read more>>

Every time I wanted to find a picture that a took a week or month ago even it was a task. I would have to scroll up through my phone gallery to find what I am looking for. One day it clicked for me. Why isn’t it already a thing? There should be one big picture with all of my pictures inside of it that I can easily search and access immediately.. (perhaps a tag of sorts). Read more>>

I have always enjoyed working with my hands and considered myself a crafty person. When I became a mom in 2014, I wanted a sign that said “Eat Fart Laugh” but couldn’t find anything that fit my sense of humor. So began my sign making. I quickly dove into making more and selling them online. I have since expanded my skill set into building furniture and other DIY adventures. Read more>>

I was always studying or working at a desk and wanted SOMETHING to entertain me but not distract me from my work. I remembered those cheap little balancing toys as a kid and thought I’d find one to keep on my desk and play with. I kept looking for larger, higher quality ones, but they simply did not exist. I thought to myself, There HAS to be a way to make these things. Read more>>

Fitness has always been a way of life for me as I grew up playing sports all thru high school and even a little college basketball. After graduating with an Exercise Science degree from Fort Lewis College, my journey brought me back to Arizona (where I was actually born before moving to Texas to be raised). I met my great friend Luis Galindo and current business partner at a 24 Hour Fitness where we both worked for over six years. Read more>>

I have always been the “planner” in my family and groups of friends. Getting a group together and executing a perfect plan is something I love. I grew up in Los Angeles and had the opportunity to attend many special events that started my passion for all things events.
