Lori Roop, Clinical Herbalist and Nutritionist
I attended a 3-year certified clinical herbalist program in Boulder, CO, and after finishing school, I proceeded to see clients for a while. I eventually transitioned to creating an herbal, all natural body product business called l.c. of acirema.
Everything changed in 2010. While training for a marathon, severe and unexplained fatigue and many other symptoms struck and my health has significantly declined ever since. Just recently, after seeing over 30 practitioners and trying on about every diagnosis from adrenal fatigue, to insulin resistant, to chronic fatigue, I was finally diagnosed with Lyme, and apparently chronic versus acute. It’s a nasty, debilitating disease, with mine being predominantly Neuroborreliosis. I’m using herbs, GAPS-ish diet, frequency healing, and a few other alternative methods, and I have to say that I am more excited than ever to share how powerful herbs and real food can be.

Aimée Suen is a healthy food blogger at small eats. After gaining weight in college, Aimée started cooking, eating more fruits and vegetables, exercising and learning more about food. She discovered that healthy eating doesn’t need to be bland, boring, or restrictive and she started blogging to share that. Aimee is passionate about sharing recipes, nutrition, and knowledge that can inspire and empower people to live happy, healthy lives. When she’s not in the kitchen, she’s studying to become a Nutritional Therapist Practitioner, practicing yoga, or reading. You can find Aimée on Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest.
Kelsey Rae Steffen, Author of Full of Days
Kelsey Steffen – I am a wife, a mother and forever a learner. My husband and I desire to live a life “Full of Days.” This means finding “fullness” in the everyday grind, which encompasses every area of life: parenting, home-schooling, health and wellness, time management, cooking, and cleaning. I spend my days homeschooling our three older kiddos (and wrangling our rowdy two-year-old), preparing food the traditional way, unabashedly doting over my handsome hubby, and refining it all while sharing with you. Get to know us “behind the scenes” as we share our attempts at living a life Full of Days on Instagram, and come join the discussion on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter. You can also find tons of educational and fun content on our blog.
