Jessie Shafer, RD

Content Director / Editor in Chief

My must-have natural product is Nature’s Path Q’ia Bars and Lavilin Jojoba Gel Cream

My favorite quote is “Whether you think you can or think you can’t—you’re right.” ~Henry Ford

My super power is predicting the perfect size Tupperware for any amount of leftovers. My husband thinks it’s amazing.

My favorite movie is Tombstone. There’s just something about those cowboys.

When I’m not working, I’m usually testing out recipes, working out, or planning my next party or getaway.


Katie Dove

Content Design Team Manager / Art Director

My must-have natural product is Bhakti Chai and Chocolove Almonds & Sea Salt in Dark Chocolate

My favorite quote is “Quiet people have the loudest minds.”

When I’m not working, you will find me in my saddle (on my road bike), on a trail, or on the slopes.

My favorite movie is The Princess Bride—an oldie, but a classic! 

I get my design inspiration from typography and being outside in nature.


Jenna Blumenfeld

Senior Food Editor

My must-have natural product is cashew butter! It’s creamier than peanut or almond butter, and here’s my guilty secret: I eat it straight from the jar with a spoon.

My favorite quote is “My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” ~Maya Angelou

When I’m not working, I’m usually riding my road bike into Boulder’s beautiful canyons. When it’s snowy, you can find me at the rock climbing gym, skiing the slopes, or throwing dinner parties in my tiny apartment.

My favorite movie is Jiro Dreams of Sushi. It’s a beautiful film about a world-class sushi chef. Even though I’m vegetarian, I love seeing the artistry and dedication that goes into choosing perfect ingredients and cooking them with grace.

For lunch I often mash an avocado with sea salt and hot sauce, then eat it with cucumber slices and whole-wheat crackers. I pair it with chia-infused kombucha and I’ve got myself a filling, healthy lunch.


Jessica Rubino

Senior Beauty Editor / Content Marketing Director

My must-have natural product is MyChelle Fruit Enzyme Cleanser. Obsessed.

My favorite expression is “The tides are turning.” It represents what happens when consumers wake up to the importance of buying safe, natural products. And I believe this is finally becoming a reality. 

When I’m not working, I’m usually working on some kitchen experiment or trying a new restaurant.

My favorite movie is Muscle Shoals—a must-watch for music lovers.

For lunch I usually pack leftovers or go to one of downtown Boulder’s healthy options. For dessert, I go for a nice long walk with co-workers!


Jenny Ivy

Digital Content Producer

My must-have natural product is Creative Snacks Organic Coconut Bites. Who doesn't like coconut?   

My favorite quote is “It always seems impossible until it's done." - Nelson Mandela

When I’m not working, I’m usually reading, watching a flick, playing with my dog and cat, cooking, or checking out what's at the local art museum.

My favorite movie is ... Forrest Gump

My favorite place is ... western Colorado. I've lived in Colorado all my life and still haven't seen all its natural wonders.



Mia Chambers

Retail Account Manager / Digital Marketing Services

My must-have natural product is Mineral Fusion anything & Jane Iredale Lipgloss in Pink Candy.

My super power is parallel parking—I am really good.

When I’m not working, I’m usually doing something creative: painting, singing, or collaging!

My favorite kitchen item is my clay tagine. It cooks everything perfectly—plus it sounds fancy, but it’s not! 

I make a mean Gourmet Chocolate Truffle. 



Cindy Van Schouwen​

Retail Account Manager / Digital Marketing Services

My must-have natural product is Vega vanilla protein powder. I add it to my fruit smoothie every morning.

My favorite quote: "You must do the things you think you cannot do." - Eleanor Roosevelt

My favorite book is Personal History by Katharine Graham and The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver.

When I am not working, I’m usually trying to hang out with one of my daughters, running, swimming, riding or going to a yoga class.

My super power is my plant-based diet! Ever since I went from vegetarian to vegan I have a ton more energy.

For lunch I usually eat tofu or beans and rice and some sort of veggie…never gets old!
