They call her Jes the CCC -- aka Chronic Climber Chick. Mantra is: travel to learn, adventure to grow, advocate for a healthy planet. She began this project by chronicling the stories from her experiences on the blog Chronic Climber Chick.
A multitude of challenges led her to finding ways to connect with her natural state of being. It has helped with healing and changed perspective amidst difficult times mentally, physically and emotionally. She spends much of her time within multiple communities giving back while learning as a way to share with others the gifts she has have been given.
She spent 15 years in professional sales consulting mostly in the healthcare/medical device arena. The day came to leap from the corporate world to pursue her own path. The challenge came to begin to climb of biggest summits life has to offer, teaching and learning with the world through healthy transformation. Inspiring people to connect to the essential basics of self-care, community and wellness along the way has been her greatest joy of all.
With the rugged desert mountains as a backdrop to daily life, Arizona is the place she calls home. From taking on rim to rim in the Grand Canyon, backpacking Havasupai to summiting the Southwest's mountains time and again, she believes leading an energetic lifestyle in the outdoors that both provokes and honors the spirit. In July of 2013 she added the quest that took her to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Since then her Tour De Mother Nature has led her on a variety of divinely inspired adventures that have added a tremendous amount of education and opportunities to give back to this planet we call home.
The tenants of her life philosophy are honesty, authenticity, courage and a genuine spirit. She believes that by sharing your own life experiences you can serve as a guide, helping others traverse their own route. She believes in seeking and discovering your inner voice, and having the courage to be true to your own unique nature. She finds solitude with nature and on her yoga mat to look inside for the answers needed rather than looking to external sources. She believes the answers we all seek are inside, you just have to find where they speak to you.
This whole wellness journey led her to developing a line of simple, natural, organic botanical body care remedies; all responsibly sourced from nature. The creation of these products started as a simple way to show love and appreciation to self, family, friends and the planet.
They have become a way to share the love with those who have joined the journey of self discovery and as a beacon for environmental and self-care education.
This project has slowly grown into a larger footprint of body, mind, spirit and wellness on a community and global level through sharing education and through advocacy work for our planet, the place we all call home.
It is her hope that you enjoy these consciously crafted creations and the messages that are shared through them.
Let the high vibe of your soul shine through your own healthy skin while we work towards a healthy planet for all.
Nicole's passion for helping others enjoy, have fun and learn about the world and environment around them are what drives her to educate and develop content and remedies from the natural, botanical sources our earth offers.
She attended Northern Arizona University, home of the Lumberjacks and graduated with a major in Forestry, along with two double minors in Anthropology and Parks and Recreation.
In our busy modern world, her bountiful work aims to create a more sustainable and healthy lifestyle for our communities.
She is always looking for new adventures and you will often find Nicole outdoors.
She will be our lead alchemist growing our current line while developing our future remedies made from plant based ingredients as beacons of education to transform the way we think about medicinal plants.
