Meet The Team!

Elaine

Hi, I'm Elaine! Momma to Madelyn (18) and Ethan (14) and also a small business owner. My passion for health and wellness was born from my personal journey. Years of unhealthy addictions, poorly executed exercise plans, no self love, anxiety, depression, PTSD, and the list goes on. I began to intensely study nutrition, yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda. I became a licensed massage therapist, Integrative Holistic Health Coach and certified yoga instructor. What I found was a new appreciation and acceptance for myself. Starting R2R was my way of sharing this with the world. It has been a crazy few years in the "small biz" community trying to keep up with everything but it has also been so rewarding. The people I have met have kept me and the business going! I am so lucky to be on this journey surrounded by staff and customers that I love!

Ellie

Hello, my name is Ellie! I’m 21 years old and a four on the enneagram. I’m a part time missionary with a huge heart for Jesus and coffee! I’m planning on opening a coffee shop in the next few years to employ women who have been victims of sex trafficking. I first discovered Root2Rise through a friend of mine who posted about it all the time. When I came in, I instantly fell in love with the people, what the owners stood for, and the community that supported the business. I felt like I made a new friend every time I came in!  I definitely knew it was a place I’d like to be apart of from the moment I walked in. It’s such a good feeling to wake up and be excited to go to work.

Leah

Hey guys! My name is Leah. I’ve been with Root2Rise since June of 2021. I’m a lover of reading, country swing, big band music, and Maverick City Music. I have plans to pursue a counseling degree, and then go into missionary work. I’m a huge fan of Root2Rise (especially the chocolate almond smoothie), and all the ways we get to serve anyone and everyone who comes to visit!
