About Kula Mama
Hi. I’m Heather.
I help families incorporate holistic health and nutrition practices into their everyday lives for better health. I’m passionate about what I do because our kids need us now more than ever before.
Today’s generation of children is the first generation of kids expected to have a shorter lifespan than their parents. Faced with rising rates of obesity, asthma, eczema, cancer, autism and food allergies, the current generation of children is often referred to as “Generation Rx.”
I don’t know about you, but as a mother of two young children, the state of our kids’ health greatly concerns me. Long before I had kids of my own, I knew my purpose was to help elevate the health of all children. I went to graduate school to pursue a Master’s Degree in Health Education and Holistic Nutrition with the intention of helping families to create healthy holistic practices in their own lives. Currently I’m pursuing a professional herbalist certification to help families learn about plant medicine and how to use herbs for healing.
My joy is the email or phone call I get from a family saying their child’s eczema cleared, or that they used a natural remedy and it WORKED! I love watching families take back ownership over their own health and wellness. Knowledge is the key to empowered health. Let’s give our kids the tools they need to grow up healthy and thriving.
