At 15 years old, I began my career in the fashion industry. Despite hating being in front of the camera, I saw the space as an extension of one of my childhood loves, the theatre.
Once on set, all my insecurities went away. I could play with who I was and the different versions of myself. From the covers of Vogue to a Victoria’s Secret angel to the runways of Chanel, Valentino, Prada, and Dior, I grew up all around the world.
With the constant traveling, jet lag, and long hours on set, it was important for me to find natural ways to keep my energy up and my body healthy so I could continue to perform and keep up with the lifestyle.
When you have cameras constantly shooting your every angle, it’s important that you feel your best, not just look your best. Because if you feel terrible and exhausted, the camera can see it.
Whenever I needed something to pick me up, help me sleep, or just feel vibrant for a shoot, I would think back to childhood weekends at my grandparents’ farm.
From homemade jam and pickles to homemade herbal cough syrup, it was my days at my grandparents’ house that gave me an appreciation for the land and an understanding of the natural cures it held.
Natural, holistic health was always a part of my childhood, but it was only during my years traveling the world through fashion that I learned how to make it work for me. It was then that I really understood the power of it.
After having kids, I knew I wanted to find something I could put everything into. Something I could create to give back and create something better for the world.
I just didn’t know exactly what.
The Start of Gryph & IvyRose
Meeting my two partners Rachel Finger and Orion Nevel, was serendipitous.
Rachel had two twin daughters delivered prematurely at 28 weeks. She had to spend three months in the ICU with them. During their first year, they had so many issues, from not being able to go to the bathroom to not being able to sleep.
After trying the medical route and not seeing much progress, she was desperate. With her tiny babies on such strong drugs to function, she thought that there must be a better way.
It was then that she met Orion, an herbalist I had also been seeing with my family.
Orion’s practice also included that of his father. When they combined their practices of acupuncture and Chinese medicine, it made for a life-changing combination. Within a week of seeing Orion, Rachel’s daughters could finally go to the bathroom, sleep, and so much more.
She was so amazed by the progress. She knew something this special, natural, and effective had to become more widely available for everyone.
It was there at Orion’s practice that all three of us connected. We knew how powerful these traditional Chinese medicines were, but we also knew they had to be made more approachable, more fun, more modern.
That is where Gryph & IvyRose was born- a wellness company focused on creating quality products to assist kids and parents with whatever they need, naturally. From healing their digestive system to improving their mood, we make safe and effective products, creating a foundation of health for children and enhancing their parents’ health.
From our amazing pediatrician, Dr. Stephen Cowan, to our herbalist, Orion, our team covers all the bases to provide an all-around go-to wellness resource for children and parents.
Our products aren’t just based on what is hip and trendy. Each product is a symphonic combination of specific herbs in Chinese medicine that have been healing generations for thousands of years. We’ve just made them more approachable and more delicious for our families and yours.
It is vital for us to make these powerful, natural herbal formulas easy to use and effective for both children and adults with all-natural ingredients they can trust.
Each of us is very hands-on throughout the process. I, personally, love being a part of the manufacturing process, the testing, branding, and marketing.
My kids love being a part of the testing process, trying out each of our products before launching them. With their bluntness, they really are the best focus groups we’ve ever had.
The favorite product in my house that they have tested and we’ve launched has got to be the Chocolate Heart Probiotic. We make it for kids but also for adults. I love how we have this product that’s like a treat with a benefit and one that any parent can do with their child.
We all put so much love into our products; it is so special to share these life-changing products with the world.
We hope you love these products as much as our families do.
