Caroline has been making herbal medicines for herself, her friends and family since 1995, and developed the formula for All Good Goop in 1998. In 2005 she realized it was turning into a business, and established Elemental Herbs in the end of that year. Much has happened in that time, but the process and attention to detail for that original product remains unchanged. With an all-star team, including her husband, Ryan, she doesn’t know how she ever did it without everyone. When not entrenched in company growth, Caroline loves to play on granite rocks, single-track trails, windblown waves and untracked snowfields, all with an eye for new adventures.

Alexa's contagious laughter will brighten your day. She has an excitement for everything; such as playing music, “trying to” surf, creating art, and barbecuing among good friends. Growing up in Minnesota, she filled her time braving the cold as a cross-country skier, but spent the summers backpacking remote areas in the Rockies. When she moved in 2009 to study Kinesiology at Cal Poly, she never imagined that her love of the outdoors and her passion for holistic wellbeing would lead her to discover a company like Elemental Herbs. Her main role at EH is to be the customer service connection for accounts spanning from the Rockies to the Midwest.
