What makes you feel like (y)ourself?
Sitting seaside in complete stillness. There is something about the vast, open water that makes me feel grounded. It’s my siren call to recenter and reconnect with what matters most to me.
Who (or what) inspires you?
Children’s books! Reminds me how humans are gentle, sentient creatures in need of love. Lots and lots of love.
What’s your favorite Ourself product and why?
Best Ageless advice you ever received?
David Bowie said it best: “Aging is an extraordinary process where you become the person you always should have been.”
