down to the basics

Lover of art, wellness, and science—that basically sums up what I love and do on a daily basis. I’m a full-time scientist and educator in the making—currently in route for a Master’s of Science. In between all that, I’m either geeking out to health, fitness, and nutrition science or getting in touch with my creative side through hand lettering, journaling, graphic design, etc! It can be totally hectic, but being mindful of how I treat my body, my mind and my well-being has kept me resilient.

Through adversity, I found clarity, and that’s what led me to Jade Marmalade.

I’ve created this platform to give you my simple, but functional approaches to unleashing your creativity and practicing holistic wellness geared to uplift you + help you THRIVE. In this chaotic world, our passions and well-being can be so easily neglected, but it can be just as easy to flip the script with intention and mindfulness. When you find a creative outlet to express yourself coupled with a positive mindset, you are bound to THRIVE.

That’s why I’m here to give you insightful and actionable tips and resources that can help you express yourself and elevate your mindset. Are you ready to build an intentional life you whole-heartedly love?



When you discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy, care enough to make room for it in your life.
