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 22 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!

Katie

I have always known I was put on this earth to help people. The first avenue I took to fulfill my purpose was to work in customer service, and I have 5+ years of experience doing so. What I've learned over those years is that I excel in comforting people in any situation. I also love talking with customers and building relationships within our community to last a lifetime!  Since becoming a mama to my wild little man Grayson, I have been drawn to natural approaches to health and wellness. In 2013 I became certified in Reflexology - a therapeutic massage based on the theory that reflex points on the feet and hands are linked to every part of the body - which is used to relieve tension and treat illness.  Since that time, my passion for natural healing has grown as I continue learning and experiencing the benefits of juicing and having a Holistic Health coach as a best friend! My hope is to help educate the community about what our team has to offer and how we can help you live and feel your best!
