WellnessMama.com is an online resource for women and moms who want to live a healthier life. Our founder, Katie, along with a team of researchers and medical advisors, analyze a wide variety of health, parenting, and natural living topics and summarize the information in a clear and usable way. Our goal is to present practical tips, real food recipes, DIY beauty instructions, green cleaning tutorials, natural remedies, and other information to make your life better.
The Wellness Mama Team
The team behind Wellness Mama is dedicated to providing up-to-date practical information and resources for moms. These resources are fact-checked by our editorial team and reviewed by our medical advisors for accuracy.
Katie Wells, CTNC, MCHC, who thinks most bios are pretty boring, wants to live in a world where laundry folds itself, moms get to wear the superhero costumes they’ve already earned, and our kids never have to deal with the health problems our world is currently facing.
A mom of six with a background in journalism, she took health into her own hands and started researching to find answers to her own health struggles. Her research turned into a blog and podcast that turned into an amazing community (starring you!). If Katie was writing this, she wouldn’t tell you thatshe’s written over 1,500 blog posts, 3 books，被评为健康和保健领域最具影响力的人之一。或者她被称为当前妈妈的思想领袖。
When she’s not reading medical journals, creating new recipes, or2020年亚博收网行动 , you can find her somewhere outside in the sun, and six kids or undertaking some DIY remodeling project that inevitably takes twice as long as it was supposed to.
Obligatory additional unrelated randomness: LEGO® walking world record holder, doula, speed-reader, scuba-diver, amateur pole-vaulter, INTJ, highly experienced in answering the question, “why.” Loves the oxford comma, irony, and missed opportunities.
The Wellness Mama Editorial team fact checks each article before it is published. Our team is like family, and our goal is to make this website a welcoming place for community and support.
雪莉was a part of the first online classes at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2010 and has had a love of nutrition and helping others ever since.
Jackie, Manager of all things Social (Media)
Jackiegrew up in the heart of Nashville, TN where she met and married her hubby at the age of 22. Sadly, the one song she requested of the wedding DJ was Party In The USA by Miley Cyrus (cringe). She went to school to be a Dental Assistant and worked in that field until her family moved to North Carolina. While she thought they were moving to the beach, their vacation turned into a mini wannabe homestead, and a long, arduous two hour drive to the closest “Florida like” beach.
Jackie has been part of the Wellness Mama team for a couple years now and has transitioned into our Social Media Guru. She manages the Wellness Mama pages and groups across all our various platforms. One of her favorite parts of being part of the team is the opportunity to read and respond to reader comments and questions.
As the Co-Founder and Chief Technical Officer for Wellness Mama,Sethis the ninja that keeps the site running and optimized (and fixes it when the rest of us accidentally break something). He also happens to be the willing test subject for all of the weird biohacky things Katie tests in the name of health.
We’re pretty sure he may be part fish, as when he’s not working, you’ll often find him in some type of water: ocean, river, pool, cold plunge, or attempting a new water sport. He loves the outdoors, and infuses baseball references, movie quotes, and occasional four-letter words into our team culture.
苏珊received a bachelor’s degree in nutrition and dietetics before becoming a mom. Now she uses all her skills and knowledge to teach her children how to choose healthy foods and drinks. She always chuckles quietly when she hears her toddlers tell people that they can’t drink pop because it has caffeine or that they have to eat some dinner before they can have dessert.
At Wellness Mama, Suzanne works on all the posts that have to do with food. She enjoys keeping the recipes and nutrition information in them organized, standardized, up-to-date, and easy to follow.
When Suzanne has free time she enjoys playing Euro-style board games and spending time outside with her family. She loves to camp, attempt to garden (through trial and error), and relax on the beach.
杰米is addicted to writing, herbal tea, and reading way too many medical journals. You’ll often find her barefoot in the garden or convincing her husband not to mow various wild plants in the yard she wants to use.
杰米’s love of all things plants has been around since her childhood and it’s continued to grow. Over the years she’s studied with herbalists like Jim McDonald, Dr. Aviva Romm, and Dr. Jessie Hawkins. She has a hard time not giving herbal remedy advice to people who didn’t ask her for it.
With a background in journalism and education she has a knack for communicating natural health in an easy to understand way. She’s worked for many natural health websites over the years developing food and DIY recipes as well as doing her favorite thing ever: writing research articles that she spends a ridiculous amount of time researching.
杰米has been working with Katie and the Wellness Mama team for over four years and has loved every minute. Recently her role has evolved into being the DIY and Natural Remedies Editor for the team.

That day, her life changed and Katie decided to work to change that statistic. It’s been a long journey, throughfive more pregnancies她,学习她得了甲状腺疾病和working to find answers, and completely changing her family’s lifestyle from eating pasta and using chemical cleaners to real food and natural homemade products.
Her goal, and the goal of Wellness Mama, is to help make the transition to living naturally easier for you and to share the journey (since we’re all always learning and growing).
I’m not a doctor, a lawyer or a “health guru” (that’s why I have medical advisors!), I’m just a mom who is super passionate about creating a healthy life for my family, and I’m guessing you’re a lot like me. In fact, I compiled a checklist of the things I wish I’d known when I first started, the cliff notes of natural living, in a simple guide, and I’d love to give it to you.Just enter your email address hereand I’ll send it your way. Don’t worry- I hate spam more than you, so you can unsubscribe at any time.
Here’s the thing, I can’t change the health of the world alone, but I’m absolutely convinced that as a group, women and moms can. Here’s why- we, as women and mothers have tremendous power. Not only are we raising the next generation, feeding them, teaching them, etc but we control the majority of food dollars spent around the world. So my goal is to help every mom become a “Wellness Mama” so that together, we can create lasting change.
我经常被问到“Do you work or are you just a mom?”这个问题使我感到沮丧，因为无论我们在哪里工作或我们的正式职业描述，每个母亲，每个母亲都努力工作。而且因为“只是一个妈妈”就足够了！我希望成为妈妈对您来说更容易。
Most of the time, I stick to real food, natural living, beauty products and natural remedies, but if we become friends on Facebook or Instagram, you’ll also hear occasionally about my life with six kids, what I do in my free time, the best sports team ever, and my totally normal hobbies like jujutsu, and reading medical journals.
But enough about me, I want to know about you! Come join the amazing community around here, say hi in the comments of a post that looks interesting to you and tell me about how you ended up here!
