Inspired by Our Mother
"As a teen, I began to struggle with depression and anxiety. My mother encouraged me to maintain a self-care routine. Back then, I had no plan in place for caring for my mind and body. Since I've became an adult, I recognized the importance of prioritizing oneself. I hope to inspire people who are not yet on that journey to take the first step." - Risha
MEET THE FOUNDERS (Risha & Shanée)
I have always enjoyed helping others through community service and my choice of jobs. I’ve been a landscaper, an ESL teacher, worked with children with autism, and the list goes on. I want Vera Organix to be a brand that cares about its customer’s well-being.
Shanée is a former high school teacher. She often spoke to her students about social emotional wellness and finding purpose. Self care is important to her, because regardless of our drive and passions, we need to make sure that we are healthy, so that we can better give to others.
